witness tothe horror of his insane life of debauchery excess and brutality andan experience for which he almost paid with his life on more than oneoccasion A note from the Author This book was written in 1992 originally it was1 000 pages long with even more facts and details than contained in thepages herein because of it s size the original publisher trimmed itdown to the 300 or so pages that it is today After the fall of SaddamHussein and his regime in 2003 the facts in this book were confirmed Many of Uday Hussein s employees found new masters over the years sincemy flight from Iraq some work for the US intelligence services somefor the UK but no matter how they may try to discredit me and my storythe facts remain and as you now know I had already put them on paper in1992 eleven years before the regime fell I did not have a crystal ballto know all these things I knew them because I was there that was mylife Uday s employees have admitted in the Western media to being Pimpsfor him they also admit to working as spies against him for the US andthe UK intelligence services in return for citizenship of therespective country what I ask is this If a man is willing to sellwomen to a man that he knows to be a sadist if he is willing to sellhis country and himself is it not then conceivable that he will sellhis soul and say anything for money I have paid a high price for myrefusal to co operate with the intelligence services the CIA inparticular after twenty years in the West I am still stateless Icannot return to Iraq because the new Government consider me acolaborator of the Hussein regime although while they were inoppossition to Saddam they found my book to be a useful tool against himand his regime Saddam while in power considered me a traitor I do notregret my decision to leave Iraq or write my story but I have notfound the Western governments to be as open and democratic as they wereportrayed to us in the Middle East In my search for a new counry tocall home I have found that those whose story is a fabrication aregiven the protection of the state as they are no threat money is theironly goal in life so they will not rock the boat while I who have anopinion and voice it openly that is probably my biggest problem amignored refused and while not told to leave am not made especiallywelcome either I am tolerated I do not nor did I ever seek fame Ihave not made money from my story and if I do it will go to charity Itamuses me how the tables turn when Saddam was in power my book was heldup in the US Congress and given as a reason for Saddam s removal nowthat Saddam is gone those that once used my story for their benefit havetried to denounce me I have been interviewed by the world s biggestand best names over 1 800 TV Print and Radio journalist s who do theirresearch and know who to ask for opinion the old guard who took pridein their work and valued their reputation While there are still sometrue journalists out there many work to order if their editor wants aspecific story they make it true or not there is no oversight Although it was never my intention this book has been used aspropaganda for the War on Iraq my intention when I wrote it was to openthe eyes of the world to the horrors and atrocities committed by theregime and to spur the Iraqi people into action It will always disturbme that the Iraqi people never had a chance to participate in The ArabSpring and depose Saddam and his regime themselves It may be a verydifferent place today if they had had the chance to do so Best regardsto all Latif Yahia
