Saddam Capture Hoax: the Newest Loony Left Conspiracy Theory

Now an ex-Marine sergeant is claiming that Saddam Hussein's capture was staged; that in fact, he was captured at a house near the spiderhole where he was photographed being taken into custody.

Nadim Abou Rabeh claims that Saddam actually put up a fight and that another Marine was killed during the capture. Then, he says, "a military production team" staged the spiderhole capture.

Rabeh's story would be more credible if he weren't currently residing in Lebanon, and if the Dread Pundit Bluto hadn't personally talked to a member of the capture team (who had photos) about a month after the capture. Also, Rabeh claims that the capture team had twenty members, none of whom have come forward to back up his tale.
