A documentary I reported, along with French jounralist Michel Despratx, for Canal + in France, has been broadcast in much of the world, but never in the United States. It details Western–and particularly U.S.– complicity with the crimes of Saddam Hussein–such as his use of chemical weapons first against Iranian troops, then against his own Iraqi Kurds. Back then, of course, the U.S. was backing Saddam, their de facto ally, against Khomeini. Video one, to the right…

Part Two:In the late 1980’s Saddam also used chemical weapons as part of his genocidal campaign against the Iraqi Kurds..for which he and his confederates have been put on trial–Saddam, of course, no longer in the dock. His de facto American allies turned their back on those crimes. Watch second video, right….
