Saddam's atrocities exposed on video

by Mark5019 / January 24, 2006 10:23 PM PST

Responding to accusations Saddam Hussein is being "demonized" as his trial resumes, a U.S. group has released videotapes documenting torture and murder ordered by the former Iraqi dictator.

The videos, are graphic and should not be viewed by children, warns the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies
Television news understandably will not broadcast these videos, but they are nevertheless an important record of Saddam Hussein's crimes against humanity," said FDD President Clifford May.

May believes it was necessary to "set the record straight" after Saddam defense attorney Ramsey Clark, the former U.S. attorney general, complained to American media that the former leader was being "demonized."

"Saddam committed demonic acts for years ? while much of the international community turned a blind eye," May said. "History will record that Saddam was among the most brutal and evil tyrants of the Middle East. This is something we must not forget as Iraq attempts to establish a new society, one that guarantees freedom and fundamental human rights."
