The Saudi al Watan: Saddam Hussein's health deteriorating Iraq-USA, Politics, 1/30/2004
The Saudi Arabian daily al-Watan said yesterday that health of the toppled Iraqi President Saddam Hussein is deteriorating, and that he suffers a disease in his stomach that makes him unable to take food he used to eat.
The paper added quoting a high ranking European source as saying that "a medical team is making analysis on a sample from his stomach and that Saddam started to stop eating the quantity and kinds of food he used to eat since his capture."
The source, on the other hand, stressed that " one Arab country " several days ago proposed to Washington to finalize ( a deal) concerning Saddam including transporting Saddam to one of its prisons and to be treated later as a political detainees, and this will be for this country to disclose financial lists on accounts for Saddam and other Arab states in it, and to give all these money to the American administration." The deal also includes "giving the US new oil contracts from this country and to give continued reports on Saddam and his contacts."
The source stressed that "this Arab country is considered now among the countries which is rebuilding its relations with American by being loyal to Washington over dangerous files like those on fighting terrorism, weapons of mass destruction and intelligence cooperation."
The official said that this Arab state will be considered, if the US approves this deal, as able to restore improvement in its relations with the Arab states which oppose strongly the detention of Saddam the way it had happened, and treating a head of an Arab state in a humiliating way as well as calming the Arab public.
Chances are , he is being tortured as we speak to spit out some information . I saw the 60 minutes special and when the representative was asked about if torture would be used on sadaam , he said no . However his response was a totally obvious lie and it took him a while to find words for it . Anyone who actually still buys the idea that we are not torturing sadaam after that special is either kidding themselves or "intellectually challenged" as to not be too offensive .
