Pot calling the kettle shit

From today´s Guardian:

"Following the controversy surrounding the execution of Saddam, a US military official in Baghdad has said that they would have carried it out "very differently".

Major General William Caldwell said Saddam Hussein was dignified and courteous to US guards as they left him at a prison shortly before his execution.

He said the US had made no decisions concerning Saddam's hanging.

"If you're asking me 'would we have done things differently', yes we would have," he said."

The US would´ve done things differently?
What does he mean? Like this?

Or perhaps like this?

Because when it comes to being dignified about doing awful things, the US government is definitely the best organisation to talk to.
