What happened to Saddam Hussein?
    #3809148 - 02/21/05 01:32 AM (11 years, 9 months ago)

Haven't heard about him for ages, what happened to the guy. Has the trial taken place yet, is he dead, in custody?

Last I heard he was livin' it up in a luxury sweet somewhere. You think Bush Inc. would let any harm come of their buddy ol' pal Saddam?

Well, except those times they tried to kill him with missle strikes.

As far as I know, the legal wheels have begun to move, now that elections have taken place. I've read that the Iraqis are planning to put him on trial before summer. He's got a defense team (of mostly French lawyers), but I don't think he's met with them. For now, he's apparently chilling out, gardening, reading his Qu'ran and grooming that beard.

They're probably trying to figure out what to do with the body double they captured, and secretly looking for the real Hussein.



j/k....

Welcome to Miami Saddam *ahem* I mean Tom

- Actually Saddam look alikes are 10 to a penny around here, I think I might have been sitting next to Saddam on the bus the other day.

One of the poor look alikes has been hypnotsed to think he is really Saddam. It's a good deep job performed by the best in the CIA. They also gave those few millimeters of facial difference a touch to get him sooooo right.

poor guy will be executed soon.

He's keeping busy. Apparently spends most of his time writing poetry, reading the Qur'an, and attending to a garden. For a brutal dictator he sure sounds like a beatnik.

bin Laden? eh? Who is he anyway? I remember sumthin about him....ooo a few years back.

Who cares about this bin Laden guy anyway? Isn't it the terrorists we are after? Saddam was the terrorist leader right? He was the guy who led attacks on the USA after all.

Thank God he's been captured.

If he's able to over-see fiscal transfers to "Al-Qaeda in Iraq" I imagine he's eating halaal chicken.

As I publicly stated when he was captured, he will never be publicy tried. Too much Bush Sr. & CIA & weapons "stuff" would come out that would embarass the USA. They hope to hold him incommunicado until his natural death.

The reason you no longer hear of him is that he has served Bush's purpose as a scapegoat to invade Iraq. He has no purpose whatsoever now to Washington.

The proof is in the pudding.

how do you guys define public trial? entire transcripts of some form or another (video, text, audio) of the proceedings available to the public?

Didn't want to start a whole new thread, but I got such a kick out of this, I had to post it.

http://www.usatoday.com/news/world/iraq/2005-06-20-saddam-guards_x.htm

Some clips:

----------------------------------------

"NEW YORK (AP) ? Thrust unexpectedly into the role of prison guards for Saddam Hussein, a group of young American soldiers found the deposed Iraqi leader to be a friendly, talkative "clean freak" who loved Raisin Bran for breakfast, did his own laundry and insisted he was still president of Iraq, says a report published on Monday.
GQ magazine's July issue says Saddam greatly admired President Reagan and thought President Clinton was "OK," but had harsh words for both President Bushes, each of whom went to war against him."

"Saddam learned the names of the GIs guarding him, was interested in the details of their lives, which they were not supposed to discuss, and sometimes offered fatherly advice. They conversed in English.

O'Shea said when he told him he was not married, Saddam "started telling me what to do." "He was like, 'you gotta find a good woman. Not too smart, not too dumb. Not too old, not too young. One that can cook and clean.'"

Then he smiled, made what O'Shea interpreted as a "spanking" gesture, laughed and went back to washing his clothes in the sink.

The soldiers say Saddam was preoccupied with cleanliness, washing up after shaking hands and using diaper wipes to clean his meal trays, his utensils and the table before eating. "He had germophobia or whatever you call it" said Dawson, 25, of Berwick, Pa.

The article quotes the GIs on Saddam's eating preferences ? Raisin Bran Crunch was his breakfast favorite. "No Froot Loops," he told O'Shea. He ate fish and chicken but refused beef at dinner.

For a time his favorite food was Cheetos, and when those ran out, Saddam would "get grumpy," the story says. One day the guards substituted Doritos corn chips, and Saddam forgot about Cheetos. "He'd eat a family size bag of Doritos in 10 minutes," Dawson says."

Too funny.

We have "reckless fiscal policies"

America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership.
