Wait ‘till the ACLU hears about this. Not to mention the UN.
Pulling out of Iraq? Didn’t we pretend to do this last year? Maybe O will get a bounce from it this time....if not, we can always pull out again.
Can’t they be tried in New York City first? It would be good for tourism./s
This article is useless without the litany of crimes these two half brothers committed.
Sab’awi Ibrahim Hasan al-Tikriti
Saddam’s half brother. Former Director of Intelligence and the General Security Directorate.
“[The prisoner] was taken to the basketball post by two guards who had to practically carry him because he was unable to walk...They tied him to the post. SAB’AWI IBRAHIM said something to [the prisoner] and [the prisoner] started shouting, pleading for his life. I heard [the prisoner] saying something like: “I am the only one to look after my family - have mercy on me for the sake of my children”. SAB’AWI IBRAHIM...shot him twice in the chest with an automatic pistol from a range of about 2 metres...Two of the bodyguards then shot him again with their machine guns at close range, cutting him to pieces...I saw that the body stayed in the yard until 10pm. Then two guards put the body in a rubbish bin mounted on a trolley.”
“SAB’AWI IBRAHIM said to him angrily that he was a Kuwaiti spy. The prisoner denied this. SAB’AWI IBRAHIM punched him twice in the face. He opened a filing cabinet and brought out a butcher’s axe. He struck the man with it on the right shoulder. The man fell to the floor bleeding. The prison guards picked him up. SAB’AWI IBRAHIM hit the man twice on the forehead with the blade of the axe and the man died immediately. SAB’AWI IBRAHIM had been sidelined by SADDAM HUSSEIN for incompetence in looking for Kuwaiti spies...he was trying to regain favour by exposing, or even pretending, that there was a Kuwaiti spy network in place.”
“He hit me and asked me “Do you know who I am?” in a whisper. I replied that I knew that he was SAB’AWI IBRAHIM. He said then that if I knew him, I knew what he was capable of. He threatened to remove the name [X] from existence by which I understood he was threatening to kill all my family...I was hung from the ceiling by my feet...There were people on each side beating me. I fainted. Water was splashed on my face to revive me and then I was beaten again. I finally lost consciousness and when I woke I was attached to a device that looked like it was cardiograph machine. I had lost all feeling in my arms and legs. The doctors suggested I may have suffered from some form of brain haemorrhage.”
Watban Ibrahim Hasan al-Tikriti
Saddam’s half brother. Former Minister of Interior and Advisor to the President.
“[The prisoners alleged crime was that] he had driven through a red traffic light...WATBAN IBRAHIM AL-HASSAN...was holding a wooden club with a round head which is covered in tar (a traditional tribal weapon)...the man was made to crouch down into a painful position in front of the other prisoners. WATBAN IBRAHIM AL-HASSAN began to strike the man who screamed and begged for him to stop until he fell down on the ground...WATBAN IBRAHIM AL HASSAN then stood close to the man on the ground and with the great violence hit him approximately ten more times from the side until his face and skull was smashed to pulp...WATBAN IBRAHIM AL-HASSAN then shouted so that every one including the other prisoners could hear words to the effect of ‘take away this dog’.”
