Documentary Shines Light on Saddam's Torture

As the world prepares for the criminal war trial of Saddam Hussein and Chemical Ali, Brad L. Maaske holds a secret weapon. His documentary, which details his quest to discover the truth of those who suffered under a dictator’s merciless rule, is now available for the world to see.

More than mere facts and figures, the work brings to life faces, names, and stories that encompass the unimaginable 1.3 million lives exterminated by Saddam’s reign of terror. Maaske prepares to stun and shock with Weapon of Mass Destruction: The Murderous Reign of Saddam Hussein.

Frustrated by the lack of media coverage about Saddam’s evil empire, real estate broker Maaske left his lucrative career to buy a video camera and begin a quest to uncover the true story and give voice to those who cannot speak—the Iraqi people.  

Maaske’s journey led him around the world, from California to Iraq—to the gravesites and into the souls of the families shattered by the dictator. From interviews with the prosecution team trying Saddam Hussein and Chemical Ali, to the framers of the Iraqi Constitution, to interviews with Gen. John Custer (second in command of Central Command) and Gen. Steve Whitcomb (in charge of Distribution of Supplies in Kuwait), to the Iraqi orphanages, to patrols with the Iraqi and U.S. forces in Iraq, Weapon of Mass Destruction provides the world with long-overdue evidence that millions of people were living in a perpetual hell inflicted by Saddam.

Weapon of Mass Destruction reveals:

  • The span of Saddam’s rise to power, eventual demise, and progress in Iraq   
  • Never-before-seen footage of chemical attacks, murders and torture leveled against the Kurdish population of Iraq spanning more than two decades
  • Intimate, never-before-revealed footage of the heroes of September 11
  • The heart-wrenching interview with the parents of fallen soldier Daniel Unger and his memorial service in Maaske’s hometown in California

Weapon of Mass Destruction is hard-hitting evidence that Saddam Hussein was himself a weapon of mass destruction—and that we were right to bring him down for good.
