Saddam in his pants!

BTW, The Sun is not showing the pictures online!

The Sun is under fire over Saddam pictures:
The US military has condemned the Sun for publishing photographs of a captive Saddam Hussein and said it was "aggressively" investigating who took them.

Today's paper carries a series of photographs showing the former Iraqi dictator in his cell, including one on the front page showing him in his underwear. Another shows him washing clothes under the headline "Tyrant? He's washed up".

The Sun says it obtained the photos from "US military sources" who handed them over "in the hope of dealing a body blow to the resistance in Iraq".

"Saddam is not superman or God, he is now just an ageing and humble old man," the paper quotes its source as saying. "It's important that the people of Iraq see him like that to destroy the myth."

But in a statement issued today, the American military in Baghdad said the photos violated military guidelines "and possibly Geneva convention guidelines for the humane treatment of detained individuals".

"The source of those photos is unknown at this time. It is believed the photos were taken over a year ago."

Okay, maybe it's a violation of Geneva convention; but I know that I am happy to see these pictures, aren't you? Don't you like to see Saddam washing his clothes? I know I do, and I also know that most Iraqis do too.

After all the suffering he put us through, now he is living how he should've lived all his life, in prison washing and cleaning, not only his clothes but also the floors and the toilets of the prison. Man, I will never get enough of seeing him humiliated, suffering and treated like he should've been treated all his life, like an animal. I mean didn't you like the picture of Samir holding Saddam, after punching him? I love that picture!

I know you will say that I am evil and two wrongs don't make a right; but, first, I am just a human who want to see justice and can't say that I don't want vengeance. Second, I do not consider him human; therefore, I don't think he deserves any right. And third, nothing in the world that can be done to him could be compared to what he had done to millions of innocents.

I am getting a lot of SMS messages today asking me if I saw the Sun's front page! I know that Iraqis are loving it. I will certainly keep a copy of the Sun. By the way, I will try to scan some of the pictures and upload them later, probably tomorrow.

I LOVE this photo. Thank you for making my day. How can Iraqis get enough from this photo?

It can be used for a hand washing ad :-)

Now, if only they'd release pictures of him being held on a leash by an American female.

I just don't see this causing a huge backlash except by the media. I don't see many Iraqi people being upset by seeing this.

I heard Saddam has air conditioning. Now THAT is a REAL body blow, to me!

My first thought on hearing about this is Iraqis would have a good laugh. The msm, on the other hand in its infinite wisdom, is screaming backlash, another body blow to the US and Arab relations, blah, blah, blah. I also heard on the radio this AM by some dumb ass that even though "he wasn't a great leader, he is still the former leader of a country and shouldn't be humiliated like this". I was speechless. How the **ck can anyone make such a statement knowing what that swine has done to the Iraqi people? I guess unless you’ve actually lived in constant fear for your life and the lives of your family, you just don’t understand true evil.

Did anyone see this?

"The photos in The Sun, one of which shows Saddam wearing only his underpants, are a "violation of human rights and in contravention of the Geneva Convention" on treatment of prisoners, Ziad Khassawneh was quoted by Al-Jazeera television as saying."

Another quote directly from Al-Jazeera:

"Al-Jazeera spokesman Jihad Ballout said the network didn't show them for ethical and professional reasons. "The photo is demeaning to Iraqis," he said, adding: "from a professional side, it is not news."

"There is a big difference, because the pictures were the news in Abu Ghraib," he said.

Can you believe that????

Osama's idea is very cool. All we need is a good server to handle the too many hits to the site.

While I truly understand your feelings about these pictures, (and really don't care about any humiliation of saddam), the fact that the media continues to release these photo's when it is a violation of the geneva convention is plain wrong. In the end, it is always the U.S. who is thrashed.

Those who took the pictures were wrong and publishing them only encourages further abuse...and further's the cause for those who want blame America for all of the wrongs in our world.

Ahmad, I loved the picture, too--so much better than the ones we used to see of that pig smoking a cigar and shooting off his gun in full military attire with fake medals!

The Iraqi people deserve to live to see the day that Saddam gets the justice he never gave anyone when he was "king" and what life is like in a democratic state under the rule of law and not the whim of a tyrant!

loved seeing this picture (although it wasn't very pretty to look at)...had to post it in my blog too!

and strykeraunt: I too don't get why the U.S. always gets thrashed, I mean these pictures were published by a BRITISH tabloid...its true it is probably U.S. soldiers who took these pictures, but still it is not the U.S. fault that they got published!

I got it! I got it! I got it! Of course it was the US's fault.

I was just watching the news on MSNBC about it. First of all, MSNBC interviewed an Arab from somewhere other than Iraq and, of course, he predicted that Iraqis and other Arabs would be outraged and offended at this treatment of their former president.

Next they showed a clip of an official from the new Iraqi government saying that they (Iraqis) are governed by the law and this is a breach of the Geneva convention so it must be investigate.

Ergo, this is what this American orchestrated conspiracy is all about:

Those sneaky Americans first wanted to prove the oh-so-typical but oh-so-scripted opinions offered by Arab man-on-the-street interviewee are wrong (a major coup in the current crop psych ops that are making the rounds) and, second, they wanted to show that the Iraqi government is starting off on the right foot. Brilliant strategy, brilliantly executed.

And to top it all off, most sane people are really, really happy that SH has had is whitie tighties flashed all around the globe.

Now they're reporting that All Jeers and Snears (Al Jazeera) has stated they will not publish the pictures because it would be unethical!!!!!


They found ethics!!! ROTFLMAO!!!!

LOL. That's really funny from Al-Jazeera. Yes, it's all about ethics for them. Just like them showing the terrorists chopping off Nick Berg's head.

My thoughts and prayers are always with you Iraqi people. 3 pictures stand out in my mind: The big statue coming down, saddam pulled from his hole in the ground like a filthy rat and now this picture of the monster in a cage wearing his underwear. HA! HA! HA!

Good comments everyone.

Thanks Ahmad for the picture and your great post.
I had been looking for this picture.
True, Saddam looks more like an ordinary man than the powerful and terrifying tyrant he use to be.
He is lucky to enjoy more rights in jail, than any of 25 some million Iraqis when he was in power.

Al Jaz is hilarious as usually!!
Good for you Louise and foxandhound.Thx.
