- Hi Jeff...
- It is my believe that Saddam was not captured.
- He was rescued by his principals because his life was
in danger. The U.S. kept to its obligations and honored this part of their
- Everybody knows that Saddam was a U.S. creation from
his start back in the '70s, from the time he was in Egypt. He was created
to fill the power spot and contain Iran, but later on got loose making
his oil unacessible to U.S. So he had to be disciplined by Bush I and the
food for oil drill.
- Few days ago, it become clear that Russians knew about
the buying out of Saddam's staff by U.S. prior to invasion. (Patrick Dillon's
September 8, 2003 interview with Jeff in which he detailed his
- face- to-face videotaped meeting with an Iraqi officer
who watched about a dozen Mercedes drive out on to the Baghdad airport
runway and directly up and into US military transport planes - ed)
- Saddam did nothing about it, meaning that he already
was not in charge. The resulting disruption of Iraqi command structure
was heavy so U.S. just walked into Baghdad and democratized the local oil.
- Then it become clear that not everybody was happy with
this solution and resistance emerged. As it kept getting stronger, it become
apparent that it is a genuine resistance, not burdened by Saddam's legacy,
and that, sooner or later, local traitors will turn on him. God knows that
even without this, Saddam was not a particularly beloved leader. Even his
wife allegedly helped in the search.
- So, Saddam had to be transferred to more secure place
that has as low media potential as possible.
- A court in Hague would be such place.
- It is secure, and the fact that it is full of similar
characters that are, because of the legal proceedings that last for years
resolving nothing, of no interest to public any more, such as Milosevich,
it is probable that he also will soon become forgotten to.
