Actually Saddam wasn't just a freind of America becuase of the Iranian hostage crisis. He was a CIA agent since he was twenty years old. In 1959 Saddam was part of a CIA orchestrated six man plot to kill then prime minister Abd al-Karim Qasim because Qasim had backed out of the Baghdad Pact and began isntalling communists in his government.
