    when.

    Hussein and the Baathists helped direct much of the violent police and ethnic "actions" during his reign, I seem to recall.  Much of the power was turned around after the invasion, but I have read of ex-Baathists in similar places of power and influence to direct death squads and torturing of incarcerated people, as well.  To me, it had become a violent subculture within the larger society that was being wrought, perhaps taken advantage of by the British and USA governments or military, certainly.
