Here’s how you make some fake news:
Take a long-dead tyrant, find a family member who loved their tyrant father, and start asking them questions.
The tyrant is Saddam Hussein and his daughter, 48-year-old Ragdad, was interviewed in hushed tones for CNN.
They asked her about that moment when her father was taken away, the hood was placed over his neck and he was hung.
“I never saw that moment and I refuse to see it,” Raghad said. “The details of his death are ugly and painful — but it’s an honorable death,” Raghad said by phone from the Jordanian capital, where she sought refuge after the 2003 invasion of Iraq.
She said his death – the honorable way he died – brought “pride” to her heart.
Ragdad blames the United States for the chaos that followed after the death of her father, so she has few kind words for both presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama.
