Debriefing the President The Interrogation of Saddam Hussein By : John Nixon
What Saddam told John Nixon during the conversations he had with him
after his capture in late 2003 and early 2004 was to make Washington

used by the Bush administration for going to war.

But in the ensuing weeks, he learned that the West had vastly misunderstood both him and his role as a determined foe of radical currents in the Islamic world, including Sunni extremism. And this was to prove a very expensive mistake indeed.
