"Saddam had this painting commissioned? Hmm. Is this a verifyable fact, or more of the same from you?"
From the soldiers who found the painting, this is what they were told. I don't have proof of this, however.
"In any case, how does this painted image (as tasteless as it is) tie him to the 911 atrocity? "
It doesn't. The painting isn't proof of anything. That's not all that I posted however.
