Everyone knows Saddam Hussein was a tyrant, but the invasion of Iraq by coalition forces in 2003 revealed the full extent of the terror apparatus Saddam used to maintain power. In a gripping hour, we examine the roots of this dictator-madman--how he used violence beginning in his teens to achieve his ends--and talk to victims of his terror. And we see how his ministry of terror became a family affair: his two sons, Ouday and Qusay, intended to establish a reign of terror that would last generations.
