Saddam Audiotape?

By  | 

In this one, the speaker acknowledges the death of Saddam's two
sons last week in a U-S military raid. The tape was aired on the
Arab satellite network Al-Arabiya.

The speaker says the Hussein brothers were martyrs. He says --
quote -- ``even if Saddam Hussein has 100 children other than Odai
and Qusai, Saddam Hussein would offer them the
same way.''

The broadcast is the second tape attributed to the ousted Iraqi
dictator in just over a week.

The speaker starts the tape with a verse from the Muslim holy
book -- and then pays condolences to Iraqis for the deaths of Odai
and Qusai Hussein.
