27 die in mass Iraqi execution

United Press International recently reported that the Iraqi authorities have executed 26 men and one woman in that country's first mass execution since the overthrow of Saddam Hussein. And where do you suppose they erected the gallows? Abu Ghraib! [Read story.]

Hundreds more are supposedly on Iraq's death row, awaiting their turn.

Given the current political issues in Iraq, I wonder how many of these death row prisoners got a truly fair trial.

This is the Texas-style "democracy" that Bush wanted to spread to that part of the world.
