Evidence has emerged that the execution of Saddam
Hussein was purposefully allowed to descend into chaos as senior
American and Iraqi officials carefully staged managed a situation
whereby Shi'ite militias were able to infiltrate the chamber and
actually carry out the deed themselves.
reported that Iraqi officials acknowledged that the
execution chamber had been infiltrated by outsiders bent on inflaming
"Whoever leaked this video meant to harm national
reconciliation and drive a wedge between Shi'ites and Sunnis,"
said National Security Adviser Mowaffaq al-Rubaie, one of a group
of 20 officials and other witnesses who were present at the execution
at dawn on Saturday.
"The execution was carried out by militias and outsiders.
They put aside the team from the Interior Ministry that was supposed
to carry it out," another Iraqi official said.
US officials have said that they had nothing to
do with the execution or the videoing of it which has sparked
international condemnation. Saddam was handed over at the facility
by U.S. troops who then immediately left the building before Saddam
How incredibly convenient. Does it not seem a little bit strange
that after capturing and holding Saddam prisoner for over three
years, strictly overseeing his trial, that he would just be handed
over by American officials who then did not even bother to stay
and witness the execution?
According to deputy chief prosecutor Munqid
al- Farun, only two of those present at the execution
had mobile phones - national security advisor Muwafak al-Rubaie,
and a second government representative. Both were said to have
taken pictures. Farun claimed that the cell phone video was captured
by these senior government officials, not secretly by guards or
witnesses as has been claimed by the government.
Al-Farun said he had threatened
to leave the room if order was not restored, which
would have halted the execution, as a prosecution observer must
be present by law.
"Two officials were holding mobile phone cameras,"
said Farun, who was a deputy prosecutor in the Saddam case and
is chief prosecutor in a second trial that will continue against
his aides for genocide against the Kurds.
"One of them I know. He's a high-ranking government official.
The other I also know by sight, though not his name. He is also
Telling how U.S. troops searched the official delegation to the
hanging before they were allowed on to the gallows, he said: "I
don't know how they got their mobiles in because the Americans
took all our phones - even mine which has no camera."
The Iraqi government has arrested two guards and
an official who supervised the execution for making the mobile-phone
video that has stirred so much controversy.

The New York-based International Action Center,
led by former US attorney general Ramsey Clark, one of the former
dictator's defence lawyers said the hanging was part
of a plan to escalate the war. Clark had predicted
during the Iraqi leader's trial that a bloodbath would follow
if he was executed. In a statement, the center said:
"The execution of Saddam Hussein is a clear sign that the
Bush administration is looking not to negotiate a way for the
US to leave Iraq, but is instead sending a signal that it will
continue the war and escalate it despite the impending disaster,".
Both President Bush and Prime Minister Tony Blair
have remained distanced from the execution, Bush saying he has
seen the video and Blair
failing to even make a formal statement on it much
to the anger of several MPs within his own party.
Former NBC News anchor Tom
Brokaw was on the money when he commented that it
was “difficult to imagine” how the execution of Saddam
Hussein “could have turned out worse.”
“[W]e portray ourselves around the world as the champions
of democracy and the rule of law,” Brokaw said, yet Hussein’s
execution “resembled the worst kind of nightmare out of
the old American West.” As a result, Hussein, who “had
disappeared, in effect, as some kind of a symbol over there, suddenly
becomes a martyr.”
Patrick Cockburn today wrote in the Independent that "It
takes real genius to create a martyr out of Saddam Hussein."
and that Bush and Blair's choices have led to disaster in Iraq,
culminating in a chaotic execution that is fueling civil war.
Meanwhile, according to an Angus
Reid Poll, 90% of Iraqis believe that they were better
off under Saddam than they are now without him.
British MP George Galloway echoed
the sentiment that Saddam has been intentionally
made a martyr, highlighting how much of a staged managed joke
the trial leading up the final execution had been:
"Nothing became the Saddam Hussein era like
his leaving of the stage. If he had died the day he was dug up
from a hole, the collective memory of the Arabs — the only
audience that ever mattered to him — would have been different.
Instead, they will recall his astonishing sangfroid before a kangaroo
court. The first judge resigned in protest at American interference.
The second one was sacked by the US-installed puppet regime for
refusing to obey orders." Galloway writes.
Indeed, the first chief judge, Rizkar Mohammed Amin,
has said that the late dictator's execution by the Iraqi government
was illegal. Amin said Iraqi law banned executions during the
Eid al-Adha festival period that marks the end of the annual Hajj
The four-day Feast of the Sacrifice began for Iraqi Sunnis on
Saturday -- the day Saddam was hanged in Baghdad -- and on Sunday
Amin also claimed that Iraqi law stipulates an execution must
be carried out 30 days after the appeal court's decision on the
sentencing, which in this case upheld the death sentence of Saddam.
Some have intimated that the execution has thus been seen by
Shia's as a welcome sacrifice on one of the Holiest days of Islam,
and was carefully staged managed as a deliberate act meant to
create a backlash amongst Muslims and foment a Shia-Sunni conflict
in the Muslim world.
No Iraqi officials have been able to explain why Prime Minister
Nuri Kamal al-Maliki bypassed constitutional and religious precepts
and had been unwilling to allow the execution to wait. Nor would
any explain why those who conducted it had allowed it to deteriorate
into a sectarian free-for-all that had the effect, on the video
recordings, of making Hussein, a mass murderer, appear dignified
and restrained, and his executioners, representing Shiites who
were his principal victims, seem like bullying street thugs.
Why would Iraqi officials who are truly seeking stability and
an end to sectarian conflict want this to happen?
Qui Bono? Bush wants to send another 30,000 troops into Iraq,
the al-Maliki government are total puppets to a man that have
been installed purely to carry out orders of the Neoconservative
elite, who are also in bed with the oil plundering Saudi royals
and the Zionist Israeli oligarchy who have long sought Balkanization
of the middle east. In 1982, Oded Yinon, an official from the
Israeli Foreign Affairs office, wrote: "To dissolve Iraq
is even more important for us than dissolving Syria. In the short
term, it's Iraqi power that constitutes the greatest threat to
Israel. The Iran-Iraq war tore Iraq apart and provoked its downfall.
All manner of inter-Arab conflict help us and accelerate our goal
of breaking up Iraq into small, diverse pieces."
We have also previously highlighted other facets of the long
out of chaos agenda to stoke civil war in Iraq and
the middle east, such as the 'Salvador
Option'. Top analysts in the CIA and State Department,
as well as large numbers of Middle East experts, knew that a U.S.
invasion of Iraq would result in a violent ethnic and sectarian
conflict. The war's intellectual architects even acknowledged
as much: In a 1997 paper, prior to becoming major figures in the
Bush foreign policy team, David Wurmser, Richard Perle, and Douglas
Feith predicted that a post-Saddam Iraq would likely be "ripped
apart" by sectarianism and other cleavages but called on
the United States to "expedite" such a collapse anyway."
Throughout history we see the tactic of divide
and conquer being used to enslave populations and
swallow formerly sovereign countries by piecemeal. From the British
stirring up aggression between different Indian tribes in order
to foment division, to modern day Yugoslavia where the country
was rejecting the IMF and world bank takeover before the Globalists
broke it up and took the country piece by piece by arming and
And why shouldn't we suspect the Saddam execution
to be another piece of stage managed propaganda within this agenda?
The announcement of the verdict on Saddam sentencing him to death
was conveniently switched last year to 5 November, the last daily
news cycle before the US mid-term elections.
The US largely orchestrated the entire trial from
behind the scenes because it was clear that if it became a real
of evidence would have poured forth detailing how
criminal elements within the US government brought Saddam to power,
maintained him in office, underwrote his tyranny, and rewarded
Everything about Saddam has been staged managed,
he was a puppet from the very start, beginning with the CIA's
assistance in not one but two coups that first brought the Baath
Party to power then cemented the hold of Saddam's internal faction
The Western elite have played him like a fiddle
ever since, right through to the "spider hole" capture
three years ago, which was later admitted to be totally
staged for propaganda purposes, his kangaroo court
trial and his do-it-yourself style execution.
