Saddam Execution: More Staged Propaganda
Order out of chaos agenda continues in Iraq as Hussein video stokes sectarian violence and paves way for escalation of war

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.

Reuters today reported that Iraqi officials acknowledged that the execution chamber had been infiltrated by outsiders bent on inflaming sectarian tensions.

"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 was executed.

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 senior."

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 not 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 pilgrimage.

The four-day Feast of the Sacrifice began for Iraqi Sunnis on Saturday -- the day Saddam was hanged in Baghdad -- and on Sunday for Shiites.

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 term order 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 empowering extremists.

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 trial mountains 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 his aggression.

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 on Iraq.

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.
