    I had never heard of it until recently.
    https://www.theguardian.com/world/2010/may/26/cia-saddam-hussein-gay-sex-smear-plot

    "According to the Washington Post's security blog, some of America's spooks believed that shooting a fake video of Saddam cavorting with a teenage boy might destabilise his regime in the runup to the US-led invasion in 2003. "It would look like it was taken by a hidden camera. Very grainy, like it was a secret videotaping of a sex session," the Washington Post quoted one former CIA official as saying.

    Nor was the Saddam sex tape the only idea floating around the more bizarre corners of the CIA's Iraq Operations Group. Other ploys involved interrupting Iraqi television with a false newsflash that would announce Saddam was handing over power to his hated and feared son Uday. The presumed idea was to shock the Iraqi people into rising up against their leaders and thus make the invasion a lot easier."

    What the hell? If he was such a bad person, why not just highlight the truth?

    Never heard of psychological operations?

    Besides, I doubt this would have been anything more than simple embarrassing for Saddam. There's so much gay sex in the Middle East, very commonplace.

    And what do you mean "if he was such a bad person?" Are you serious? He was a terrible dictator, there's no question about it. It's just that maybe the Iraqi people needed a horrible dictator to keep them from waging endless civil war with one another.

    Be afraid. With CGI they could make it look like anyone is banging anything.

    I'm sure they had lots of plans. Some probably even more bizarre and half baked than those. But as to why they didn't highlight the truth it probably had to do with daily life in Iraq for most people. It was a police state and it sucked, but as long as you minded your P's and Q's and did what the regime wanted they wouldn't just up and murder you. Uday on the other hand had gotten the reputation as a sadistic bastard that would rape and kill for fun. Just so you have an idea of how bad he was, supposedly Saddams regime put him in prison for his behavior.

    So true.
    Uday was a total psycho.
    Qusay seemed pretty mellow.
    Funny how brothers can differ

    You should. Nothing beats a good court room farce.
