Exiles Update Just before the war started, All Things Considered spoke with an Iraqi exile who had participated in the failed uprising against Saddam Hussein in 1991. In that interview, Haider Hamdani told us about his intense desire to see an end to Saddam's regime. He said he was in favor of a U.S.-led war, but he worried that it would bring devastation to his country. He spoke about his fears for the people of Iraq, especially his own family. Now, his worst fears have been realised -- his younger brother was killed. Lynn Neary spoke with Hamdani last week for an update.
