So Damn Saddam or Not?

Thursday, March 20th, 2003 · 1 Comment

As I wrote last night, I have doubts that the man on Iraqi TV was actually Saddam himself. He looked pretty fake-ass to me. Or maybe he’s just a hell of a lot paler since his country is under attack. I would certainly be scared shitless if I were being bombed by the military might of the strongest superpower ever known to man.

U.S. officials are still undecided, too.

    My best guess is that it _is_ Hussein, but that it was taped long before the initial bombings. It’s hard to tell when using the pic on CNN’s site, given that the photo quality is rather poor and the lighting is different.

    I think I heard on NBC that they haven’t seen Hussein wear glasses before, but they also said that he normally reads from a telepromt. Easy explanation: he’s far-sighted.
