As Saddam Hussein’s regime falls, Democracy Now! talks to an Iraqi America man who opposed the war although his family had been brutalized by Hussein. Salam Al-Rawi’s father was tortured and murdered. His mother was jailed.
As for Iraqis around the world yesterday was a day of mixed emotions for Al-Rawi. Regime change in Iraq had occurred but questions about where Iraq heads next remain unanswered.
