Ali Hassan-al Majid, also known as "Chemical Ali," is in U.S. custody. U.S. officials recently learned he surived the April airstrike that was thought to have killed him. Ranked No. 5 on the list of most-wanted Iraqis, al-Majid earned his nickname for his alleged role in the 1988 poison gas attacks on Iraqi civilians. Haifa University professor Amatzia Baram and ABC News producer Omar Abdul Kadar join Neal Conan to talk about Iraqi reaction to al-Majid's capture.
