For nearly two decades Ramsey Clark, the former US attorney general, has been linked with Iraq.

He opposed the 1991 Gulf war and campaigned against the ensuing UN sanctions.

Clark called for the impeachment of George Bush, the then US president, and was part of the legal defence team of Saddam Hussein, the late Iraqi president.

He has closely tracked the moral and legal issues of the unfolding tragedy in Iraq.

In this episode of Inside Iraq, we will try to find out what has motivated him to be such a consistent and continuing critic of successive US governments.

This episode of Inside Iraq aired from Friday, May 8, 2009.
