With this second botched execution in Iraq, is it too much to ask: why hangings? If the U.S. is leaning on, pressuring, and strongly influencing Iraq in so many facets of its existence, why not add this to the list? Perhaps suggest lethal injection or the electric chair.

Not that I'm for capital punishment, but in this instance these hangings will result in even more deaths due to the inflamed reaction leading to violent protests and likely future attacks.

Just a thought.
