Saddam met with his lawyer yesterday

27 April 2005 at 9:24:50 PM

After seeing so much of Saddam when he was captured, including each one of his teeth and being able to count the hairs on his head, the media hasn't covered him much at all. One time his pre-trial was shown, but the sound was cut off... we had the impression at the time that the US didn't want us to hear what Saddam was saying and the conclusion we reached is that there might be some discrepancies in the stories.

From this article in the Scotsman:

Mr Khasawneh said Saddam met Khalil al-Duleimi, an Iraqi member of the Jordanian defence team hired by his family to defend him against charges including killing thousands of Iraqis.

Saddam has been behind bars since he was captured by United States forces in December 2003. He is held in a US prison on the edge of Baghdad.

Mr Duleimi said after meeting Saddam the last time that the former dictator denied an American account that he surrendered to US forces when he was found in a hole near his home town of Tikrit.

What was said to Duleimi before? From from occupied Iraq)

CAIRO (dpa)december 27, 2004 - A lawyer for Saddam Hussein has disputed the US version of how the former Iraqi dictator was captured a year ago, reports said Sunday.

In an interview with the weekly al-Osbou magazine to appear Monday, Saddam's lawyer Khalil al-Duleimi said that the toppled dictator had described the US account of his capture as "a silly fabricated cowboy movie."

Saddam was captured on December 13, 2003. US forces said the deposed leader was found hiding in a hole in the ground near a farmhouse in al-Dour, south of his hometown Tikrit.

Al-Duleimi, who had a four-and-a-half hour meeting with Saddam last week in an unidentified location, quoted the former president as saying he was at a friend's house praying just before sunset when US soldiers surrounded him.

"I found the Americans around me and I did not have a back-up force. My weapon was far from me. I was arrested and terribly tortured in the first two days. If I knew they were near I would have fought them to death," al-Duleimi quoted Saddam as saying.

An Ex-Marine Says Public Version of Saddam is Fiction

Ex-Sgt. Nadim Abou Rabeh, of Lebanese descent, was quoted in the Saudi daily al-Medina Wednesday as saying Saddam was actually captured Friday, Dec. 12, 2003, and not the day after, as announced by the U.S. Army.

"I was among the 20-man unit, including eight of Arab descent, who searched for Saddam for three days in the area of Dour near Tikrit, and we found him in a modest home in a small village and not in a hole as announced," Abou Rabeh said.

"We captured him after fierce resistance during which a Marine of Sudanese origin was killed," he said.

He said Saddam himself fired at them with a gun from the window of a room on the second floor. Then they shouted at him in Arabic: "You have to surrender. ... There is no point in resisting."
