The Lost Secrets of Saddam Hussein

Hosted by

The Iraqi government says it's interrogating the person whose cell-phone pictures of the execution of Saddam Hussein found their way to TV and the Internet. While there's still controversy over the execution, but the consequences of Hussein's death go beyond disputes about the way he was killed. Billions of dollars are missing, mass graves are still uncovered, and countless victims will never see a murderer held to account.  We look at the history of atrocities and the mysteries that Saddam took to his grave. How much help did he get from western governments and corporations? Will Iraq's current leaders pursue those questions or let them go unanswered?
