US disinformation hoax: Saddam Hussein's execution was a fake

The man hung in Baghdad on the 30th December 2006 for crimes against humanity was not Saddam Hussein. The Former Iraqi President died in March 2003. He was badly injured in intelligence-led precision bombing by the Americans on Thursday 20th March 2003, and died later that day or very shortly afterwards.

The individual who was held by the Americans for three years under the name of Saddam Hussein was a politically expedient lookalike. He was a cousin of Saddam and his body language was recognisably different from that of Saddam himself. British and American intelligence organisations knew this. It was also common knowledge in the Tikrit locality of northern Iraq where the remains of the real Saddam were quietly buried in 2003.

The lookalike was first seen on Iraqi television on the 4th April 2003. He was filmed by an Iraqi disinformation team. The footage showed him picking up a child and laughing and waving to invited crowds in a safe area of Baghdad. Apart from his different body language, the end of the lookalike's nose was much broader than that of Saddam and he had moles on his temple and forehead, unlike Saddam. This physiognomy was identical to that of the captured person who the Americans were trying to pass off as Saddam. In April 2003, Western media commentators openly questioned the identity of this man as seen on the broadcast video.

Benjamin Creme, the Editor-in Chief of Share International Magazine, has privileged access to this information from inside Iraq. He sent a press release about Saddam's death to media and government authorities on Tuesday 8th April 2003.

In early 2004, the Russians applied skilful diplomatic pressure on America to allow Sajida Heiralla Tuffah access to the captured\"Saddam Hussein". Sajida was Saddam's wife and the mother of his children. The meeting took place in April 2004 at the American military base in Qatar.

The Saddam lookalike was flown in aboard a United States Air Force VIP jet. Sajida arrived from Syria with her official escort, Sheikh Hamad Al-Thani, and entered the detention area where the lookalike was being held. She emerged only moments later pink with rage and shouting: "This is not my husband but his double! Where is my husband? Take me to my husband!"

American officials rushed forward to shield Mrs Saddam from perplexed Russian observers, trying to insist that Saddam had changed a lot while in custody and she probably didn't recognise him. "You think I do not know my husband?\" Sajida shouted furiously, \"I was married to the man for more than twenty-five years!"

This episode was witnessed by up to twenty individuals from at least five different countries. Pravda (Moscow, Russia) and four other Eastern newspapers reported the event in detail between the 13th and 17th April 2004. The New York Times and other Western news outlets censored the story under pressure from security agencies.

In the Question and Answers section of the December 2006 edition of Share International Magazine, Benjamin Creme was asked: \"Why would the man who is posing as Saddam Hussein go on so long with the lie? He is putting himself through much grief, for what?\" His answer was: "The outrageous and sinister truth is that the poor man who has just been sentenced to hanging no longer realizes that he is not Saddam Hussein but a lookalike cousin. For a year in the hands of the CIA he has been systematically brain-washed by chemicals and hypnosis to forget his own identity and assume that of Saddam Hussein, President of Iraq. These methods have been used by many of the Intelligence agencies in the world for very many years, especially for transforming and using captured spies. It was for this process to be carried out that this stand-in for Saddam Hussein disappeared from public view, after his capture, for so long.
