    'Chemical Ali' Ali Hassan al-Majid Hanged Monday

    January 25, 2010 11:10 AM EST (Updated: January 25, 2010 11:20 AM EST)


    Saddam Hussein's cousin and henchmen, Ali Hassan al-Majid (also known as "Chemical Ali"), was hanged today in Iraq after receiving 13 counts of genocide. Al-Majid received 4 death sentences total in his lifetime and was finally executed after the most recent. Perhaps most famously known for his involvement in a gas-attack that killed approximately 5,000 Kurds in 1988 (and gave him his nickname), al-Majid was also convicted for putting down an uprising against Hussein in 1991 (for which the death toll ranges from 30,000 to 100,000) and a Baghdad revolt in 1999. Al-Majid was in the possession of U.S. authorities up to 24 hours before his execution, when he was handed over to Iraqi officials.

    I guess using the gas chamber method of execution would have been to ironic?

    Just because everyone does something does not mean that it is right to do.

        I thought he died years ago, before Saddam even. I don't think irony value is a big priority in execution, otherwise there should be more falling pianos around. :)
