Saddam Photo II

Here is a better version of the Saddam photo. Notice how the left hand of the soldier is straining against Saddam's coat to hold him up, and the right hand is supporting Saddam's head. Notice the la-la land expression on Saddam's face - he is higher than a kite. That means that the whole story about Saddam's capture, including his being in a 'spider hole' and having a gun he didn't use is almost certainly another Pentagon lie. If Saddam was in a hole it was because the Kurds stuffed him there, and he certainly was in no condition to use a gun. Also notice that this trophy photo is an enormous breach of the Geneva Conventions regarding treatment of prisoners of war.
