Iraq: National Security Archive posts intelligence reports on Saddam Hussein's reign

The National Security Archive has posted a series of declassified U.S. intelligence documents and other U.S. agency reports on Saddam Hussein's human rights abuses, one of which is the subject of the first trial of Saddam.

The Archive's posting gives a preview of the evidence that the U.S. government may be providing to the trial process. The collection contains a number of documents produced by U.S. agencies over the last thirty years concerning the Iraqi regime's policies and activities directed at maintaining itself in power and eliminating or neutralizing opposition to the regime.
