Unearthing the Legacy of a Dictator: Iraq's Reign of Terror
Recorded on July 22, 2004
Location: The Heritage Foundation's Allison Auditorium
After 35 years, Saddam Hussein's tyrannical regime came to an end,
but the history has yet to close the book on his terrible mark on
the world. The sandy plains of Iraq are beginning to yield their
tragic secret: 270 reported mass graves with the estimated remains
of over 400,000 people already discovered - a horrific crime
against humanity only surpassed by other tragedies like the Rwandan
Genocide of 1994, Pol Pot's killing fields in Cambodia, and the
Nazi Holocaust of World War II.
Join us as we unearth the shocking truth of "Saddam's Mass Graves"
and hear first-hand from a survivor who came to the brink of death
at the hands of Hussein's killers.
DVDs of the complete 58-minute documentary will be available
after the program.
