Eric Maddox, decorated Army veteran and May 2016 graduate of the Executive MBA program assisted in the capture of Saddam Hussein in 2003. He will share his experience as an interrogator for a Special Operations Task Force in Iraq on the CNN series “Declassified: Untold Stories of American Spies” scheduled to air June 26 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
Maddox spoke at Olin’s Century Club lecture earlier this year and shared his interrogation tactics that led to crucial intelligence on Saddam Hussein’s location and his ultimate capture by U.S. forces. In an email, Maddox writes,
“The episode to air June 26 is called ‘Hunting Saddam.’ Last summer, CNN producers and crew came to my hometown and spent three days filming and interviewing. I have since been able to view the final cut and am really proud of the job they did.”
While assigned to a Special Operations Task Force in Iraq, Maddox conducted over 300 interrogations and collected the intelligence which directly led to the capture of Saddam Hussein.
