Saddam’s Dirt for Sale

sadhead.jpg offers you the opportunity to own a piece of Iraqi and international history. We travelled to al-Dawr village, some 180 kilometers to the North of Baghdad, to the tiny farmhouse owned by a farmer called Jasem al-Namash. The underground chamber the former Iraqi leader had secreted himself in was 1.8 meters by 2.4 meters deep, with enough space for a person to lie down, and an air vent and extractor fan. Less than a hundred feet away, a recently disturbed and hastily dumped pile of sand is the only clue to the hurried origins of Saddam’s final hiding place from his American pursuers.

Wasn’t it PT Barnum that said “Suckers have no right owning money.”
