Saddam looking frazzled. It’s a pretty humorous photo. He certainly doesn’t look like the guy who would later appear in court attempting to bully the judges, prosecutors and the judiciary process as a whole. He no longer looks like the man who stood on a balcony of one of his many palaces and told the Iraqi Army that the “mother of all battles” is upon us and that victory is assured them by Allah.
These are some photos from the capture of Saddam Hussein. A friend gave me these a couple of years back. He knew some of the guys on the Task Force that caught Saddam. Below are photos of Saddam just after he was pulled from the spider hole in which he was found. There is also a photo of the entrance to his hiding place and some of the money that he had stashed with him.
I blacked out the faces. I figured there may still be some folks running around out there who would rather not be easily identified.
