    Shafaq News/ A former American officer who participated in the arrest of former Iraqi President Saddam Hussein revealed, on Monday, new details related to the secret operation that took place on December 7, 2003.
    Retired Sergeant Kevin Holland, who participated, two decades ago, with the "Delta Force" specializing in the discovery of Saddam Hussein's hideout and the moment of his arrest, said in an interview published by the American newspaper "New York Post" and translated by Shafaq News Agency, that "Saddam Hussein expressed, immediately after his arrest, his desire to "Negotiation", while he was carrying a "Glock-18" pistol, a weapon that became one of the possessions of former US President George Bush.



    The report quoted Hollande as saying that the "Delta Force" team told the former Iraqi president the moment he was arrested from the hole, "President Bush sends you his regards."
    The American officer pointed out that the American special force received "human information" that led to their arrival to the hole where Saddam was hiding, and it was covered with a layer of tree leaves and sand, and it was closed with cork to hide the opening of the hole, and a small tube was extending from it to allow oxygen to enter.
    Holland said that "and his team uncovered the location of the pit supported by bricks and threw a hand grenade into it, then they heard a voice in Arabic gradually rising."
    He added, "The hands appeared from the hole, then a hairy head appeared, and we grabbed it, and it was as if we (saying): Well, it is him."
    The American officer described that situation as "an additional surreal moment, even though the team had information revealing that Saddam was hiding in this place."
    And the American sergeant continued, "He summoned one of his colleagues in the special squad to help him pull Saddam out of the hole, and he was muttering in shock by saying, 'It's him.'"
    Holland said that "Saddam was armed with a" Glock-18 ", and that is why one of the members of the American squad described him as "the big guy from Texas," pointing his weapon at Saddam's mouth to force him to stop moving and to snatch his gun from him.
    He pointed out that "President Bush is the one who owns this weapon now."
    Hollande pointed out that "the former dictator made an appeal to the elements of the American power, explaining that" Saddam, using the English language, "immediately said that he is the president of Iraq and that he is ready to negotiate."
    Holland described the reaction of the American band members as if they were saying, "It's too late, brother."
    The veteran American officer pointed out that "he had the feeling that Saddam was an evil man," explaining, "You can feel that he is nothing but an evil person from his mere existence, and this was a very disturbing thing."
    The American report concluded by noting that "Saddam's rule was marred by many accusations of human rights violations, including about 250,000 murders," adding that after he was arrested, he was handed over to the Iraqi interim government, and then convicted by an Iraqi court on charges of committing crimes against humanity. For his involvement in mass killings in 1982, he was sentenced to death by hanging, and he was executed on December 30, 2006.
