Saddam’s Mass Graves

For the next two days, I will be in Hillah, to visit one of the larger mass graves in the country. All told, there are estimated to be 400,000 Iraqis and foreigners buried in mass graves, accounting for sizable portion of the 1 million Iraqis who went missing during Saddam’s regime. Do take a look at the USAID report on mass graves. Read the first hand accounts of Saddam’s purging of the Shias, and know once again that our error was not coming to Iraq sooner.
