By videotaping his moment of death, instead of leaving it unfilmed for the sake of his dignity, that guy managed to cut down the inevitable flood of "Saddam didn't really die, he got away and they put a fake body in the grave, he's still alive!". Sure, there's still gonna be some nutjobs that say that, but there's alwasys SOMEONE stupid enough to believe anything that can be said.
That said, what a way to end the bloodiest year in Iraq yet.
