Saddam's uniformAnyone who fancies spending the next few weeks sitting in a glass enclosure declaring "I am the president of Iraq and I refuse to acknowledge the authority of this tribunal" will need the apparel to complete the dramatic coutroom effect and, lo and behold, a Saddam Hussein uniform has popped up at Manion's International Auction House for bids in excess of $5k:

Here it is - the ultimate artifact from Operation Iraqi Freedom - one of former President Saddam Hussein's daily dress uniforms. High quality olive green polyblend fabric, precision stitched, with two pleated chest pockets and glossy green buttons to each flap and down the front.

So reads the Manion's blurb which also notes that a previous Saddam uniform went for over $20k. The company told Reuters the togs were "obtained by a soldier in the U.S. army's Third Infantry Division after American troops seized Baghdad airport in April 2003". ®
