Saddam Hussein to Hang for Crimes Against Iraqis



From the Washington Post:

Former Iraqi president Saddam Hussein was found guilty by a special tribunal Sunday of crimes against humanity for the torture and execution of more than 100 people from a small town north of Baghdad 24 years ago. He was sentenced to death by hanging.

Hussein, 69, was led into the courtroom by seven guards and immediately sat in his chair, refusing to rise for his verdict until Chief Judge Raouf Rasheed Abdel-Rahman ordered guards to force him to his feet...

The verdict and sentence will automatically be sent to a nine-judge appellate panel for appeal. That panel has wide latitude to review the case and call for additional testimony, and it has an unlimited time to rule. But once it does, any sentence must be carried out within 30 days.

Saddam Hussein is already dead.

The man sentenced to death by a Baghdad court on the 5th November 2006 for crimes against humanity is not Saddam Hussein.

The Former Iraqi President died in March 2003. He was badly injured in intelligence-led precision bombing by the Americans on Thursday 20th March 2003, and died later that day or very shortly afterwards.

The individual currently held by the Americans under the name of Saddam Hussein is a politically expedient lookalike. He is a cousin of Saddam and his body language is completely different from that of Saddam himself. British and American intelligence organisations know this. It is also common knowledge in the Tikrit locality of Iraq.

Benjamin Creme, the Editor-in Chief of Share International Magazine, has privileged access to this information from inside Iraq. He sent a press release about Saddam's death to media and government authorities on Tuesday 8th April 2003.
