...And he was supposed to be one of the 'reconcilable' ones
The following footage (via sotaliraq.com) showing a man, allegedly identified as Adel al-Mashhadani (...looks very much like him) giving what appears to be a recent speech in Al-Fadhl. Mashhadani was the 'Sons of Iraq' leader who was arrested late last month by Iraqi forces. He had been on the U.S. payroll, who had hoped that he would be one of the former insurgents they could reconcile with, and then force the Iraqi state to put him on payroll.
I couldn't figure how to embed without the video automatically playing when the page is loaded, so kindly follow this link.
The crowd begins by shouting "Cheers to the resilient Ba'ath". Mashhadani then gives a pep talk saying that Iraq belongs to the youth of Iraq and "at their head is the Martyred Leader Saddam Hussein."
Then there's a funny, carnival-ish bit with a trumpet, concluding with the crowd shouting "With our souls, with our blood, we will [relinquish them to you] Oh Saddam." Mashhadani finishes up with a line of poetry: "We the youth will climb the scaffold [to be hanged], and for the sake of the Ba'ath and Saddam we will never waver."
