Extracts from this document...


Advocacy - Sadaam Hussain In a recent poll conducted by uvote for CNN the question was posed to the American public, do you trust Saddam Hussein? 94% said that they would never trust him, 5% said they weren't shore, and the remaining 1% said that they would consider trusting him.
