The Many Faces of Saddam Hussein
But now, German scientists have established that the Saddam Hussein we see on TV is not the real Saddam Hussein. Saddam Hussein has at least three doubles.
This has been established by examining small details such as the size of his ears, for example. This discovery was first reported in the German ZDF Public Television Network.
ZDF said it was difficult to tell which were the doubles and which was the real Saddam Hussein. Minor details such as the size of the ears, hands and shape of the shoulders gave the lookalikes away, ZDF said. "They have apparently undergone surgery to appear to look like the statesman," ZDF said. "The doubles have mastered Saddam's gestures and perfectly mimic Saddam, with only tiny details separating them from the real Saddam Hussein."
One tip-off is that when a double appears, there is a blank wall behind him. There is never a picture of the real Saddam Hussein in the background behind the double.
Here is one example. On the left in this photo is the Real Saddam Hussein. On the right is the fake. There is a small difference in the width of the eye.
UPDATE: More Saddam Husseins appeared on Iraqi TV on Ocrober 14, 2002 on the eve of the "election" to affirm the power of Saddam Hussein. One seems almost certain to be the real Saddam, because it shows him meeting with the President of Algeria. Are they all the same person?
Has anybody noticed that in every recent photo of Saddam Hussein, he is sitting down in a chair. Is there something wrong with him? Is he no longer able to walk?
