WASHINGTON (QWERTY NEWS) -- President Bush was upset after watching the video of Saddam Hussein's execution, comparing it to other films he has watched from the comfort of his home movie theater in his Crawford Texas Ranch, White House officials said Wednesday.
The Dark, grainy video, of Hussein's December 30 hanging had been recorded on a cell phone and leaked to the media shortly after the execution.
In the video, taunts from Shiites can be heard moments before Hussein is hanged.
Bush found the taunting of Hussein to be "disappointing" and "uninspired" compared to that which "[he] used to drum up for pledges," referring to his college fraternity, Skull and Bones. As Hussein stood on the gallows with a noose around his neck observers described Bush covering his eyes with his hand and then peeking at the screen. It was similar to the reaction he had when watching the Box Office thriller "The Ring" in 2002, and when he watched the "Mid-Term Elections" in November 2006.
Bush is reported to have described the video as "too grainy" and of too poor quality to make out "anything good." He has stated that he hopes that the eventual sequel, which is expected to star Osama Bin Laden as the man being hanged, will be of better quality and resolution, befitting the extravagant budget attached to the project.
