Saddam Hussein was a rich man, and now that he's gone some of his "bling" is going up for sale.
Well, it's supposedly his bling. We have Haitham Wihaib's word (an ex Saddam Hussein employee) that the items he's putting up for sale (including a custom-made gold and diamond Rolex, Dior sunglasses, and a Cartier pen with which Saddam was rumored to sign death warrants) used to belong to the famous Iraqi tyrant. Overall Wihaib hopes to raise £350,000 from the sale, to be put towards Iraqi schools.
Personally I don't care what the reason, I wouldn't buy that creep's stuff for any amount of money.
