Saddam Hussein was the fifth president of Iraq, a position he held from 1979 until his capture in 2003. Hussein was responsible for the invasion of Iran in 1980 and the invasion of Kuwait ten years later. After incorrectly being accused of hosting weapons of mass destruction, the US invaded Iraq and ultimately caught Hussein. He was tried by the Iraqi Interim Government for crimes against humanity, eventually being found guilty and being sentenced to death by hanging.
