Dr. Bill Deagle PhD, a Vancouver doctor, who has his radio show "Nutri Medical Report And Clay And Iron Show" said he is on state commissions both in Canada and the USA. He said indeed that Saddam, after being hanged, somehow resurrected and was seen alive in Malaysia. Really, he was awarded honorary citizenship of the USA in 1980 and 23 years later he was hanged? And he was protected in the UN by the USA when he gassed a million Iranians an a lot of Kurds, and finally he was condemned for "crime against humanity" for having killed 140 Iraqui people who rose against him. No other charge, only that. Well, if we speak of crime against humanity, the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombs were just that. The pollution of Iraq with depleted uranium weapons was just that. And overall, I also think Saddam was a Western agent and was not executed, just as Bin Laden was not. They did their jobs and disappeared from view, but were not killed, very probably.

I wonder if this book tells all details about Saddam. Before the war on Iraq on Canadian TV I saw a short documentary about Saddam and I videotaped it. In it they showed and said that Saddam visited the USA in 1980 and he was given honorary citizenship of the USA and the keys of the city of Boston. He also gave 100,000$ to a Christian church there. In 1980 the United Nations wanted to condemn Saddam for using chemical weapons, killing 1 Million Iranians in war - the USA vetoed the condemnation. The weapons he had have been given him mainly by the British and the Americans; he used the same military jeeps too. Dr. Bill Deagle, PhD, in his talk show titled: "Nutri Medical Report" said in 2007 that "Saddam was seen going to casinos in Malaisia; he has straight teeth and has millions in the bank." Well, even Hitler was known to have used look-alikes at times. When allegedly hanged, the person shown as Saddam had a sack pulled on his head; who knows who it was. Not everything that is printed is true. One must cross-examine facts and remember what happened 20 years earlier. Saddam may have been a Western agent who provided the pretexts for the invasion of Iraq, which had been planned and published in 1990 in an official document titled: "Project for a new American century."
