This post by Michael Totten should not be overlooked. Take a few minutes to read what he learned during travels through Iraqi Kurdistan. Things he learned about how Sadaam Hussein's minions tortured and killed their Kurdish citizens and the memorials to them that are open to the public today. Engrossing photos accompany this story.
"When you enter the museum you will walk through a long and winding hallway. The walls are covered with mirror shards. Each represents one of the hundreds of thousands of Iraqi Kurds murdered in the genocidal Anfal campaign. A river of twinkling lights lines the ceiling. Each represents one of the five thousand villages destroyed by Saddam Hussein."
