Qusay Hussein

Qusay Hussein was an Iraqi government official and the second son of Iraqi dictator and convicted war criminal, Saddam Hussein. Qusay headed Iraq's intelligence and security services, his father's personal security force and the Iraqi Republican Guard.

Unlike his older brother Uday, who was known for his flamboyant, murderous public persona, Qusay kept a low profile. While certainly more reserved than his brother, he was still a central figure in his father's brutal 24-year rule, and was considered as ruthless and bloodthirsty as his older brother. Qusay ordered mass executions and torture to crush political opponents, and initiated the indiscriminant murder of prisoners as a means of relieving severe overcrowding in jails.

Qusay was being groomed as Saddam's successor, until the 2003 U.S. led invasion of Iraq brought an end to his father's reign of terror.
