International relations, political economy and history from an unlikely source

The FBI released more documents of its interviews with Saddam Hussein prior to the dictator's transfer to Iraqi control and ultimate execution.

The information released in the documents is golden. Saddam Hussein discusses many issues, ranging from international relations, to political economy and development, to history and personal relations.

He was clearly squeezed out of every available piece of information before being sent to the gallows. His accounts will be incorporated into many books on Iraqi and Middle Eastern affairs in the future I am sure.

Here is the link to 27 declassified FBI documents for those of you interested.
