Deviation of Iraq’s Baath Party (part three)

In the fourth episode, former Iraqi minister and diplomat Salah Omar al-Ali reveals for the first time the details of the argument between him and President Ahmed Hassan al-Bakr, in which al-Ali threatened al-Bakr's life. Also in this interview, al-Ali accuses Khairallah Telfah, Saddam Hussein’s uncle, of being the driving factor behind the deviation of the Baath Party in order to “strengthen the influence of his clan in power," which eventually led to al-Ali’s resignation.
