  • Flashback: US releases photos of Saddam sons

    UK Guardian ^ | 24 July 2003
    Photographs of Saddam Hussein's feared sons laid out in plastic body bags were released by the US today in a bid to convince sceptical Iraqis that neither would follow their father into power. The pictures, taken after Uday and Qusay Saddm Hussein's bodies were removed from a house in Mosul on Tuesday, show the heads and torsos of the two. Uday was clearly recognisable, despite having a thick beard and a wound that had destroyed part of his nose and upper lip. He appeared to have been killed by a bullet in the head, but it was not known whether...
  • March 2003 Document: Saddam Orders Iraq Central Bank to Give his Son 1 Billion Dollars (Translation)

    09/07/2006 7:42:11 AM PDT · by jveritas · 47 replies · 6,524+ views
    Document dated March/19/2003 is hand written order from Saddam Hussein to the governor of Iraq Central Bank to give his son Qusay Saddam Hussein and another crony named Hikmat Mazban Ibrahim a total of ONE Billion Dollars so it will be protected from what he called the “American Aggression”. Of course this money was meant to be smuggled to some foreign secret bank accounts for Saddam family. This money was found by the US troops shortly after the fall of Saddam regime and handed later on to the free Iraqi government. Translation of Top Secret In the name...

    Former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein’s sons, Qusay and Uday Hussein, are killed after a three-hour firefight with U.S. forces in the northern Iraqi city of Mosul. It is widely believed that the two men were even more cruel and ruthless than their notorious father, and their death was celebrated among many Iraqis. Uday and Qusay were 39 and 37 years old, respectively, when they died. Both are said to have amassed considerable fortunes through their participation in illegal oil smuggling.

    WHEN THE IRAQI REGIME collapsed in April 2003, few observers saw reason to mourn the loss of Saddam's brutal dictatorship. While a great deal of information about the former Iraqi regime's assorted atrocities has been uncovered since the invasion, newly-released documents go even further in demonstrating its manifest depravity. One such document is CMPC-2003-012666, a letter from Qusay Hussein that directs as follows: Transfer all Kuwaiti POW's / a total of 448 captured Kuwaitis who are located at the Al-Nida Al-Agher Prison and the Intelligence / General Center and Kazema Prison in Al-Kazema, to make them human shields at all...

    Saddam Hussein ordered Iraq's central bank to withdraw $1 billion for his youngest son the day before the invasion to stop it falling into foreign hands, according to a leaked letter apparently written by the former dictator. In a hand-written note to the bank's governor, marked "top secret" and dated March 19, 2003, the former president told Isam Huwaish to give $920 million and 90 million euros to his son Qusay and another man, al-Mashriq newspaper reported yesterday. The Iraqi national broadsheet reproduced the letter, which appears to bear Saddam's signature. Saddam sent bank a hand-written note Employees of the...

    Kofi Annan had what perhaps was the quote of the week recently. In an editorial displayed in The Washington Post, Annan said of Iraq: “In a media-hungry age, visibility is often regarded as proof of success, but this does not necessarily hold true in Iraq.” Most of Iraq’s successes have been away from the camera. They have been too far away for most Americans to see. President Bush has stated that “successes” abound in Iraq, but he has failed to elaborate. Therefore, I followed Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi’s advice and searched for the real facts about Iraq. We do see...

Reaction was fascinating in both its scope and its idiocy.

    MOSUL is the good girl who went bad. Quiet in the early days of the occupation, the violence-ravaged Iraqi city has become a must-win battlefield for our enemies. The terrorists and insurgents will throw all they have left into the fight. There's no mystery involved: Mosul's the decisive point in northern Iraq. Over the long term, the city's vastly more valuable than Fallujah. Insurgent attacks, terrorist bombings and assassinations erupted last autumn and continue on a regular basis. They're not going to stop soon. After Baghdad, Mosul will remain the most bitterly contested Iraqi city in the months ahead. Every...

    As news of Uday and Qusay Hussein's most welcome demise was breaking across the globe, Iraqis lit the skies with celebratory fire, financial markets surged, oil prices dipped, and men and women of goodwill exulted in the apparent success, soon confirmed, of American forces who had rid the world of the monstrous brothers long instrumental in maintaining Saddam Hussein's Iraq as a rogue police state of domestic torture and international menace. But what did the Democrats do?There was presidential hopeful Richard Gephardt, giving a gee-whiz-bang foreign policy speech in San Francisco ("the incubator of internationalism," as he put it) about...

    Lessons From the Killing of Uday and Qusay Amr Mohammed Al-Faisal Last week, US forces surrounded and killed the sons of president Saddam Hussein. I have never been a supporter of Saddam Hussein or his regime. Nor do I wish them well today. However, the way that Uday and Qusay were killed needs to be examined carefully so as to derive useful lessons. Let me briefly recap the events that led to their death. US forces, based on a tip-off from a friend of the Hussein family (in return for a $30 million reward), surrounded a house in Mosul in...

    Two of the most malignant and cruel mass murderers, rapists and torturers to ever walk the Earth have departed the planet — and the Left sneers. There was a time — I can remember it clearly, though it seems a lifetime ago — when “liberals” were people who fought for humanity and human rights, people who despised murder and torture. Now, wherever we look, the people who call themselves the most “liberal” seem to be the sole remaining defenders of murder, rape, and torture. What the hell has happened to those people? I was very happy today when I heard...

    Saddam Hussein is believed to have been with his two sons Uday and Qusay moments before the U.S. attacked and killed them in their safe house in Mosul, Iraq last Tuesday. According to intelligence sources cited by the London Sunday Times, a single satellite signal from a phone known to belong to Saddam was picked up during the bombardment of the building where the Hussein sons were hiding out. Soldiers from the 101st Airborne searched a nearby villa which had been pinpointed as the source of the satellite signal but the Iraqi dictator had apparently already fled. Citing U.S. military...

    The Coalition Provisional Authority in Iraq says a decision on the burial of the sons of deposed Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein, Uday and Qusay, will be announced within the next 24 hours. The Coalition Provisional Authority says it will announce the final steps involved in burying Saddam Hussein's sons Monday. U.S. troops killed the two Tuesday in a firefight in the northern city of Mosul. A coalition spokesman, who asked not to be named, said it had to carry out a number of procedures before the bodies could be buried. Traditionally, Middle Eastern burial practices require that interment take place...

    <p>WASHINGTON — With the war effort in Iraq bearing fresh fruit, some campaign experts say Democrats may want to do themselves a favor and tone down the harsh criticism of President Bush.</p> <p>"I think [the news of Uday's and Qusay's deaths] helps. I think it's moving in the right direction," said Fox News political analyst Al D'Amato (search). "I think that it dispels the rumors that we are doing nothing in Iraq, and [indicates] that we will eventually capture or kill Saddam."</p>

    In his famous short story "The Things They Carried," writer Tim O'Brien shows that you can learn a great deal about men by what they take into battle. IN THE CASE OF the platoon he described slogging through the rice fields in 'Nam, those items included love letters from home, grenades and land mines, lucky charms, insecticide, copies of Stars and Stripes, fingernail clippers, bags of marijuana, bandages, psyop leaflets and tanning lotion. "Often," O'Brien writes, "they carried each other, the wounded and the weak." And what did Uday Hussein carry to the fight? After a hot and noisy siege...
