LIKE many dissenters, Lahib Nouman

LIKE many dissenters, Lahib Nouman demonstrated against her government. She tore up images of government officials. She chanted slogans.

The difference was, she did it in Baghdad.

Time's Aparisim Ghosh tells how her dissent was never quite crushed, despite years of brutality. And Ghosh - with whom I collaborated years ago on sports stories - has also turned up something terrible in Uday Hussein's backyard. Stunning reporting.
