Christopher Hitchens makes a good argument

In Slate, Christopher Hitchens puts forth a reasoned, principled critique of the mishandled death of Saddam Hussein. Unlike the weak and disordered whining by much of the left, Hitchens clearly articulates his ideas why Saddam's execution was poorly planned, hastily implemented, and unfortunately bereft of human dignity.

There is little reason to feel sorry for Saddam Hussein, but the same cannot be said of Iraq's despondent judicial and governmental state of affairs - run by a brutal majority, loyal to a bevy of militant radicals, and replete with an endless thirst for revenge.
