Baghdad resident remembers the first days of the war

What were the people of Iraq thinking and feeling as American forces began moving through their country? Many were thrilled at the downfall of Saddam Hussein, but fearful of an unknown future. We talk to Anass Al Bayati, an Iraqi living in Chicago who was living in Baghdad as US soldiers swept in. Al Bayati is now the Director of Programs & Administration at Chicago's Iraqi Mutual Aid Society. Photo: AP
