OK its short range and big target (swelled head) but he does make it without a stock on a rifle with not the best sights. Does it look like there are two misses on the target (one at the left edge of the forehead, and one clean miss to the left?)

(from this news site: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/shared/spl/hi/pop_ups/06/in_pictures_saddam_hussein0s_iraq/html/1.stm

Original caption In 2003, after 10 years of sanctions and stop-start weapons inspections by the UN, the US decided to remove Saddam Hussein's regime from power. On the first night of military action, he narrowly escaped a targeted air strike designed to kill him.)

Well, he is point shooting. IMO, if he can do it regularly (hitting precisely what he point shoots at, e.g. SH's forehead), he'd be a good shot. Hard to tell from one photo though.

Looks like the dust is edited on. The BBC get a lot of their photos from Reuters and Reuters have been caught doctoring images from the middle east many times.

CFriesen, sorry but I kinda like seeing murderous genocidal dictators being set as an example for others out there like him.
