    MSNBC anchor Chris Matthews compared President Donald Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner and daughter Ivanka Trump to former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein's kids on Monday night. "Let me just say, you know, we kid," Matthews said. "I kid about everything, but Uday and Qusay working for Saddam Hussein – you couldn’t go to a restaurant and have eye contact with those guys without getting killed. These people are really powerful. Imagine getting into a fight in the office with Jared or Ivanka, they have enormous power, and they’re always gonna be there." Politico reporter Annie Karni responded that this is what...

    American Thinker ^ | December 26,2016 | James Lewis
    Apparently Kevin Williamson at National Review has jumped over that deadly lemming cliff, along with millions of Trump-maddened New York liberals. Williamson writes in NR today that "My own view is that Donald and Ivanka and Uday and Qusay are genuinely bad human beings and that the American public has made a grave error in entrusting its highest office to this cast of American Psycho extras. That a major political party was captured by these cretins suggests that its members are not worthy of the blessings of this republic ..." ​Apparently NR editors didn't read this piece, or worse, they...
  • Al-Afari And Away: Ignoring the Saddam-ISIS link

    The Shinbone: The Frontier of the Free Press ^ | March 22, 2016 | Daniel Clark
    Al-Afari And Away: Ignoring the Saddam-ISIS link by Daniel Clark During two Republican primary debates, presidential frontrunner Donald Trump claimed that Saddam Hussein had been an enemy of Islamic terrorism, and argued that he should have been left in power to kill terrorists, so that our soldiers didn't have to. Considering that, one might think a reminder of Saddam's moustache-deep involvement in terrorism, along with the fact that he'd retained an active chemical weapons program between wars, would be a major news story. One might even expect that a story about a former member of Saddam’s regime helping ISIS to...
  • 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...

Photo by Staff Sgt. Tim Beckham, Baghdad Media Outreach Team. BAGHDAD — It has been said that those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.

They are burying the past to rebuild a new future.The past, in this case, are three villas located here in...

    Times of London ^ | Sunday, March 23, 2008 | FOX News
    Saddam Hussein's son Uday planned to carry out an attack in London to assassinate the leader of an Iraqi opposition group in April 2000, it is being reported. According to the U.K.'s Times of London newspaper, a new Pentagon study based on documents seized during the Iraq war reveal an aborted plot by Uday Hussein's elite paramilitary group — the Fedayeen — to kill London-based Ahmed Chalabi, head of the Iraqi National Congress. Documents show that Fedayeen's orders were to carry out assassinations and bombings in London, the Times reported. While the study showed no link between Saddam Hussein's regime...

    As president of Iraq's Olympic committee, the president's son was the country's sports czar. According to several accounts from players, he turned his sadistic obsessions on the national soccer team. -Snip- But those were the lesser miseries. Some players endured long periods in a military prison, beaten on their backs with electric cables until blood flowed. Other punishments included "matches" kicking concrete balls around the prison yard in 130-degree heat, and 12-hour sessions of push-ups, sprints and other fitness drills, wearing heavy military fatigues and boots.

    Peace upon those who believe in peace and desire it, and the mercy of God and His blessings. I address you in this letter from the place of my confinement, as my attempt on the basis of my moral, human, and constitutional responsibility so that no one among you might say that no one came to us with a message of peace after the war began, refuting the arguments for it and desiring peace for you and for our upright, loyal, heroic people. And as I say this, I do no know whether my brothers and comrades who are leading...

    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.

    CELEB Big Brother prat George Galloway is today exposed in his revolting true colours — fawning before Saddam Hussein’s murderous son Uday. An astonishing video shown in part on the Sun TV Bulletin depicts Galloway, 51, laughing and joking with the evil psychopath during a 20-minute meeting in an Iraqi palace. The Respect party MP, who Sun readers can boot off the Channel 4 show tonight, has sickened viewers with his antics in the BB house. Galloway’s crawling around the tyrannical old Iraqi regime was even more disgusting. He famously met dictator Saddam in 1994 and told him: “Sir, allow...

    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...

    If last week’s Daily Telegraph article by Samantha Grice is anything to go by, this summer’s must-read is not a piece of pulp fiction one can happily devour on a sun-drenched beach. Rather, it’s a disturbing true-life portrait of a vain and superstitious psychopath—a book that will likely leave you chilled and upset, rather than amused or titillated. But by all accounts, it is a must-read just the same. For two decades, Iraqi Dr. Ala Bashir served (through no choice of his own, he says) as plastic surgeon to then-dictator Saddam Hussein and his family. During that time, Dr. Bashir...

    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...

    President Bush appealed to the nation to stay the course in Iraq on Tuesday in a nationally televised speech that was nationally televised only when the Big Three Networks made a last minute decision to carry his comments live. Reaction was fascinating in both its scope and its idiocy. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi immediately accused the president of "exploiting 9-11" which, she informed the nation, had nothing to do with the war in Iraq. According to Rep. Pelosi (who is actually allowed to participate in making important homeland security decisions) "The president's frequent references to the terrorist attacks of...

    On January 6, 2005, the U.S.-funded Arabic satellite network Al Hurra broadcast an explosive exposé detailing the financial links between Saddam Hussein's regime and the Arab press. Al Hurra's documentary--so far overlooked in the West--aired previously unseen video footage, recorded by Saddam Hussein's regime during its murderous heyday, of Saddam's son Uday meeting with several Arab media figures and referring to the bribes they had received.Recipients of this Baathist largesse appeared to include a former managing director of the influential Qatar-based government-subsidized satellite network Al Jazeera, Mohammed Jassem al-Ali. The videotaped meeting between Uday and al-Ali occurred on March 13,...
