Just Curious - Whatever Happened To All Of Saddam's Doubles?.....
Will Saddam really hang or when the turnover from U.S. custody to Iraqi custody - will a switch be made to one of Saddam's doubles?

3. I doubt it
First of all, it would be pointless. There's nothing to gain by hanging a doppelganger. Secondly, I think they've kept a pretty close eye on Saddam while in captivity. After all, he's one of the "prizes". Wasn't he the King on the infamous Deck of Cards issued to the military? No, I'm pretty sure the Saddam they hang is the real Saddam.

His doubles will crop up from time to time, just like Elvis sightings, and be fodder for inane conspiracy theories and blurry black and white photos in the Enquirer and other supermarket tabloids. Or, maybe they'll just get their own reality TV show, and good ole Baghdad Bob (or Regis Philbin) can host it.

4. There is really no way to know.
Saddam was our boy once upon a time. If he ends his days screwing incredibly pretty prostitutes and eating lobster newberg how will we ever know?

6. How about DNA confirmation?
They did it with his charming sons. I think the Iraqis are quite capable of testing this on their own, if they really need convincing.

Or, maybe you're right. Maybe he and Elvis will be seen at Red Lobster, laughing about big cars, velvet paintings, and busty women. That is, until Oswald, who also isn't dead, takes them both out with a single bullet.

9. One will be hanged shortly--the real Saddam will be golfing with KennyBoy Lay in Paraguay
It's the least they could do for his keeping his mouth shut during the trial.
