Documents relating to Saddam Hussein’s death have been released.
Documents in the file relating to Saddam Hussein and his death have been released, showing how out of touch and ignorant to his situation he was in the run up to his capture and death.
John Nixon, analyst with the Central Intelligence Agency from 1998-2011 interrogated Saddam Hussein before his death and the reports have been released.
Time magazine have reported, Nixon said:
“When I interrogated Saddam,“he told me: ‘You are going to fail. You are going to find that it is not so easy to govern Iraq.’”
He says Hussein was confident that the American’s would fail due to a lack of knowledge about Iraq and the surrounding areas, their cultures.
“They are going to fail in Iraq because [Americans] do not know the language, the history, and [they] do not understand the Arab mind.”
Saddam Hussein was the leader of Iraq from 1979 until he was captures by American soldier while he was in hiding. He was subsequently hanged after his trial which found him guilty of countless war crimes.
“Saddam’s leadership style and penchant for brutality were among the many faults of his regime, but he could be ruthlessly decisive when he felt his power base was threatened, and it is far from certain that his regime would have been overthrown by a movement of popular discontent.”
America have interfered in the Middle East for decades, under the guise of ‘humanity’, often their exploits were in pursuit of power, or oil for themselves.
Nixon says that while he believes Saddam Hussein had his many faults, he was not “on a mission to blow up the world, as George W. Bush’s administration had claimed to justify the invasion.”
Saddam Hussein was executed on 30th December 2006 at Camp Justice, an Iraqi army base.
