Re: Secrets Of The CIA
About six months before the initial invasion of Iraq, I attended a talk given by an Iraqi (A Christian) who now lives in the U.S., but was very concerned about the probable invasion of his country.
I learned so much from his talk, but one of the interesting things that he mentioned is that the CIA helped to violently overthrow Saddam Hussein's predecessor (who was Hussein's cousin).
When Hussein's cousin still controlled Iraq,
Hussein worked as a hit man for the CIA in Iraq, killing, or helping to organize the killing of Iraqis who were unfriendly to American interests.
It comes as no surprise that Hussein continued to kill those who went against him in any way when he did come into power.
