The only thing fake is the story itself. The U.S. Marines have no record of the person making the allegation, and the story originated in an anti-American newspaper. <br><br>UPI was the first wire service to pick this up, and they should be ashamed of themselves. The story is a complete fabrication. <br><br>
Come to think of it, maybe he did!<br><br>Here's a follow-up story, with comment from the Pentagon:<br><br>The published claim that Saddam Hussein's capture in a "spider hole" was staged by the U.S. military continues to fall apart, as the Marine Corps has no record of the purported former Marine making the allegation.<br><br>As WorldNetDaily reported, a Saudi newspaper printed a story with someone claiming to be a former Marine who participated in the capture of Saddam Hussein.<br><br>Named as Sgt. Nadim Abou Rabeh, the man said to be in Lebanon claimed Saddam was caught in a house, not an underground bunker, a day before the military has maintained publicly.<br><br>"Later on, a military production team fabricated the film of Saddam's capture in a hole, which was in fact a deserted well," Abou Rabeh told al-Medina, according to a version picked up by United Press International.<br><br>"I spoke with our people at manpower this morning in regards [to Nadim Abou Rabeh]," Marine Capt. Gabrielle Chapin at the Pentagon told WorldNetDaily. "We do not have anyone in the system by the name reported."<br><br>Earlier, the Pentagon flatly denied the report of the staged capture.<br><br>"It's not true, period," Pentagon spokeswoman Cheryl Irwin told WorldNetDaily.<br><br>
<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>Actually, Saddam captured the Marines — and he did it by wearing a Bush mask!<p><hr></blockquote><p>LOL!<br><br>I'm just imagining Saddam faking a bad Bush accent .. <br><br>****************<br>no sig
