Remember all the stink about if the Army had staged the toppling of Saddam’s statue and forever and a day they swore it was a totally spontaneous act. Think again.
An internal Army study of the war in Iraq has confirmed that the infamous toppling of the statue of Saddam Hussein in Firdos Square in central Baghdad on April 9, 2003 was stage-managed by American troops and not a spontaneous reaction by Iraqis.
In other news, the U.S. continues to censor coverage of Hussein’s trial – deciding what the world will hear in this crucial case. What are they so scared for the world to hear? Maybe all of our complicity with Saddam in the mid-80s?
