The daughter of the Former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein praises newly elected President Donald Trump as a man with “a high level of political sensibility”, as if the elections in 2016 and after it were not bizarre enough
Raghad Saddam Hussein in an interview with CNN, released on Thursday, she was suggesting that Trump will be commander who is finally able to normalize relations among the battle-ravaged Iraq and United States, and dissed the outgoing President Barack Obama and former President George Bush.
She said, “This man has just arrived to the leadership … but from what is apparent, this man has a high level of political sensibility that is vastly different than the one who preceded him.He exposed the mistakes of the others, specifically in terms of Iraq, which means he is very aware of the mistakes made in Iraq and what happened to my father.”
Until in 2003 the US-led forces ouster him, Saddam Hussein ruled Iraq from 1979. In December 2006 Raghad Saddam Hussein with her sister and their children, watched her father being hanged.
The execution was broadcast on state television, but while she watched the start, Raghad Saddam Hussein never witnessed the actual hanging. Also the complete execution wasn’t broadcast by the Iraqi TV, but several hours after the moment of death the video appeared.
On the 10th anniversary of the horror execution of her father Raghad Saddam Hussein, told CNN, “I never saw that moment, and I refuse to see it. [The details of his death are ugly and painful — but it’s an honorable death.”
She continued by saying,“I don’t think he would have gone in a death smaller than this.It was a death that brought pride to me, my children, my sisters and their children, to all those who love him and have a place for him in their heart.”
Of course, for the instability in her native country the daughter of the fallen dictator accuses the US, but for the Administration of Trump she seems open to that idea.
Trump during his campaign claims that he was against the war in Iraq from the beginning, but that is a blatant lie.
Could Raghad Saddam Hussein also have an affinity for the billionaire businessman, because in July he proposed that maybe Saddam Hussein despite his violent crimes committed against human rights, shouldn’t be dethroned by the US.
During a rally in Raleigh, North Carolina Trump said, “He was a bad guy — really bad guy. But you know what he did well? He killed terrorists. He did that so good. They didn’t read them the rights. They didn’t talk. They were terrorists. Over. Today, Iraq is Harvard for terrorism.”
At the beginning of the invasion of Iraq in 2003, Raghad Saddam Hussein fled and is currently living in Jordan. But today she is accused of supporting ISIS by the Iraqi government, which she denies.
She said, “Of course I don’t have any relations to this group [ISIS] and other extremist groups. Moreover, the family’s ideology has no similarities to that of extremist groups.”
“As a proof to this.these groups only became powerful in Iraq after we left the country and our rule ended” she also added.
