LONDON A Web site catering to active and retired U.S. military personnel has published a picture apparently showing Saddam Hussein at the moment he was dragged out of his below-ground hiding place Dec. 14 in Iraq.

The photo, which military authorities believe to be genuine, could help to puncture conspiracy theories in the Arab world questioning the U.S. account of Saddam's capture.

I'm hoping someone, at some point, "accidentally" kicked him in the head a time or two. Or a dozen or two.

This isn't near enough humiliation for the old bastard to suit me. But it's a decent start.

in London, a Arab newspaper editor, Adel Bari Atwan, condemned the photo's release.

"Assuming it is genuine, it's deeply humiliating to show Saddam in this way, and will lead to a bad anti-American reaction in the Arab street," he told Independent Television.

And what would lead to a good anti-American reaction in the Arab street...?

Does the spectre of the 'Arab Street' cause anyone else here to chuckle? Puhleese!

You mean as opposed to the warm closeness they normally feel to us?

Screw 'em.

What will they do to overcome their "humiliation?" Probably another sneak attack somewhere, against children and women.

In their twisted religion and cultures, that is the best display of their machismo that they can muster.

Let the puny phuques remain humiliated.

And I should care about what these primitive screwheads think?!? I think not. (this also includes all the more "civilized" primitive screwheads (france, germany, etc.) that didn't want us to enforce the UN resolutions they voted for)

"And I should care about what these primitive screwheads think?!?"

One of the weaknesses of those who support terror: its silly to warn about the consequences of angering them b/c they're already engaging in the worst possible behavior.

What? Don't offend the Arabs or they might...what?...fly jumbo jets into the WTC and kill thousands of innocents.

If we played by their rules, any "humiliation" of US interests would result in Mecca & Medina being turned into valleys of glass.

I just love that picture! I hope it's blown up and mounted in thousands of US military offices. "Fresh Kill"

I hope you like the book!
