Then came the pictures of the hitherto clean-shaven, articulate, educated and proud Saddam Hussein, crawling out of a hole, disheveled, bearded and dirty, supposedly in December but with the date trees laden with mature fruits, which only takes place in August in that part of the world. Another strange occurrence.
The supposed Saddam was shown by an unconvincing Paul Bremer who declared "Ladies and Gentlemen, (pause) we got him!" The pause was telling, an unsaid "I am going to tell a lie". When the ex-President of Iraq's wife was taken to Qatar to see him, she burst out laughing and immediately said that this
was not her husband. Had the Americans fallen for their own trap, or were a small group of Americans fooling the others?
Curiously, the Saddam shown by the Americans has a long beard after capture and continues to wear an unruly beard now, whereas Saddam Hussein the president was always clean-shaven and with a moustache. Why the beard now? To hide the fact that he is not the real Saddam? To hide the jaw line?
Now, the Holy Grail is offered by Joe Vialls, who sent his article "Shaddam Shaddam's new Vaudeville Scam" to Pravda.Ru this morning. In this piece he points out that all photographers were banned from photographing "Saddam" in court for security reasons but then the CNN arrived in the person of
Christiane Amanpour, who immediately started shooting hundreds of metres of video footage, which was then transformed into stills.
Here was the mistake. As Mr. Vialls points out, the real Saddam Hussein had a fine set of teeth, completely even, in which the upper jaw closed over the lower (overbite). The figure paraded in court, as it is easy to see, has highly irregular lower teeth and a condition called "underbite", when the lower teeth close in front of the upper.
Touche. Dental records cannot lie. The set of teeth of the President of Iraq and the set of teeth of the man paraded before the cameras pretending to be Saddam Hussein are wholly and totally different.
The man they have in court is not the real Saddam Hussein. Yet another lie by this Bush administration is exposed. How much lower can this clique of criminals sink?

Surely when the captured 'saddam' , knowing he used double/s they would dna test to be sure it was him?
DNA test was used swiftly to nail the dictator
The DNA test which officials say confirmed Saddam Hussein's identity hours after his capture was a quick version of a now routine forensic science test.
The test, required to rule out a body double, compared genetic material from the captured man with stored samples known to be from the deposed Iraqi leader or from close relatives - presumably his sons, killed in July.
By analysing several bits of DNA, the test can determine whether the samples match.

Propoganda is one thing, outright lying and photo-shopping is pure damned evil.

it's not the same guy, me thinks. overbite vs. underbite., negative i.d. by wife. it doesn't look like him. silly long beard. has the eye's of a sad hobo, not a proud evil meglomaniac.
and the number one reason, ....BECAUSE THE US MILITARY [size=18]LIES ABOUT EVERYTHING
...supposedly in December but with the date trees laden with mature fruits, which only takes place in August in that part of the world.
