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.

SADDAM:

It works for America to a large

degree, but one party is not good

for Iraq. Multiple parties will

cause too much commotion. The

people here does not accept only

one idea. They will have to be

forced to accept it.

KYLE:

Then that would spoil the root of

the Ba'ath party. They were the

dominant ones.

SADDAM:

I wish there were political parties

other than Ba'ath. Because of you,

the only political parties in Iraq

today are the ones with the

weapons.

Kyle wants to jump down Saddam’s throat but remains calm.

KYLE:

Does a leader gain greatness

through achievement or demand

greatness through fear?

SADDAM:

Fear will not make a ruler and will

not make people love a ruler. Love

comes through communication.

People will love me more after I

pass than they do now.

Kyle looks down to keep track of his pre-interview tasks.

KYLE:

But you've suppressed them for

decades.

SADDAM:

I do not believe so. My people

love someone for what they have

done. I have done many things. I

concluded a peace agreement with

Barzani --

KYLE:

The Kurds?

SADDAM:

Yes, in ‘70. I nationalized the

Iraqi oil, supported the war

against Zionist, won the war

against Iran, survived the Gulf War

and lived through a boycott for

fourteen years. Does it still

exist?

KYLE:

No.

Saddam nods. He holds, straightening himself.

SADDAM:

Despite all these hardships endured

by the Iraq’s, one hundred percent

of the people voted for Hussein in

the last elections. They still

supported me and your government

removed me.

Saddam begins to become agitated.

KYLE:

Where did you go when hostilities

began?

SADDAM:

Why are you retracing my steps.
