Call him the devil's double, Saddam's son, all time winner of The Unluckiest Bastard contest or the CIA's headache. This is the profound story of the man forced to be the body double of the most hated man in one of the most notorious regimes of the last decades. After his escape from Iraq in 1992 more than 20 years ago, Latif Yahia still seeks asylum in many different European countries. Hunted down by the CIA and Udays henchmen for almost two decades, this is a man tired of running and evading. "If I knew then what I know now about the false democracies in the West, I would have preferred a bullet from Uday's gun, at least I would have been buried near my family in my country. Fuck the CIA and all the backstabbing governments obeying them." This man has been toyed around. And if you think this is something of the past, think again. His face made him the double, but in all those years he never bent to be the Devil. Written by MT
