Repost from the old site.
This video was always pretty hard to find, but it’s probably even harder to find now with time. It’s a pretty fascinating video of Saddam Hussein’s funeral in Al Awja, Iraq, his hometown. The footage is pretty emotional and scary and there are lots of scary-looking and very angry Arabs there, many with their faces covered. I assume they are members of the anti-US Iraqi guerrillas. There’s nothing really gross about it, although you do see the body for a bit.
All in all, an interesting piece of history. See it on Robert Lindsay Returns here.
