    New Zealand - Tape:025] - Saddam Hussein meets with his international "guests"

    1990: Outrage at Iraqi TV hostage show
    Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein has appeared on state television with western hostages, provoking a storm of outrage. Saddam told the group of more than a dozen mainly British people they had been detained to prevent war and said Iraq wanted to see that they were safe. They are among hundreds of foreigners being held in Iraq since its invasion of Kuwait at the beginning of August.


    This ad goes away when you register.

    However, the Iraqi leader told them they were not being held as "human shields" saying Iraq was in a position to destroy any attacker.
    Saddam singled out one young British boy - named only as Stuart - and ruffled the child's hair. Speaking through an interpreter, he asked Stuart if he was getting his milk.

    The manipulation of children in that sort of way is contemptible
    Foreign Secretary Douglas Hurd

    The Iraqi leader told the group: "We hope your presence as guests here will not be for too long. "Your presence here, and in other places, is meant to prevent the scourge of war." They would become heroes of peace, Saddam added. The detainees, who looked strained and nervous, were promised tuition for their children and given permission to write to their families.
    At the end of the 30-minute taped appearance, the Iraqi leader posed for photographs with the hostages before shaking each one by the hand.

    A spokesman for the Gulf Support Group, set up by relatives of stranded Britons, said the interview "made all of us feel sick". The British Foreign Secretary, Douglas Hurd, also criticised the broadcast.
    Mr Hurd said: "I think the manipulation of children in that sort of way is contemptible."

    The TV appearance has also been condemned by the US.

    In Context
    Saddam made a second TV appearance with the hostages.
    In early September the women and children, including five-year old Stuart Lockwood, were allowed to fly home. The men were not allowed to leave until early December. Stuart Lockwood returned with his family to Worcester, central England but suffered a personal loss in 2001 when his father, Derek, died of a heart attack.

    The refusal of Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein to withdraw his troops from Kuwait led to the UN-backed Operation Desert Storm in January 1991.
    It would end in February with the defeat of the Iraqis and their subsequent forced departure from Kuwait.


    British child hostage who refused to sit on Saddam's knee is reunited with his rescuer Jesse Jackson | Mail Online

    British child hostage who refused to sit on Saddam's knee is reunited with his rescuer Jesse Jackson 19 years after ordeal A five-year-old British hostage made to pose alongside Saddam Hussein in the run up to the first Gulf War, has been reunited with U.S. civil rights campaigner the Reverend Jesse Jackson, who helped secure his eventual release.

    The haunting images of a clearly terrified Stuart Lockwood clad in a football top and stood before the Iraqi dictator, who playfully ruffled the child's hair, provoked outrage and consternation across the West.

    Mr Lockwood, now 24, his brother and parents, were amongst a number of Britons used as human shields by the Iraqis during the 1990 conflict



    Honour: Stuart Lockwood, now 24, is overjoyed to again meet Reverend Jackson who helped secure his release during the Gulf War His father Derek, who has since died, was working as a chemical engineer in the Kuwaiti oil industry when his family was kidnapped.

    While his wife and the two boys were held hostage for a month before being released, Derek Lockwood was detained for a further three months. Reverend Jackson played an instrumental role in negotiations to secure the release of the Western hostages in Iraq. Tonight, while receiving the Global Diversity Award 2009 in central London, Reverend Jackson was reunited with Stuart Lockwood for the first time since the ordeal.

    Mr Lockwood from Worcestershire, who is now a PE teacher, high-fived and then hugged the Reverend when they were reunited again this evening.



    19 years ago he was a TV child pawn: Suddam Hussein playfully ruffles Stuart's hair in a moment that terrified the boy The reverend said he felt 'overwhelmed with boundless joy' at the reunion.He said: 'When this happened there was so much tension in the air - he was so young and so innocent.'

    Mr Lockwood famously refused to sit on Saddam's knee during the footage.
    The Reverend Jackson added: 'He resisted the humiliation, he stood up.'
    Mr Lockwood said: 'It's a great honour to be here with the Reverend Jesse Jackson. He is the man that carried me off the plane at Heathrow Airport.'
    He said he couldn't remember much of his ordeal with Saddam but said he recognised that he was a powerful figure.

    'All I knew he was he was a fairly important man. There were pictures in the hallway and all down the corridor, it wasn't so much a situation that I was frightened of him, it was just one of those things that happens.'



    Marked in history: Rev Jackson watches the infamous video of Stuart and Saddam, at a London event where he was reunited with the British hostage
    During a televised visit to the hostages for a propaganda stunt, Saddam singled out Stuart. Footage of Saddam playing with Stuart's hair became one of the most enduring images of the conflict.

    The dictator had told the group: 'We hope your presence as guests here will not be for too long.' Reverend Jackson was brought in to try and help secure the freedom of the hostages. His reputation as a skilled negotiator was at that time well-founded as he had secured the release of citizens from Cuba and Syria in 1984.

    Speaking at the time of the footage, the then foreign secretary Douglas Hurd, said: "I think the manipulation of children in that sort of way is contemptible." The refusal of the Iraqi leader to withdraw his troops from Kuwait led to the UN-backed Operation Desert Storm in January 1991.
    The Rev Jackson said he had travelled to Iraq with the hope of releasing all the hostages and specifically Stuart.

    He explained: 'He had been as a five-year-old kid the object of this humiliation and had been used as a kind of trophy, we wanted to get him out of there and Saddam made that concession.'

    Mr Lockwood said he still kept in his house a picture of Rev Jackson carrying him off the plane that he flew back into the UK on following his ordeal in Iraq.
    He explained that seeing Reverend Jackson again was overwhelming, 'it's just such an amazing feeling', he said. The reunion was arranged by Labour MP Keith Vaz.

    Context of 'August 17-23, 1990: Iraq Announces All Foreign Citizens in Iraq and Kuwait to be Held Hostage'


    Saddam Hussein inquires about the health of young British hostage Stuart Lockwood, a scene broadcast on Iraqi television and shown worldwide. [Source: BBC]

    Iraqi officials announce that their forces will hold the citizens from any country threatening Iraq as hostages until the threats are ended. According to US diplomat Joseph Wilson, currently holed up in the US Embassy in Baghdad with his fellow diplomats, staffers, and at least 100 Americans hoping for protection from Iraqi depredations, the Iraqi announcement ends the fiction that Iraq is holding these citizens as “guests” (see August 4, 1990 and August 8, 1990). Still, Saddam Hussein tries to maintain the fiction for the press; in what Wilson will describe as “one notorious television appearance,” Hussein ruffles the hair of a seven-year old British boy, Stuart Lockwood, and asks if he had had his milk that day. Wilson will write, “The scared look on Stuart’s face, and his parents’ equally frightened expressions, chilled viewers worldwide.”

    who the fuck cares about this, that happened in 1990. There are human rights violations going on right now that are much worse than this. This only gets publicity because it was "British Boy" being held hostage in a "Terrorist" country.

    Rev. Jesse Jackson or whatever his name is, is just looking for publicity.

    Brandon you might want to take a look at what your great U S of A leaders are doing to children right now let alone 20 years ago.
    The most powerful teachers are those who challenge us to resolve the lessons within ourselves, forcing us to find the source of our healing, peace, love and power from our own resources. They don't refuse to love us because we are unlovable, although that is what we believe, their role is to get us to go within for whatever we are seeking.

    What about 43,000,000 dead native americans.

    The death (or in this case, kidnapping) of one is a tradegy. The death of millions is just a statistic.

    And by the way, your 19 years late with this story. Saddam is dead, (or is he? ) Iraq has been invaded.. Brandon, have you been playing with that damned time machine again?

    this is absolute BS, so he gets his hair ruffed by Saddam, so what?...the kid even yawns several times in the video, would he be yawning if he was as you say "frightened and scared of a brutel dictator ", take your BS American propaganda and lies elsewhere and come back when you have some real news.

    "Are you getting your milk Stewart? With corn flakes too" lol, that cracked me up.

    It has been bugging me since I was 6 years old of 1990 of all of these years since then and it is appaling that they had to allow this to happen in the first place when I saw this growing up it shocked the hell out of me when I saw it back then.

    many terrible things are happening and have happend to people thanks to a few ruling eliete
    but dwelling on them and geting angry about them is only going to manifest more
    obviosly i understand your point
    but look at cathy obrien
    and countless others who have been victims of mind control and sex scandles
    we are here to stop these things from hapening
    and to carry the torch into the darkness of the future
    peace and love

    ...

    No kidding. And when I went to elementary school I was never taught that Native Americans were slaughtered and then had their children taken away from them and put in Catholic schools. In fact, most people here don't really know------- we're living under some sort of illusion. I'm not saying I don't care about the lil' boy (one is already too much), but sometimes you get hype just cos a British/US person gets mistreated.

    I would just like to say that I am sorry that this stuck such horror in your mind. I think that we have all had a news story that has hit us this way and it is hard to get rid of. Peace be with you.
    Take each day as it comes, never bowing to the temptations of evil.
