Noah R. Feldman, Not the Case, N.Y. Times Mag., Jan. 7, 2007, at 13.

Abstract: The author discusses the trial and execution of former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein. The author asserts that the Iraqi tribunal council, that prosecuted the case, was not properly handled and was confused on the nature of its own authority. One of the biggest problems the author has with the council is the rush to execution that Hussein received. Though the author agrees that Hussein should have been executed, he feels that Hussein should have been tried for all his crimes and not just one.
