Saddam Hussein is known as most brutal dictators of the last one hundred years. Over a million people died in his government mandated massacres, wars and imprisonment. The United States Government would eventually invade Iraq and turn him over to the then newly formed government of Iraq. Saddam would be tried for his crimes and hung. His two sons, Uday and Qusay would be killed in raids by US soldiers. But his three daughters as well as his wife, Sajida Khairallah Talfah would escape the country.

Talfah was a cousin of Saddam and the two had five children together. She is currently wanted by the current IRaq Government on allegations that she financed Sunni Muslim Insurgant groups against the government. Rumors persist that she may either be in Syria or Qatar. There was also speculation that she may have passed away as far back as 2015. Questions remain, where the is the former first lady that stood by as her husband terrorized millions of people.
