Saddam talks to Kurdish refugees

The Kurds love being relocated

Sadaam Hussein: Things Working Out "Very Well" for Poor Evacuees from Mosul
By E&P Staff

Published: September 05, 1988 7:25 PM ET

IRBIL Accompanying his wife, Sadaa Hussein, on a tour of Kurdish refugee centers in Irbil, President Hussein said today, referring to the poor who had lost everything back home and evacuated, "This is working very well for them."

The President's remarks were aired this evening on Iraqi Public Radio's "Our Leader Speaks" program.

He was part of a group in Irbil today at the soccer stadium, that included his wife , who were chosen by her son, Qusay, to head fundraising efforts for the recovery. Tariq Aziz and Uday Hussein were also present.

In a segment at the top of the show on the surge of evacuees to the northern city, Sadaam Hussein said: "Almost everyone I’ve talked to wants to move to Irbil."

Then he added: "What I’m hearing is they all want to stay here. Everyone is so overwhelmed with the hospitality.

"And so many of the people in the stadium here, you know, were underprivileged anyway so this (she chuckled)--this is working very well for them."
I mean, these has to be the words of a genocidal madman, right?
