Ex-Marine Says Public Version of Saddam Capture Fiction
United Press International
A former U.S. Marine who participated in capturing ousted Iraqi President Saddam 
Hussein said the public version of his capture was fabricated. 
Ex-Sgt. Nadim Abou Rabeh, of Lebanese descent, was quoted in the Saudi daily al-
Medina Wednesday as saying Saddam was actually captured Friday, Dec. 12, 
2003, and not the day after, as announced by the U.S. Army. 
"I was among the 20-man unit, including eight of Arab descent, who searched for 
Saddam for three days in the area of Dour near Tikrit, and we found him in a 
modest home in a small village and not in a hole as announced," Abou Rabeh said. 
"We captured him after fierce resistance during which a Marine of Sudanese origin 
was killed," he said. 
He said Saddam himself fired at them with a gun from the window of a room on the 
second floor. Then they shouted at him in Arabic: "You have to surrender. ... There 
is no point in resisting." 
"Later on, a military production team fabricated the film of Saddam's capture in a 
hole, which was in fact a deserted well," Abou Rabeh said. 
Abou Rabeh was interviewed in Lebanon.
