Topic - Saddam Hussein
A special intelligence adviser to Army Gen. David H. Petraeus during the 2007 troop surge says the terrorist leader now ruling over large swaths of Iraq and forcing Christians to convert to Islam has long been the most elusive big game for the U.S.
Sifting through my files in pursuing a particular topic, I happened upon an unrelated old clipping from The New York Times op-ed page. A column it was, dated March 22, 2004, by William Safire.
Sen. Rand Paul's general opposition to interventionism is underscored by Iraq's sectarian and tribal convulsions 11 years after the U.S. invasion.
The CIA failed to provide adequate warning of the recent Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant military incursion into Iraq despite having a significant presence of agency officers in the country.
In what's being hailed as a foreign-policy triumph of the Obama administration (which needs every morsel of good news it can get), the Syrian government gave up all its "declared" chemical weapons stockpile.
So who lost Iraq?
The president of Iraq's ethnic Kurdish region declared Tuesday that "we are facing a new reality and a new Iraq" as the country considers new leadership for its Shiite-led government as an immediate step to curb a Sunni insurgent rampage.
A timeline of key events in Iraq, beginning with the 2003 U.S.-led invasion up to April 30 national elections. More than 22 million voters will be eligible to cast their ballots to choose 328 lawmakers out of more than 9,000 candidates in the first nationwide elections since the U.S. army withdrawal in 2011.
An Iraqi man who once helped anti-government forces try to overthrow Saddam Hussein pleaded not guilty Friday to multiple state counts of attempted murder after authorities say he detonated a homemade explosive device outside a Social Security Administration office in Arizona in 2012.
An Iraqi man who helped anti-government forces try to overthrow Saddam Hussein in Iraq and is charged in state court with bombing a Social Security building in Arizona was sentenced Monday to five years in federal prison for felony weapons possession.
An Iraqi man convicted of trying to ship arms and cash to Al-Qaida in Iraq doesn't consider himself a terrorist for his time battling U.S. soldiers in Iraq. Instead, he compares himself to the Americans who fought for independence from British colonial rule in the 1770s.
As a U.S. visa program for Iraqi interpreters nears its end Monday, one of those former military aides fears that he — as well as thousands others like him — will be left behind to face the wrath of insurgents who view him as a traitor amid intensifying sectarian combat in Iraq.
When then-Secretary of State Colin L. Powell went to the United Nations to rally countries behind America's intent to invade Iraq, satellite photos were shown of trucks being loaded with deadly chemicals. Mr. Powell, Congress and President Bush believed that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction. With that belief, along with the atrocities committed by Iraqi strongman Saddam Hussein upon Iraqi citizens, America occupied Iraq, but could not find the weapons of mass destruction. As a result, all of the liberals called Mr. Bush a liar and condemned him ad nauseam for what they called an unnecessary war.
As the only Republican left in Congress who voted against going to war in Iraq in 2002, I have been asked whether there are lessons that apply today to the situation in Syria.
His aides wanted to delete it from his speech, and President George W. Bush was mocked by ESPN and Meryl Streep for it afterward. But when he used his 2004 State of the Union address to raise the issue of steroids in baseball, it boosted the issue to the top levels of politics.
"These terrorists and their bombings increase our love for our Imams and increase our determination to sacrifice ourselves for the sake of our Imams," said Mr. Hussein, who came to Baghdad five days ago from the southern city of Nasiriyah.
