Mysterious 'Saddam Channel' hits Iraq TV


www.breitbart.com


BAGHDAD (AP) - Turning on their TVs during the long holiday weekend, Iraqis were greeted by a familiar if unexpected face from their brutal past: Saddam Hussein.
The late Iraqi dictator is lauded on a mysterious satellite channel that began broadcasting on the Islamic calendar's anniversary of his 2006 execution.

No one seems to know who is bankrolling the so-called Saddam Channel, although the Iraqi government suspects it's Baathists whose political party Saddam once led. The Associated Press tracked down a man in Damascus, Syria named Mohammed Jarboua, who claimed to be its chairma

It is mostly a montage of flattering, still images of Saddam—some of him dressed in military uniform, others in a suit, even one astride a white horse. One image shows his sons Odai and Qusai smiling with their father, and another their bodies after they and Saddam's grandson, Mustafa, were killed in a July 2003 gunfight with U.S. troops.

One prominently displayed image is that of a man burning an American flag. Another shows graves covered with Iraqi flags.

All the pictures are set against audio recordings of Saddam making speeches and reciting poetry. Patriotic songs urge listeners to "liberate our country." None of the pictures appear to be recent, and no announcers or commentators appear or speak.


I hope this doesn't cause a resurgence of violence. What other motive could be behind this other then to try and dissrupt the current regiem?

As horrible as this is. It would be a direct assault on freedom of speech to forcefully stop this.

Would the long holiday weekend be the Feast of the Sacrifice? That's a bit ironic. I wonder if his family was involved in this at all. And then of course there are those who say he was never really tried and hung at all...that it was a double in the courtroom and who was killed. Very odd and curious indeed.

Does the new Iraqi Government support freedom of speech?
Also wasnt the "Chairman" in another country supporting the broadcast?

You know its probably our government ... or the current iraqi government ... back when saddam was alive he was feared ... the sunni and the shiite clerics wouldnt dare raise a hand in violence for fear of being tortured and killed...they are probably trying to remind people how this extremism thing can come full circle...
