Not wishing to blow ones own trumpet. But I cant help´wondering if the walling with barbed wire of Saddam's birthplace village might have less to do with them passing "secret messages" directing resistance and more to do with protecting the supposed "graveyard" of the Hussein family containing Uday and Qusay from prying eyes. As revealed on CASI messageboard recently, this supposed funeral was nothing more than a media fake. The photos released clearly showed there was a) no cemetary, simply a completely open field. b) no nearby village c) no giant monument to Saddam's mother or child victims of coalition bombing raids nearby. d) no gate or fence that could be used to control mourners or protect the "graves" (sic). e) nor for that matter any coffins or signs of crowd anger or mourning contrary to media reports. Perhaps this latest move is more to protect from prying eyes those Iraqis who genuinely feared and hated the younger Husseins and would wish to see for themselves if the "family cemetary" really did match in anyway the media reports and photos. Surely not. It must be a hotbed of Baathist resistance. ____________________________________________________________ FREE ADHD DVD or CD-Rom (your choice) - click here! http://ad.doubleclick.net/clk;6413623;3807821;f?http://mocda2.com/1/c/563632/131726/311392/311392 AOL users go here: http://ad.doubleclick.net/clk;6413623;3807821;f?http://mocda2.com/1/c/563632/131726/311392/311392 This offer applies to U.S. Residents Only _______________________________________________ Sent via the discussion list of the Campaign Against Sanctions on Iraq.
