2006: Saddam Hussein is executed

On Dec. 30, 2006, former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein was executed at the headquarters of his former military intelligence service in the Baghdad suburb of Khadimeya. The fallen dictator was convicted of crimes against humanity prior to his execution, which was carried out by Iraqi officials with the support of the United States. "He was frightened,” Mowaffak al-Rubaie, Iraq's national security adviser, told The Washington Post. Hussein is pictured in this screen grab from Iraqi national television station Al Iraqiya in the moments before his execution.
