Iraq and the death penalty

I’d heard that Iraq reinstated the death penalty, but haven’t read too much about it thus far. This snappy little blog post from Wonkette caught my eye though:

Yesterday, the interim Iraqi government announced a permanent solution to crime: They’re reinstating capitol punishment. Hey, it’s an unelected, unaccountable government without a functioning justice system and the ability to kill whomever it deems guilty! That seems familiar somehow.

Yes indeedy.
