Perhaps the most feared and hated man of the modern age, Saddam Hussein remains the leader of Iraq despite internal rebellions, a CIA-backed coup, and the Gulf War of 1990. Brought to video by PBS, this Frontline production is the direct result of producer Greg Barker's months of attempts to acquire special access to film in the streets of Iraq. The final product is 60 minutes of secrets and double-crosses, plots, and terrorism from the master of deceit. Interviews and profiles highlight Saddam's rise to power through sheer brutality and an unrivalled aptitude for deception.
