Listen to the Prank Call of ‘Saddam Hussein’ Played on a Former Iraqi Official

(By Jonathon M. Seidl, The Blaze) - Ever since Saddam was killed in 2006, Elvis-like rumors have swirled regarding his existence, mainly that he still has one. So it’s no surprise that a YouTube video of a prankster calling a former high-ranking Iraqi official and posing as Saddam is garnering a lot of attention.

The target was Hassan al-Allawi, who was once a close friend of Saddam’s. And while he was never full convinced it was Saddam on the other line, he did comment the prankster.

“Saddam used certain words and emotions when he talked to me,” he told the 'New York Times'. “And this guy had all those words and emotions in this call.”
