The George Washington University National Security Archive has posted a series of reports on interviews and conversations between Saddam Hussein and his FBI interrogator. The declassification of these records was originally reported in the NY Daily News. James Gordon Meek had already released some of the reports and has an interesting four-part series on Saddam’s interrogation at the Mouth of the Potomac.

I’ve been going through them and they make an interesting read. He jumps between lies, delusions, often defending and boasting about his monstrous rule. He even makes a few accurate observations: ‘HUSSEIN stated that the United States used the 9/11 attack as a justification to attack Iraq’. Well, duh. For a great window into the mind of one of the most monstrous dictators of our time, take a look.
