NASHVILLE, Tenn. - This month marks the ten year anniversary of the capture of one of the world's most feared dictators, Saddam Hussein. Its something State Senator Mark Green (R-Clarksville) won't forget. In 2003 Green was an Army doctor with the Special Forces team that captured Saddam. Green was asked to stay the night with the former dictator to make sure he didn't kill himself. Green says Saddam was talkative and the two spoke through an interpreter for six hours. Green details the historic encounter in his book "A Night With Saddam". He says the former dictator viewed himself as superior but was surprisingly charming. While history will remember the capture, Green says we shouldn't forget the soldiers who made it possible.
