Report: CIA Seizes Iraqi Intelligence Records

A published report says the U.S. Central Intelligency Agency has seized a large cache of records in Iraq about its intelligence service, weapons procurement and paid foreign agents. The Washington Post says the documents are spurring U.S. investigations into how Iraq purchased weapons and paid foreign nationals to work on behalf of Saddam Hussein's government.

The newspaper quotes unidentified U.S. officials as saying Iraqi files include names of nearly every Iraqi intelligence officer, names of foreign agents, agent reports and evidence of payments made to buy influence in the Arab world and elsewhere.

The officials declined to name individuals or countries involved. But one official said recipients included prominent personalities in high positions in Arab and other countries who took money, as they publicly defended Saddam Hussein.

In another report, the Washington Post says former Iraqi deputy prime minister Tariq Aziz has said Saddam misjudged the initial ground assault at the beginning of the war, believing it was a trick, and did not order a counterattack. The newspaper says Mr. Aziz has told U.S. interrogators the Iraqi leader was convinced by Russian and French contacts that he could avoid or survive a ground invasion.

The former senior Iraqi official has been undergoing questioning since he surrendered to U.S. authorities in April, about two weeks after the fall of the Baathist government.

Well, desciphering the Iraqi documents with the names of American traitor democrats will be easy but the CIA needs many more folks who read French to get the detail on who Saddam was paying in Paris.

Oh, sure, "Chirac" is easy to read but it is the details that that will be key. The NYT has already said that it will be unable to print any of these reports because the are going to allocate most space to the the Atlanta golf club that won't let women in.

I think the "findings" should get an appropriately public hearing............Like the UN.

NO 'back-channel' slaps-on-the-wrist.
