Finding Saddam: Eric Maddox’s Real-Life Story

EO Seattle welcomed Eric Maddox, the US Army interrogator who through hundreds of interrogations, not only developed his own technique to gain cooperation from prisoners, but also unveiled an insurgency network linked directly to Saddam Hussein.

In this presentation, Finding Saddam, Eric discussed his five-month deployment to Iraq in 2003 in which he was a rookie interrogator assigned to the most elite task force in the world. For his work he was awarded the Legion of Merit, the Defense Intelligence Agency’s Director’s Award, and the National Intelligence Medal of Achievement.

Eric is the author of Mission: Black List #1, the inside story of the search for Saddam Hussein.  His recounts are the inspiration for the movie, Mission: Black List, starring Robert Pattinson (Hello Twilight fans!) as Eric, set to start filming in the Spring of 2013. There is no doubt that members will be hanging on to his every word.
