The Verdict is in

Sadaam Hussein sentenced to death by hanging for his role in the Dujail massacre of 1982:

Former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein was sentenced to death by hanging today for his role in the killing of 148 Shiite Muslims in the northern Iraqi village of Dujail following an attempt on his life there in 1982.

Hussein was convicted of crimes against humanity including premeditated murder, torture and forced deportation. Chief Judge Raouf Rasheed Abdul-Rahman read out the sentence at midday in the Baghdad courthouse of the Iraqi Higher Criminal Court. Footage was aired by major international television networks.

That's just for the one incident; we haven't even gotten to what he did to the Kurds six years later. Too bad you can't kill somebody twice.
