Saddam Could Get Death Penalty

The trial of a 20th century monster is nearing an end.

The prosecutor asked for the death penalty for Saddam Hussein and two of his co-defendants, saying in closing arguments Monday that the former Iraqi leader and his regime committed crimes against humanity in a "revenge" attack on Shiite civilians in the 1980s.

Anything less would be a travesty and miscarriage of justice.
