What Happened To Saddam?

Wed Apr 07, 2004 3:56 am

Well they caught him but where is he now? He does not even get a mention on the news anymore.

If they are going to put him on trial surely they can't be making a case. There has been enough evidence around for years and he is guilty enough that there is no need to make up further charges.

Why the secrecy and is this an indication to what will happen to Bin Laden?

I have also heard that the reward money for Saddam was not paid out. Did the US renage on their promise? By the way, apart from kudos, did the troops who found him get anything out of it?

The reason why it wasn't paid out was that the informant was one of his bodyguards who spilled his beans while being interogated after being questioned. It wasn't voluntary information.

The problem is that nobody knows who is going to prosecute him, the US, UN or a new Iraqi government.

If some sort of legal Iraqi government emerges from the 1st July election plan, then it adds that option. But it seems more remote this week than it did last week.

The more years he sits more or less forgotten, the more he will be forgotten. And the less of a martyr he will be in certain circles.

The person Saddam Hussein isn't interesting any more. His fate has shown to any future would be despot that the world will catch up sooner or later. That's the main issue.

I'm wondering where he is being kept....On US soil? A base in Iraq? An aircraft carrier? It would be interesting to know.

Last I heard he was being held in Baghdad. That was some time ago, I would think that he would be staying in Iraq.

I think Bush will release Saddam so he can catch him again so his approval rating to go up again.

This may happen in October just before all the absente ballots are mailed out.

Probably a kick  Smile

Seriously though, not long ago tv channels (e.g. CNN) reported Saddam was being held in Iraq where the Red Cross visited him. The Red Cross were not allowed to release any information about the visit.

Regarding a fair trial, whoever does it will need plenty of time to prepare it precisely because of the huge amount of evidence there is against him. It all has to be well documented otherwise defense lawyers can find loopholes. That's why the Milosovic trial is taking so long, also the Dutroux trial in Belgium.
