Homeland Security Returns Saddam Hussein’s Gold-Laden Sword to Iraq

Saddam Hussein

When the U.S. invaded Iraq, Saddam Hussein’s personal office was looted.

One of those items was a gold-laden, 43-inch sword with an embellished blade and Arabic writing to the Iraqi ambassador, the Associated Press reports.

The AP wrote that an American combat historian brought back the sword, which DHS said was a gift to Hussein, not a battlefield weapon that could bee deemed a war trophy, according to the AP.

The sword sold at an auction for $15,000, but it was later seized by DHS.

The AP reported that the sword has been returned to Iraqi authorities.
