The Saddam Oil Bribes: the complete al-Mada list

Baghdad: Al-Mada in Arabic 25 Jan 04 p 4

[Corrected version: Unattributed report: "Presidents, Journalists, and Parties Received Millions of Oil Barrels From Saddam"; all names as transliterated; correcting numbers, dates throughout text]

[FBIS translated text]

Al-Mada has obtained a set of tables that provide he names of individuals and firms for whom quantities of crude oil have been allocated during the various stages of the Memorandum of Understanding, as outlined in the documents of the Oil Marketing Company, a public firm affiliated to the Ministry of Oil. The lists include the names of individuals, companies, parties, groups, and organizations for which the former regime allocated quantities of crude oil. The quantities are specified in details in the various stages of the Memorandum of Understanding. The allocation, as the documents indicate, started with the third stage of the Memorandum of Understanding. This is because in the first and second stages the allocation was made to companies that owned refineries (end users) [preceding words published in English]. This means that the information that we are publishing here concern entities that do not own refineries (non-end users) or middle companies.

Under this interesting title appear many names that have nothing to do with oil, its distribution, storage, or sale and that are not known to be interested in oil or to have any affiliation to oil companies. They include the Russian Orthodox Church and the Russian Communist Party.

In the case of individuals, the matter becomes even more curious. If we understand that journalist Hamidah Na'na, who defended the former regime, is interested in prolonging his independent journalistic project through an oil deal, it is strange to find on the list the name of Khalid, son of late President Jamal Abd-al-Nasir; former Jordanian Parliament member Tujan al-Faysal, the current President of Indonesia, the son of the Syrian Defense Minister, and the son of the Lebanese President.

Since its acceptance of the Memorandum of Understanding, or what is known as the Food for Oil Program, the defunct regime has turned this memorandum into a dirty business and a political game to fund his secret purchases of weapons, expensive construction materials for the presidential palaces and mosques, and luxurious items for extravagance. It also turned the contract for selling oil into the biggest operation in modern history for buying loyalty and influence and squandering the homeland's wealth.

Since that time, rumors have been rife about the coupons that Saddam signed for Arab and foreign figures to provide them with crude oil in exchange for helping the regime break free of its international isolation, finance the campaign to lift the economic embargo on it, and brighten its image.

But the regime has corrupted the human and ethical values of the world campaign to lift the unjust sanctions. The embargo did not ultimately target the regime. It targeted our poor and middle class people. We have seen that whenever the international campaign to lift the embargo came close to achieving its goals, the regime, through its conduct and recklessness, pushed the issue back into the dark tunnel. In the meantime, the regime turned the country into an open and rich table that only needed a good show, people with a hearty appetite, and obedient servants.

One of the qualities of the fascist regime that existed in our country is that it had no courtesy and it always needed others to feel superior. In an attempt to lift the embargo on it, the regime spoiled even those who had goodwill and noble goals in defending the Iraqi people. The regime knew only one policy; that is, the policy of opening its purse. This explains why the regime gathered around it people whom the regime wanted to beg from it so that it would feel morally superior to them.

If one has a chance to listen to some Ba'th officials, who thanks to their village ethics do not fear to be insolent, one will hear a lot about Iraqi visitors in recent years. These visitors came to defend us but also to cash the price. We can confirm this information. The Ba'thists themselves leaked this information about the Arab and foreign visitors. They mentioned some of the names that appeared on the lists, including the name of Labor Party member George Galloway.

The case of George Galloway is truly tragic. This man defended the Arab just causes but as soon as he got closer to the Iraqi regime he was corrupted. Galloway was dismissed from the Labor Party for this reason. He defended himself strongly and criticized the British policy, Tony Balir, and Bush, but I don't think that he can dismiss the Iraqi documents that incriminate him fully.

Apart from the abovementioned lists, Al-Mada also obtained six applications submitted by the Executive Director and the Acting Executive Director of the Oil Marketing Company to the Oil Minister to endorse the crude oil deals. The name of Galloway appeared in these documents not as a contract owner but as someone to whom these quantities belong. Galloway hides behind a company that does not belong to him personally or that has a nationality that is different form his nationality.

The method by which these contracts were concluded sheds light on the mechanism through which the coupons and the presidential sublime will were dispensed. This is why we would like to explain it here, particularly since some names appeared on the lists as single names, such as Samir. It is not known if it is the name of a person or a company.

1. A contract dated 29 December 1999. The name of the purchasing Finnish company is Fortum Oil and Gas-oy [name in English as published], but there is a reference to the name (Burhan al-Chalabi) and another reference that goes as follows: For Mr George Galloway. The quantity is 6 million barrels.

2. A contract dated 10 July 2001. The name of the purchasing company is Aredio Petroleum and (Fawwaz Zurayqat), who is Jordanian. The following written remark appears: For Mr George Galloway. The quantity is 4 million barrels.

3. A contract dated 6 August 2001. The name of the purchasing company is Middle East Advanced Semiconductor Inc, which is Jordanian (Fawwaz Zurayqat). There is a reference that the deal is for Mr George Galloway. The quantity is 3 million tons [as published].

4. A contract dated 3 May 2001. The purchasing company is the same as above and it is Jordanian (Fawwaz Zurayqat). The same reference appears that the contract is for Mr Galloway. The quantity is 2 million barrels.

5. A contract dated 12 December 2002. It includes the same details mentioned above. The quantity is 3 million barrels.

6. A contract dated 3 June 2002. It includes the same details mentioned above. The quantity is 3 million barrels.

The words (for Mr George Galloway) appeared six times, but they are not all the same. Two times they appeared in connection with the names of French and Finnish companies and the rest are Jordanian in the name of Fawwaz Zurayqat. All these deals have been approved and signed by the Oil Minister, who added the word "approved" along with the date.

The interesting thing is that Galloway's name appears in the tables throughout the stages of the Memorandum of Understanding along with the quantities received and the name of Zurayqat. What is going on? It is clear that Galloway is the one who obtained the famous coupon through his political ties and the services that he rendered to the regime. His name was mentioned in the contract perhaps to remind the minister since the company does not belong to him. Maybe this is the mechanism that applies to everybody who obtains a coupon, whether individuals, parties, or political organizations which have nothing to do with oil. The coupon carried the signature of the head of the regime and the quantity that he wants to dispense. The rest is taken care of by the phony, or real, companies. Maybe people like Galloway get only a generous percentage of the deal by way of commission or sell the coupon in return for money.

The table lists vertically the names of countries and the names of the beneficiaries, be they individuals or companies. Horizontally, it lists the stage of the Memorandum of Understanding and the allocations given to beneficiaries in millions of barrels. It is noticeable that some names were incomplete and some others arouse suspicion. For instance, how can we understand the following name: President Sukarno's daughter? After several names from Indonesia the name Megawati shows up. At any rate, many interesting names appear in these tables, and we hope that they will suffer the misery and the scandal that they deserve.

For brevity purposes, we decided to provide the names along with their allocated quantities without mentioning their distribution in the stages of the Memorandum of Understanding, as outlined in the original tables.

I googled this about Vincent:

United States: Samir Vincent received 10.5 million barrels. In 2000, Vincent, an Iraqi-born American citizen who has lived in the U.S. since 1958, organized a delegation of Iraqi religious leaders to visit the U.S. and meet with former president Jimmy Carter.

And, then, we find this:

Many people are mobilizing to effect a change in this failed international policy. Iraqi-born U.S. citizen Samir Vincent, who has lived in the United States since 1958, calls action on the embargo a “political dead end.” He and Dr. Joseph Ritchie, also a private citizen, decided to go down a different road—away from politics and politicians, toward the world of religious belief and influence. The two businessmen prevailed upon Dr. Billy Graham to invite the Iraqi religious leaders to visit several sites in the United States—and later, London, England.

Vincent, a Chaldean Catholic, was with the delegation throughout the U.S. visit. Their travels—to Boston, Detroit, Atlanta, Plains (Georgia) and New York City—began inauspiciously with an hour-and-a-half grilling by U.S. immigration officials. Dr. Ritchie placed his private plane at the service of the three Iraqi churchmen.

Later, he remarked that he was most inspired by their interfaith partnership in this quest to end the sanctions. When he is asked if things are moving in a good direction, Dr. Ritchie says, “Anyone of goodwill who listens for an hour to the entire scenario wants to end the embargo, but Americans listen to soundbites. We have to deliver the message in soundbites.”

Another good site for checking up on folks, and more importantly, the vast networking involved, is Namebase.

It took the Fed's five years to catch Eric Rudolph in an area smaller than the State of Rhode Island.

Bury a few 55 gallon barrels and maybe a tanker truck anywhere in an area the size of the state of California and then have someone try to find them. Heck, they are still finding buried German arsenals from the Western Front in Russia today.

We know he did have them at one point in time, then "Poof!" there is no record of what happened to them.

Liberal thought is infectious upon weak minds. The WMD rant is nothing more than a political move to damage Bush, and those who support it have succumbed to the thought manipulation of the left.

WHo's going to organize the Google search team and see what other ties we can find? Too big of a project for just one person.

BTW prints to 16 pages in hard copy form!

Another good site for checking up on folks, and more importantly, the vast networking involved, is Namebase.

Yes, and NAMEBASE shows a link between Samir Vincent and Brent Scowcroft and John Sununu.

Which link will the media report???? The one to Jimmy Carter or the one to John Sununu?

The graph that opened when I clicked Scowcroft's name opened into larger graph with Kissenger at the center.

What in the heck is that all about?....New World Order?

I noticed this company listed under Switzerland:

"5. Klinco/12 million."

I wonder if there's any relationship to a former President, and a current Senator???

I think the color of the lines represents how the people are involved with one another...they don't have to be directly related. For example, NIZAR HAMDOON seem to have some interesting ties. It could be as simple as two people's names appearing in a book together...this site does seaches off a look of diferent sources.

Probably not, but some of those Swiss companies have just got to be Marc Rich operations. There is just no way he wasn't a player in this.

You know, if you add these numbers up, there are far in excess of one BILLION barrels of oil at issue here.

Does anyone know Iraq's actual production capacity, or what percentage of its output this would represent? It sounds like a hell of a big amount to keep secret for so long.

Interesting to note the multiple references to 'Communist', 'Socialist', 'Labor', and other worshipers at the altar of totalitarianism. Saddam was extravagant in his support for his fellow believers, wasn't he?

The WMD rant is nothing more than a political move to damage Bush, and those who support it have succumbed to the thought manipulation of the left.

You put that very well, and I agree with you.
What puzzles me, however, is the Bush administration's
willingness to play along with the game.
It would seem there is a lot going on that we do not yet know about.

Brent Scowcroft was against going into Iraq, if memory serves.
I certainly hope it was not for nefarious reasons, he used to be one
of the good guys.

"Glenn Beck said yesterday that "everybody" was on the list except Bush, Cheney, and Halliburton, LOL."

Don't be surprised if Dems, through a 'Seven Degrees of Kevin Bacon' game, make some kind of tedious link between them.

Can you research this company for me......see what you can find....I don't speak Finnish.

1. A contract dated 29 December 1999. The name of the purchasing Finnish company is Fortum Oil and Gas-oy [name in English as published], but there is a reference to the name (Burhan al-Chalabi) and another reference that goes as follows: For Mr George Galloway. The quantity is 6 million barrels.

Thanks buddy.

I was holding my breath to see if Halliburton was named.

Every on of the above named has issued a statement......I DID NOT RECEIVE OIL BRIBES FROM SADDAM HUSSEIN, NOT ONE TIME.

I don't speak Finnish either, but this I found:

Fortum Oil and Gas Oy is a large European oil and gas company headquartered in Espoo near Helsinki, in Finland. The company has operations in several European countries including Finland, Belgium, Norway, Sweden and the Baltic Rim, and major venture operations in Saudi Arabia and Canada. Fortum runs two oil refineries in Finland and focuses on the development of pro-environmental petroleum products.

Fortum Oil and Gas is a subsidiary of Fortum Corporation, one of the Nordic countries' leading energy companies. The corporation encompasses four sectors: Oil and Gas, Power and Heat, Operation and Maintenance, and Engineering. Net sales totaled US $9 billion in 1998. The stock listed parent company Fortum Corporation is resulting from the merger of two major Finnish companies, Neste Oy and IVO Oy. The company's World Wide Web site can be accessed at www.fortum.com.

I've looked at this list over the last few days and I have been surprised that Germany or Germans seem absent.

Maybe their easy "marks" were so socialistic that they demanded the resources be given to their government?

Quickly scrolling down the list is a real shocker, not that the names are recognizable, since in all but a few cases I haven't a clue who or what they are. What is stunning is the detail. Somebody wanting to fabricate a document like this would spend lots of time just trying to come up with plausible names. There's just too many names to make "forgery" your first thought.

I thought they had done that for naive, insipid socialist Kumbaya principles. In the end, they did it for money. Feh.

BTW, this being true, IMO they should be removed from office. In the good old days they would have been tarred and feathered.

I don't know when Conyors went to Irag, but it was Bonior, McDermott and my Congress critter Mike Thompson (who completed the trio), that went over to visit Saddam just prior to the start of the Iraqi War. Somehow he always escapes mention with the other two.

Same here. But, knowing that Bush is a good poker player, I would not be surprised if around the time of the Democratic Convention, we capture Osama, Mullah Omar, find vast stockpiles of WMD and get a live confession from Saddam that he had them all along.

Wishful thinking, but I bet two out of the four will happen that way.

Yeah, that's one of the few names I recognize.

I don't doubt it's for real --- and I think this is just a tiny chunk of an iceburg that is floating over the horizon. We haven't even seen the tip of all that is beneath the surface right now.

I'm sure it has not skipped your attention that millions of barrels of oil were allocated from Saddam to terrorists and terrorist organizations ... yet the damn DNC as if one voice claim Saddam was no threat to US or the world. Time for DNC extinction ... before they succeed in making America extinct.

There are a lot of FReepers working on connecting the dots of the names on this list across several threads.

If we could somehow bring it all together into one thread it would be a very powerful tool.

Absolutely. My thought, however, is that these 270 names are just from one document, if I understand correctly. There were truckloads of documents collected in the early weeks. I read somewhere recently that only a fraction of that has been translated, let alone analyzed. Because I read it somewhere doesn't make it true, but it does seem plausible. There are a thousand trails to follow here, and many of them will lead to vile crimes and shenanigans.
