Give This Man a Medal

Meet the St. Louis auto mechanic who jacked Saddam Hussein’s jaw.

“I was so angry,” says Samir, who immigrated to St. Louis eleven years ago after fleeing Iraq. “I began cussing at him, calling him a motherfucker, a son-of-a-bitch — you name it. I told him I was Shiite from the south and was part of the revolution against him in 1991. I said he murdered my uncles and cousins. He imprisoned my father.

“All these years of anger, I couldn’t stop. I tried to say the worst things I could. I told him if he were a real man he would have killed himself. I asked him: ‘Why are you living in that dirty little hole, you bastard? You are a rat. Your father is a rat.'”

In Arabic, Saddam told Samir to shut up. And when Saddam called him a traitor, an enraged Samir silenced his prisoner with a flurry of quick jabs to the face.

“I punched Saddam in the mouth.”

Samir’s extravagant story is difficult to believe — until he pulls out his laptop computer and rifles through the dozens of photographs he shot that night. There’s the photo of Samir posed next to the bodyguard who will ultimately lead U.S. forces to Saddam. There’s the photo of Samir standing behind the stack of $12 million in U.S. currency seized near Saddam’s hideout. And there’s the most riveting image of all: Samir kneeling behind the bruised and bloodied dictator just minutes after his inglorious capture.

The sad part of this story is that Sodomy Insane isn’t taking a savage beating every hour on the hour. Instead, we have the Red Crescent standing outside his cell making sure he’s getting his tea and crumpets and allowed to write his poetry. Assholes.

  3. I love the idea of “every hour on the hour” beatings for Saddam. But I think we’d have to take things a step further to really give proper payback, and that would be daily gang rape. Just keep him imprisoned until he’s been tortured, raped, and mutilated to the extent that he meted out to the Iraqi people during his regime. See how easy that was? 😈
