Here are some pictures of my colleagues and me at Al Faw Palace---one of Saddam's former palaces. It was immaculate. It was built by him in 1991 in honor of his soldiers that regained the Port of Al Faw from the Iranians in the 1984 Iran-Iraq war. All over the walls inside is written, "Victory and glory to the warriors who freed the city from the enemy, the persians." We, of course, have control of it now, but will soon be giving it back to the government of Iraq, I'm sure.
