Image from Camp Slayer, an area formerly known as the Radwaniyah Presidential Site, which was just one of Saddam's many palaces. This area was off-limits to UN weapons inspection teams prior to the start of the war. The site is located about 9 miles east of central Baghdad, and is adjacent to 'Saddam International Airport'. The compound itself is 9.3 square miles in size, surrounded by three artificial lakes. This was a favorite playground of Saddam and his closest associates. Image of the children's playground that lays across the lake from the Victory over America palace. Saddam build the play area for his grandchildren. Coalition Forces refer to the playground as Flintstone village.
