Tariq Aziz: Saddam Hussein’s Right Hand Man


Remember Tariq Aziz? He was Saddam Hussein’s former foreign minister. After the Americans invaded Iraq, he gave himself up to U.S. forces thinking it would save him and his family. However, he has been in prison since. He was arrested, convicted of complicity in executions that took place in 1992, and jailed for 15 years.  He was lucky – given what happened to Saddam. He could have been executed too.

He is still loyal to Saddam and says that the world is WORSE off without him!

He is a great interview with Tariq Aziz in the Guardian: http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2010/aug/05/iraq-us-tariq-aziz-iran
