The Body Double Revisited
There seems to be a lot of momentum behind the original Body Double theory at the moment. Lets have a closer look.
In the past – particularly during the first Gulf War – the media and politicians were always quick to remind us how many body doubles Saddam had, for example The BBC‘s Panorama programme and The Scotsman both discussed the doubles, as well as work by forensic pathologist Dr Dieter Buhmann. It was pretty much held as common knowledge that Saddam had and was using Body Doubles on a regular basis.
Fast forward to today, and the issue of body doubles has been convienitently ignored by the media. Even if the “real” Saddam was captured, surely someone would have at least seen the others by now? They cant have been hiding in a hole in an orchard for 4 years!
So this brings us to the question – did they get the real Saddam? When the US infamously declared “We got ‘im!”, how could they be so sure he was the “real” Saddam? Where was the voice of caution reminding us that he might have been a double?
Just to really drive the point home here, lets look at a picture. On the left are two photos of “Saddam” before capture, and on the right are two photos of “Saddam” after capture.
Check out the teeth!
I have blown up and highlighted the lower tooth line from both the pre-capture and post-capture Saddam. As you can see, on the left we have a near perfect set of lower incisors, yet on the right we have a wobbly set of frankly pretty poor looking teeth.
Either this is a different person, or the US troops that captured Saddam beat him hard enough to really screw his teeth up this badly.
Another thing you will have noticed are the red circles. On the two lower Saddams you can clearly see a mole on his left temple. On the top-left Saddam this mole is missing. Top Left Saddam is therefore not the same individual as Lower Left Saddam due to the missing mole, and Lower Left Saddam is not the same as Lower Right Saddam due to the teeth.
Therefore there are at least 3 people who might be the real Saddam! Yet the politicians and the media have ignored this? Why? Is Lower Left Saddam the genuine article?
I’d be inclined to argue that the real Saddam wouldn’t have such poor teeth whilst all his body doubles had immaculate sets, likewise I dont think he would have sat in a hole just waiting to be captured. Perhaps Lower Left Saddam’s mission all along was to get captured and sacrifice himself so the real Saddam can escape.
