Slowly, but surely, many facts about what happened in the days prior to Saddam’s hanging are being uncovered by the world media. Tapped phone calls reveal that Saddam and other accused undergoing the trial had many rounds of discussions with someone in an African country. There were also some speculations that Al-Qaeda was making these international phone calls to destinations faraway from USA in the hope that USA might send some of its troops to each of these places thus leaving only George Bush in the mainland USA to defend the country.
Sources say that there were extensive debates between the Iraqi Regime, George Bush, Tony Blair, Sasha Baron Cohen(Borat) and Al-Qaeda’s spokesperson as to the way Saddam should be dealt with. Borat was always put in the conference call to act as a mediator as he had had extensive cultural learnings in the USA to make benefit other countries. Al-Qaeda expressed a keen interest in this, as they felt that Osama Bin Laden would also have to go through the same process when he is captured and put on trial just before the November 2008 American elections.
Weeks before the mid-term elections, the Iraqi regime had called on George Bush to find out what had to be done with Saddam Hussein, as his food bill was proving to be too expensive for the Iraqi government. Bush said, “Hang on for some more time, I am busy as it is just before the mid-term elections”. Unfortunately, there was no translator available and the little English that the Iraqis knew, they understood it as “Hang him some time before the mid-term elections”.
So, the Iraqis announced to the world that they were hanging Saddam. The media started collecting the reactions from around the world. One very famous news channel called NDTV started talking to people around India and the very first person they spoke to was the chairperson of the National Muslim league. This guy would have, under normal circumstances, blabbered something about the ruling Congress Party being responsible for the mess in Iraq etc. But, our smart NDTV reporter asked him, “As a devout Muslim, what is your opinion about this?”. This triggered a response of the day being a festival day for Muslims and the like. Then, the reporter goes to the head of the Indian Christian Front and asks him “Do you think Saddam is a direct descendant of Adam and the US is trying to project him as a Muslim?”. That guy replies,
The news is so bad,
that it makes me very sad.
A person called Saddam,
whose ancestor was Addam (rhyme it here please)
is being hung,
in a country far-flung!
Bush took extreme precautions to prevent a Fahrenheit 911 kind of video happening again with Saddam’s hanging, but an amateur videomaker who wanted to make a movie like “The Blair witch project” started shooting the hanging of Saddam and released the video “The Hangman project”.
