Capturing Saddam: The Unlikely Man Behind the Hunt for Saddam Hussein


As the situation in Iraq and Syria heats up this month, KPR Presents goes back to 2003 and the capture of Saddam Hussein.  Eric Maddox is the unlikely soldier who spearheaded the hunt for the then-president of Iraq.  He tells the story of how he went from being a Mandarin Chinese interpreter to finding Saddam Hussein's hiding place in this April 16th, 2014, lecture sponsored by the University of Kansas School of Business.  His story is currently being made into a movie, Operation Blacklist, and is the subject of a book, Capturing Saddam.
