Autograph Hunting With Saddam Hussein

by | 2nd, May 2008

SERGEANT Mark Heinbaugh survived a meeting with Saddam Hussein, and he has the autograph to prove it.

Not only that but Saddam was good enough to sign the ace of spades playing card, the top trump on Iraq’s Most Wanted playing cards deck.


Says Heinbaugh: “A lot of detainees were happy to sign the cards. They said it made them look like celebrities.”

It’s good to know what drives the despot onwards is the thought of being recognised in his local bank and sharing a page on an autograph hunter’s book with Yasser Arafat, TV’s Mr Motivator and Anthe Turner.

Whoever said that politics was showbiz for lunatics was right.

Best wishes
