Unconfirmed sources report the deposed Iraqi leader has traveled to Crawford Texas to lend his support to the anti-war protests outside the Presidents’ ranch. Saddam Hussein asked Cindy Sheehan if he could honor his lost sons by demanding that Bush meet with him to explain the real reasons for the war. Supporters of Sheehan explained to reporters, “the unlikely pair seem to have found common ground in their criticism of the Bush administrations handling of Iraq.”
Speaking to an assembled crowd of thousands, former President Saddam Hussein, with Cindy at his side, broke into tears as he recounted the loss of his two sons Uday and Qusay. “In a war fought over weapons of mass destruction that I didn’t have….. I lost my only sons.” Saddam fought back the tears as he apologized to Cindy for the loss her son in what he called Bush’s war of folly.
Saddam Hussein went on to say ” I feel the same pain as does my friend Cindy Sheehan. We both lost love ones in a useless war that has taken the once bad country of Iraq and made it worse.” Saddam went on to complain that he had nothing to do with the 911 attacks and that George Bush should have captured Osama Bin Laden in Tora Bora “When he had the chance.”
After the press conference, Sheehan spoke candidly about Saddam, “I admire President Hussein, it takes a real man to face a dead soldiers’ mother and say ‘I’m sorry’, he may be a man of great evil but he has shown me more compassion than President Bush.”
