The Ace of Spades script
Synopsis: A captured Saddam Hussein and Kyle, a seasoned American interrogator must come to grips with the extraordinarily brutal events that force the question, was the monster Saddam born or created by circumstance? Based on a true events.

Glass the size of a large family portrait lines one wall.

Kyle fumbles to lay his mess of folders on the table and

pulls the metal chair out making an ear-retching noise. The

effect heightens the awkwardness of the two men's encounter.

Kyle sits across from SADDAM HUSSEIN. Face to face.

The battle of intellect begins.

SADDAM:

(stern)

Perhaps a conversation between two

such educated people will not be

useful...

Or successful.

Saddam, although a captive, is arrogant and confident.

Kyle calmly begins to flip through his papers as he tries to

keep his composure in front of a living legend.

KYLE:

(clears throat)

...let's begin, why don't we.

Would you consider your efforts

successful?

SADDAM:

When compared to other governments

I am not convinced my efforts are

any different, especially the

Americans.

Kyle notices Saddam avoids the question like a pro.

KYLE:

You see similarities in the actions

of the American government and

Iraq's?

SADDAM:

Of course.

Saddam waves his hands flippantly.

SADDAM (CONT’D)

Thirty million people live in

poverty in America, but this is not

consider a crime? I would never

accept that for Iraq.

KYLE:

What about your mistakes?

SADDAM:

(snarky)

Do you think I would tell my enemy

if I made a mistake?

Kyle’s voice deepens to keep from cracking but struggles with

the enormity of the situation.

KYLE:

I--I'm an enemy?

SADDAM (CONT'D)

SADDAM:

I do not know if you are or not,

but your demeanor is something I

can handle for now.

Saddam’s smug demeanor oozes from each word.

KYLE:

Is it the current system that's in

place that has you at odds?
