Qusay Hussein, who has died aged 36, was the younger son and heir apparent of Saddam Hussein; he commanded Iraq's intelligence and security services and two elite military units, the shock troops of the Republican Guard and the praetorian Special Republican Guard.
Qusay Hussein was born in 1966 in Baghdad, the second son of Saddam Hussein and his cousin Sajida, whom the dictator had married in 1963.
Qusay's emergence in a more political role became apparent in 2001 when he was elected one of two deputy commanders of the ruling Ba'ath Party's military bureau; he also became a member of the Ba'ath Party regional command.

Born in 1966, the second son of Saddam Hussein, Qusay was the heir apparent, groomed to succeed his father as ruler of Iraq.
Under the last years of the Hussein regime, he had, however, taken on increasing responsibility as head of all Iraqi intelligence and security services, the Republican Guard, and the Special Republican Guard, the units responsible for the regime's protection and its special weapons programs.
Qusay is reported to have ordered the prison executions in 1988-89 of more than 2,000 inmates, and was subsequently given broad powers by his father to quell the 1991 Shi'a uprising that followed the Gulf War that year.

 Obituary: Qusay Hussein Independent, The (London) - Find Articles
Qusay used his university law studies to justify the torture, massacre and destruction of opponents, and also oversaw Iraq's notorious detention centres.
Qusay was "very cool", said a former Iraqi official who worked in his father's palace and knew Qusay for 18 years but defected after falling out with him when Qusay objected to the official inviting "dirty clothed, foul smelling" tribal and country people to the "clean palace" to receive an award ordered by his father.
Qusay's true love, according to insiders, was Lyla, a local, well- educated teacher of outstanding beauty from a prominent Shia family.

 Killing Hussein's Sons: The Nuremberg Precedent ...And The Criminalization Of The US Ruling Elite
There is little doubt that Uday and Qusay Hussein, the two sons of former Iraqi president Saddam Hussein killed by US forces in a house on the outskirts of Mosul July 22, were morally and politically reprehensible figures.
Having said that, both the means by which Hussein's sons were liquidated and the manner in which the killings were greeted by the American government and media speak volumes about the nature of the US intervention in Iraq and the character of the American political establishment.
The Hussein brothers would not have found it a great challenge to turn the tables on their prosecutors and expose the hypocrisy and criminality of the Anglo-American operation in Iraq.

Photographs of Saddam Hussein's feared sons laid out in plastic body bags were released by the US today in a bid to convince sceptical Iraqis that neither would follow their father into power.
Qusay's face did not show any sign of wounds but he had also grown a beard, possibly in an effort to make himself less easy to recognise.

Last month's capture of Hussein's closest aide, Hussein Abid Hamid Mahmud, in a house in Tikrit, the former leader's hometown, gave a new impetus to the hunt for Hussein and his two sons.

 IslamOnline - Iraq... The Aftermath
A few journalists working in Iraq cautioned that while the killings of the two Hussein sons were a blow to Saddam himself, it was unlikely to affect Iraqi resistance.
(Hussein himself broadcasted an audio tape in which he praised his sons for their “martyrdom” and urged other Iraqis to fight to the end.) Analysts and terrorism experts argued on popular news talk shows, but in the midst of all the ranting the voice of Iraqis was deafened, locked out of the debate.
Qusay Hussein, on the other hand, removed himself from the limelight but is said to have had a flair for killing anti-Saddam elements.

An internationally recognized expert on the Middle East and the Saddam Hussein regime, Coughlin spoke to NRO Wednesday about the elimination of Saddam Hussein's sons, Uday and Qusay.
Uday and Qusay were key members of Saddam's regime, and by taking them out U.S. forces have demonstrated to the Iraqi people that they are serious about eradicating the remnants of Saddam's regime.
Qusay was certainly quieter and more conscientious, but he was also more feared.

 Editorial, The deaths of Uday and Qusay Hussein
The deaths of Saddam Hussein's sons and heirs, Uday and Qusay Hussein, are controversial mostly for the wrong reasons and raise a number of important questions that are mostly ignored by the mainstream corporate news media.
Not even their own family is unanimous on the question, considering Uday's personal role in the murders of his sisters' husbands, and considering that the guy who sold Uday and Qusay to their enemies most probably is the owner of the house in which they died, who is one of their father's cousins.
Qusay, a drunkard who ran the former regime's atrocious prisons, took charge of the bloody repression of the Shiites after the first Gulf War.

 Qusay Hussein coordinated Iraq special operations with bin Laden's terrorist activities
The important thing of the recent development that should be a cause of tremendous worry is that Saddam Hussein empowered his son, Qusay to deal with the day-to-day relationship with bin Laden and coordinate the Iraqi special operations with bin Laden's terrorist activities.
He is now thought to have overcome his initial rejection of Saddam Hussein, whom he regarded as an exploiter of the Islamic cause rather than a true believer, and is considering the offer of a bolt-hole from which he can continue to mastermind terrorism on a global scale.
After 911 the Administration decided Hussein was too dangerous to leave in power (He was a lightening rod for anti-American beliefs and actions and had a record of brutality and of using any means available to achieve his goals).
