From the January 2007 Idaho Observer:

The privately public hanging of "Saddam" opens door to memory lane

Since Saddam’s "capture" Dec. 13, 2003, there have been plenty of reasons to suspect that the real Saddam was not taken into custody. If the real Saddam was not captured that day, then the real Saddam was not on trial. If the real Saddam was not on trial, then the real Saddam was not hanged Dec. 29, 2006. As you will see, there is reasonable doubt that the real Saddam was put in the noose. Regardless, the event gives us a reason to review some relevant details of the man who was once the president of Iraq.

Pictured are eight guys who look pretty similar, are about the same age and are identified as Iraqi President Saddam Hussein, but have distinctly different facial characteristics. Saddam was notorious for his use of doubles. So, which Saddam pictured, if any, is the real Saddam, which Saddam was purportedly executed?

About the "Saddam" double just sentenced and privately "hanged" - or has a different "body" been substituted while the cleanly shaved double has been flown out of Iraq, his bombastic shouting charade no longer needed?

America’s major "news" media are obediently parroting the Bush Administration (and puppet Iraqi government) claim that (the REAL) "Saddam" has been sentenced and hanged - carefully ignoring the following contradictory facts...

• Saddam’s Wife (of 25 years), angrily said the Prisoner was NOT Saddam, but one of his doubles.

• Saddam’s Mistress said the Prisoner was NOT Saddam, but one of his doubles

• Saddam had even, pristine teeth; the Saddam double’s teeth were uneven and ragged

A litany of lies

A majority of American voters (and members of Congress) are now aware that President Bush and his cabal of (pro-Israel/anti-Iraq) NeoCon MISadvisors publicly LIED to falsely "justify" their (long pre-planned) war on Iraq...

• They LIED when they claimed Iraq possessed "Weapons of Mass Destruction."

• They LIED when they claimed Iraq had ties to Al Qaeda.

• They LIED when they "inferred" that Iraq and Saddam were DIRECTLY involved in the 2001 9/11 attacks. (Often more than just "inferred" by VP Cheney)

• According to a recent poll in Iraq, Cheney’s 9/11 lie is believed by a deceived majority of our misinformed troops in Iraq - who still falsely THINK our invasion and occupation is justified "REVENGE" for Iraq’s role in 9/11.

• They LIED about Iraqi civilian dead, pretending there were far less than the recent estimate of more than 655,000.

• And they may also be LYING - and hiding - how many American troops have actually died, more than the near 3,000 officially reported. Evidence has surfaced that OVER 10,000 Americans may have died...

• They LIED about WHERE and WHEN their hanged "Saddam" was captured.

With the preceding Bush lies in mind, why should we (and "gullible" news media) not suspect we are again being LIED to about (the REAL) "Saddam" being sentenced and hanged? Check out the following articles...

June 18, 2004 (excerpts)

"Sajida Heiralla Tuffah, after the Russians demanded she be allowed to visit her imprisoned husband Saddam in Qatar: ‘This is not my husband but his DOUBLE... You think I do not know my husband?’ Sajida shouted furiously, ‘I was married to the man for more than twenty-five years!’ Then she stormed off, never to return."

This remarkable confrontation was reported by Pravda and four other newspapers in the east between 13 and 17 April (2004), but The New York Times and others made damn sure you didn’t read or hear about it in the west.

Ex-mistress says it was a double

ABC News, March 21, 2003 (excerpts)

"Parisoula Lampsos, who says she was Saddam’s mistress over a period of nearly 30 years, told U.S. officials and ABC NEWS that the man who appeared on TV was not Saddam.

"’For starters,’ she said, ‘the real Saddam has an unusual tattoo: two dots on his left hand that he received in prison years ago. But his eyes are the real giveaway,’ she said."

Not Saddam’s teeth

(Many Photos)

When the "Saddam" double opened his mouth in court last year, his exposed ragged teeth and misshapen jaw bone, tipped off the (recently deceased) Australian Investigator JOE VIALLS (excerpts)

" dental service was free to all Iraqis, and President Hussein’s teeth were and are in pristine condition.

(The Saddam double) has ragged uneven teeth when compared to the even teeth of President Hussein...

Date trees and flies in the ointment: The U.S. "capture" of Saddam Hussein (excerpts)

"Iraqis are laughing about it. In the orchard around Saddam’s hideout, the dates are on the trees! Everyone in Iraq knows that dates are harvested in the hottest part of August. The dates on the trees and the color of the trees tell us the photos of Saddam’s hideout were taken in summer. This is late autumn."

(There are many photos of "Saddam" available on the web. Google "Saddam double" or go to

The many faces of Saddam Hussein, Dec. 6, 2005 (excerpts)

"But now, German scientists have established that the Saddam Hussein we see on TV is not the real Saddam Hussein. Saddam Hussein has at least three doubles.

Doubt regarding the capture of Saddam, Centre for Research on Globalization Dec. 22, 2003

CRG Editor: We present to our readers several key articles from both mainstream as well alternative news sources which cast doubt on the official story of Saddam Hussein’s capture. There are several holes in the official story, including the photographic evidence.

Text from Interview With John Loftus (excerpt)

MSNBC - July 25, 2003

According to John Loftus: "military intelligence is so convinced that he [Saddam] was killed on March 20. So, nobody has the body, so nobody’s confirming it. But everyone in—that I’ve talked to in Centcom and Special Operations Command are so certain that he’s dead that they’re not even bothering to look."
