Saddam Hussein, due to be hanged within 30 days, said his execution should be seen as a sacrifice for the nation and called on Iraqis to unite and fight U.S. forces in the country.
BAGHDAD, Iraq – In a farewell letter to the Iraqi people,
Saddam Hussein urged his countrymen not to hate the people of the nations that toppled his regime nearly four years ago and said he was offering “my soul to God as a sacrifice.
So which one is it?
