Does anyone really believe that the US government would risk putting a fake Saddam on trial, only to have the real Saddam ultimately come forward and
make them look like fools to the Iraqi people and the entire world? I sincerely doubt it myself. I also believe that no matter how realistic-looking
Saddam's body doubles may have been, surely the millions of Iraqis know what their leader looks and sounds like. Surely even voice analysis has been
done comparing known Saddam speeches with his spoken words in court and/or captivity.
And I challenge you all to find someone who is willing to be a body double for a dictator at his trials, be held for years in solitary confinement,
and ultimately executed. Where's the payoff there??? And what of the former regime figures, such as Tariq Aziz, who were all paraded past Saddam
and saw him in person. Surely they know if that is the real Saddam or not. Surely Aziz of all people, who is in poor health and is cooperating with
the Iraqi government and coalition authorities, would have told them that they have the wrong guy. Surely the DNA from his two deceased sons Uday and
Qusay would not match up to that of their father's body double- unless of course the body double was pretending to be Saddam years ago and giving it
good to the First Lady of Iraq!!!!
