Saddam Hussain's Execution, was it the right timing?

As the muslims from all over the world head towards their Hajj pilgrimage, to perform the sacred activities of Haj, is it just a coincidence that hanging of Saddam occurs at the same day?Was it appropriate to coincide the two events by such closeness, by hanging Saddam on the same day as Hajj?Hajj is highly revered by the muslims all over the world, it certainly leaves a bad taste in the mouth to have this "hanging" been performed on the same day as Haj, and the entire footage being aired on TV! A terrorist or whatever, i think it was not appropriate to coincide such a venerated event of Muslims with this death penalty that has been the focus of attention of the entire world, and COULD RESULT IN DISRUPTION OF PEACE BY ANGRY MOBS who were not in favour of this. The occasion of HAjj deserved more respect from the world community, and deserved to be held while there was peace in the world over. or atleast new events that could hinder the peace process shouldn't have been conducted during Hajj days. As long as justice is brought to the world, i am in favour of it, but it's all about the timing, that i'm not so happy about. If it had been delayed for so long, i ask, what harm could have been brought if it were delayed just one more week or so?
