Former dictator of Iraq Saddam Hussein's arrest in December, 2003 was a welcome victory for the U.S. military and it conclusively ended the prospect of a Ba' athist revival. Hussein's ability to evade coalition forces became a key test of credibility for the U.S. military in 2003. Suggestions by the U.S. politicians in the immediate aftermath that a U.S. military tribunal be established to try the former-dictator were swiftly brushed aside. However, the process by which Hussein is tried and sentenced reflects broader problems of the state's post-war reconstruction.
