VIDEO - The London Times reports on Tuesday that the Iraqi government has ordered an investigation into the conduct of the executioners who ended the life of former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein. The investigation will focus on improper slogans called out to Hussein and the distribution of footage documenting the hanging. “There were a few guards who shouted slogans that were inappropriate and that’s now the subject of a government investigation,” said Sami al-Askari, an aide to the Prime Minister, Nouri al-Maliki. The investigation was ordered after a Shiite official warned that the leaked execution images may deteriorate violence in the region. Iraqi National Security Advisor Mowaffak al-Rubaie told the Times that the footage may damage efforts at national reconciliation, dialogue and sectarian violence. It may also affect the policies employed by Arab countries towards the insurgency. The Times reports that a Sunni group that had been in contact with the government called off the talks. “The death of Saddam means the death of reconciliation,” declared the Islamist National Liberation Movement, a Baathist faction, “There are no further secret negotiations with the criminal Government.” Saddam's execution early Saturday morning was secretly filmed with a mobile phone. The footage captures guards goading him with Shiite slogans. The images outraged many in the Muslim world and were used as ammunition by those opposing al-Maliki's government. The date of the execution, just before the holiday of Eid- al-Adha, is also considered offensive by many Sunni Muslims. Government officials have announced their plans to travel to several Arab countries on an explanatory mission, the tour is expected to include Jordan, Syria, the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia. Saad Yousif al-Muttalibi, the director of international affairs in the Iraq Ministry for Dialogue and Reconciliation who will head the delegation will also meet with the Iraqi PM on Tuesday and urge him to condemn the behavior of the executioners. "It is not our duty to tell him to go to hell," said al-Muttalibi, "this is not Islam."
