Former Iraqi president Saddam Hussein’s granddaughter Hareer Hussein Kamel spoke about her new book on her home country, in an interview filmed at an undisclosed location and released on Monday.

She revealed she felt Hussein had made some errors of judgement during his tenure, particularly with his family.

“My conscience makes me admit that relying on family members only was one of the key mistakes that led to all these things. I was not the only one to suffer from that. Iraqi nationals should know we, family members, have suffered from this. The decision to empower the whole family, bound by the common interests and loyalty, was wrong,” Hussein Kamel said.

On December 30, 2006, Saddam Hussein was executed by hanging on the first day of Eid ul-Adha (Islamic Holiday) at ‘Camp Justice’, a joint US-Iraqi military base, after spending three years in custody.
