America at a Crossroads: The Trial of Saddam Hussein
THE TRIAL OF SADDAM HUSSEIN, part of the AMERICA AT A CROSSROADS series, will air on October 12, 2008 at 10 p.m. ET (check local listings).
Produced by Great Projects Film Company, New York, THE TRIAL OF SADDAM HUSSEIN is a riveting, behind-the-scenes look at what really happened at the trial of Iraq's former dictator. With rarely seen footage and original interviews with Iraqi witnesses and officials, along with defense attorneys for Saddam and officials from the U.S. Justice Department's Regime Crimes Liaisons Office (RCLO), the office mandated to assist the Iraqi High Tribunal, THE TRIAL OF SADDAM HUSSEIN discloses a grossly mismanaged and political trial.
Luis Araya immigrated to Arlington, Virginia from Bolivia in 1966, when very few Latinos lived in the county. He reflects on the changes he has seen over the years and the influence of Latinos in Arlington today.
