Saddam 'beaten up after obscenity'
Telegraph ^ | November 16 2005

Posted on 11/16/2005 9:59:35 AM PST by jmc1969

Saddam Hussein was beaten up during questioning after he made an obscene remark about Shia Muslims, a source close to the investigation has claimed.

The former dictator is being questioned by investigative judges before his trial resumes on November 28.

An Iraqi lawyer briefed by investigative judges in the Iraqi High Tribunal said Saddam had made the obscene remark when asked about attacks by Iraqi forces on the shrines of imams Hussein and Abbas in Karbala in 1991.

Two of the court's clerks stopped taking notes and attacked Saddam, pummeling him with blows.

The source claimed Saddam's American guards were amused by the incident and did not intervene.

Yeah, but did they hurt him?

If not, they didn't get the job done. Repeat first down.

I'm sure the guards considered how to attempt to negotiate a nonviolent solution with the attackers.

They'd need a UN resolution for that.

Well of course not, they're not stupid, they knew how much trouble they would have got into if they would have handed their weapons to the clerks.

Maybe he was, and maybe he wasn't.

But if he was I cry no tears for a mass butcher being blooddied a bit.

I leave tears for the U.S. Congress.

Saddam: "How many Shia does it take to screw in a light bulb?"
Interogator: "I don't know."
Saddam: "All of them - but wait - I gassed them."
Interrogator: "Why you!"
Saddam: "Stay back or you will get Tiger Hand."

This reminds me of the time when he was dicovered cowering in his spider hole. He started ranting and raving to one of the servicemem and the good soldier knocked him senseless with his rifle butt. Became as meek as a lamb after that.

"They're doing their darnest to get the trial moved out of Iraq, ain't they?"

i think you are correct.
They want the trial in the Hague (Holland),where Carla De Ponte and other lefties can find him NOT GUILTY.

MILOSEVIC, who defended his people against muslims, is in the Hague where Carla De Ponte and her minions can't wait to have him jailed for life.
