The Family Man

According to one of his four wives, Saddam Hussein is quite a guy.

SADDAM Hussein’s second wife, who lives with the ousted Iraqi leader’s only surviving son under an assumed name in Lebanon, said her husband calls or writes to them at least once a week, a London newspaper reported today.

Not only that – he cries.

She said Saddam had arrived at her hiding place on April 9, the day Baghdad fell, to say goodbye.

“He came to me very depressed and sad,” she told the paper.

“He took me to the next room and cried. He knew he had been betrayed.

What a snag!

These warm, fuzzy feelings for Hussein are shared by his daughter Raghad (not to be confused with “Raghead” or “Baghdad”), who was interviewed earlier this year.

Raghad insisted that despite his brutal reputation, Saddam had been a caring father, whom she missed a great deal.

“He was a very good father, loving and with a very big heart. He loved his daughters, sons, grandchildren. He was a very good father,” she said, speaking in fluent English.

Asked what she would say to him, if he could hear her, she said: “I love you and miss you as a father, if not more than that.”
