This was one of Saddam's Palaces that was hit by a JDAM missile. The video below is narrated by a soldier surveying the place. I have seen this palace and it totaled.
Palaces at Camp Slayer on the man made lake. This is a boat house and the Perfume Palace is in the background.
Palace on the Iraqi Survey Group's compound, (now called Camp Slayer) next to BIAP, in Baghdad. Almost completed when it caught a JDAM in its belly. Yet another amazing example of just how much Oil for Food program cash Saddam siphoned off for his own pleasure. Keep in mind that there are about 50 of these palaces throughout Iraq, all built with these funds..
