Saddam's Palaces Handed Over to a University
Fact of the Day

Some of the lavish palaces once used by Saddam Hussein to reinforce his all-powerful image have been handed over to educators. In September, three of Saddam's former palaces will become part of a university in Northern Iraq, housing an electronic agricultural library available to students across the country, administrative offices for the College of Agriculture and Forestry, and a faculty club with conference facilities. The project illustrates another way that Iraqis are transforming vestiges of Saddam's regime for the benefit of the new Iraq.
