| Saddam Hussein
| Character Information
Saddam Hussein was the leader of Iraq during the Gulf War. He was the target of an assassination attempt by Erin, but survived because of Krusty's interference.
During the Gulf War, Erin was on a mission to assassinate Saddam Hussein. She was temporarily distracted when she and Krusty spent a night of passion together in her tent, but in the morning Erin left Krusty behind in the tent and resumed her mission to assassinate Saddam.
When Krusty caught up to Erin, she was aiming a rocket launcher at Saddam and literally had him in her sights. Krusty protested that she couldn't kill Saddam because he was half of Krusty's act. Just as Erin was about to fire, Krusty tackled her, making her miss and ruining her mission.
While investigating a noise in the attic, Homer Simpson found an old copy of Newsweek with a cover story titled "Why America Loves Saddam Hussein".

Behind the Laughter
Saddam Hussein was the fifth President of Iraq, serving in this capacity from 16 July 1979 until 9 April 2003. A leading member of the revolutionary Ba'ath Party, which espoused a mix of Arab nationalism and Arab socialism, Saddam played a key role in the 1968 coup that brought the party to long-term power. He remained in power after the Gulf War (1990-1991), but was deposed and captured in 2003 during the Iraq War. Saddam was tried and convicted of crimes against humanity and was executed in 2006.
