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. This Palace was known to be one of Saddam's residence. Saddam named the Palace "Victory over America" in supposed rembrance of the First Gulf War and his belief that the Americans were defeated.
