Airport screeners halt Hussein exodus

http://www.jewishworldreview.com | Saddam Hussein and his sons, Uday and Qusay, attempted to leave Iraq tonight in response to U.S. President George Bush's speech, however they were detained for questioning at the airport and missed their flight. Each of the three men was stopped for a different reason.

When a security agent scanned Uday at the gate, "the metal detector lit up like a Christmas tree," he said. "Uday tried to claim that it was because the French surgeon had not removed all the bullet fragments."

In 1997, Uday Hussein was shot 10 times in an assassination attempt.

His brother, Qusay, attempted to board the 737 with an oversized carry-on bag filled with a white powdery substance, and a handgun he described as "harmless trinket of sentimental value which my father gave me for my third birthday."

Saddam Hussein was detained for questioning because he fit "the terrorist profile."

The soon-to-be-former Iraqi leader accused the screeners of racial profiling and threatened to call the American Civil Liberties Union.
