In this video produced by Democracy Now! on the 28th of December 2016, and translated by acTVism Munich volunteers into German, John Nixon, the CIA analyst who interrogated Saddam Hussein after his capture circa 14 years ago, reveals that much of what the CIA believed to know about Saddam Hussein at the time of the invasion was wrong. For example, Nixon’s interrogation of Hussein revealed that by 2003 Hussein had largely turned over power to his aides, so he could concentrate on writing a novel and that there was no program of weapons of mass destruction. These warnings, Nixon claims, were ignored by the highest authorities in Washington.

We republished it today to promote historical and contextual understanding of political issues.
