Saddam's little sleep

What's wrong with this picture? Well, for one thing, after being forcibly dragged out of a hole almost too small for him to fit through, Saddam is sound asleep! In fact, the soldier has to hold him up off the ground by partly turning his body in order to show off his trophy. Saddam is having a nice little sleep - note the smile on his face - as a result of the drugs the Kurds gave him before they put him in the hole so the Americans could have a safe fake capture. It may be that the delay that was ascribed to a suspiciously quick DNA test was really a delay to get him sobered up enough so he could perform for the cameras and be demeaned as a token of American power.
