SADDAM IN 'TERROR TAPE' (British tape)
sky news ^ | 2/5/04

Posted on 02/05/2004 5:35:38 PM PST by knak

New footage has been released purporting to show Saddam Hussein paying large sums of money to a terrorist group.

Liberal Democrat peer Baroness Nicholson says the footage is "incontrovertible proof" of the former Iraqi dictator's links to international terrorism.

It appears to show the former Iraqi President plotting crimes and paying money to members of an international terrorist group.

Baroness Nicholson says the group of men in the footage looked after Saddam's chemical and biological warfare.

The footage given to Sky News was reportedly looted from one of Saddam's palaces.

There has been no independent confirmation of the tapes and Sky News cannot verify their veracity.

However, Baroness Nicholson says there is no doubt the footage highlights Saddam's links to terrorism and chemical weapons.

"This is incontrovertible proof of Saddam Hussein's involvement in international terrorism," she said.

There's no way the White House didn't know this tape existed a few days ago.

GWB really is one heck of a poker player.

I am not sure how much this, if true, will help. We already know Saddam was paying families of suicide bombers and the Dems are unfazed. This terrorist group he is pictured with is connected with Osama then it will help. If not it, I'm afaid it will fizzle.

If this tape is proved genuine, The Dems #1 Campaign issue has just been totally completely and utterly destroyed.

Guess we now know why Dubya picked this Sunday to appear on Meet the Press and face questions about Iraq and why we went to war.

Could it be that once again the Dimbos have misunderestimated Dubya's strategery.

The coalition has found plenty of evidence and proof of WMD's... they just haven't found 'large stockpiles' of actual weapons... except for something minor like ricin

Lib Dems are a political party - Britain's 3rd major party, a "peer" is what they call a member of the House of Lords, and Baroness is her formal title. Here's her bio from the Lib Dems: http://www.libdems.org.uk/index.cfm/page.whois/section.people/wid.166/wgroup.peer

Why do you need "incontrovertible proof?" Saddam admitted it publicly, repeatedly bragging about support for terrorists, offering and delivering $25,000 per successful job.

One of W's favorite tactics is the rope-a-dope. Let your enemies come out and make all sorts of wild accusations, call you a fool, call you a failure. Then when you get them all out there with their heinies hangin' in the breeze, spring the trap on 'em.

Of everything I heard today in George Tenet's speach was his announcing that they had proof of secret negotions going on between Saddam and North Korea,

After listening to that speech live and then hearing the media, pundits and dems discuss it, I felt I was in the Twilight Zone. What speech did they hear? They plucked one line out (We never said Iraq was an imminent threat), acted like that was the entire gist of his message, and THEN they said that the Bush administration had lied about saying there was an imminent threat!

He isn't playing poker, he is playing chess. In poker, a lot is bluff. In chess it is getting in a position to take someone out even if they can see it coming.

Did you see the article a couple days ago on GWB's time at Harvard Business School? The poker playing was a bit of an arcane reference, I'll grant you, but go find it -- it's well worth it -- and you'll see what I was referring to. (Search for "GWB HBS MBA".)

Ex-Nicaragua Leader Voices Saddam Support


Saturday December 20, 2003 2:31 AM


By ISIDRO LOPEZ


Associated Press Writer


MANAGUA, Nicaragua (AP) - Saddam Hussein still has at least one friend abroad: Former Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega expressed support for the ousted Iraqi leader, saying Friday it would be a ``barbarity'' to force him to stand trial under U.S. occupation.

SNIP

Ortega traveled to Baghdad to express support for Saddam, who was facing a U.S.-led military buildup before the first Gulf War. Ortega met again with Saddam in 1993, saying he hoped to help end the country's international isolation.

THEY NEVER MET A COMMIE THEY DIDN'T LIKE...


Campus radicals supported the Panthers. They organized mass protests in support of the so-called "New Haven Nine." Hillary was right in the thick of it.

By the time she entered Yale Law School in 1969, Hillary was already a radical celebrity on campus. Life magazine had featured Hillary in a piece titled, "The Class of ’69," which showcased three student activists whom Life’s editors deemed the best and brightest of the year. A line Hillary used in her Wellesley College commencement speech appeared under her photo: "Protest is an attempt to forge an identity." (2)

At Yale, Hillary helped edit the Yale Review of Law and Social Action – a leftwing journal which promoted cop-killing and featured cartoons of pig-faced police. (3)

A series of hard-Left mentors introduced Hillary to the brass-knuckle realities of revolutionary activism. As a Wellesley undergraduate, she met and interviewed radical organizer Saul Alinsky, whose Machiavellian tactics she admired. Hillary’s senior thesis supported Alinsky's call for class warfare. (4)

At Yale, Hillary found a new Svengali, in the form of leftwing law professor Thomas Emerson, known around campus as "Tommy the Commie." Emerson recruited Hillary and other students to help monitor the trial of the New Haven Nine for civil rights violations. Hillary took charge of the operation, scheduling the students in shifts, so that student monitors would always be present in the courtroom. She befriended and worked closely with Panther lawyer Charles Garry. (5)

Some believe that the enormous pressure exerted by the Left helped ensure light sentences for the New Haven Nine. Whether or not this is true, the punishments were mild.

"Only one of the killers was still in prison in 1977," reports John McCaslin in the Washington Times. "The gunman, Warren Kimbro, got a Harvard scholarship and became an assistant dean at Eastern Connecticut State College. Ericka Huggins, who boiled the water for Mr. Rackley's torture, got elected to a California school board." (6)

Hillary’s defenders argue that she played no "significant" role in the New Haven Nine’s defense. This is semantic hairsplitting. Obviously, Hillary was less "significant" than Charles Garry or "Tommy the Commie" Emerson. But Hillary served as a trusted lieutenant to these movers and shakers. Moreover, she had a national profile as a campus activist. Hillary was no rank-and-file student protester, as her apologists claim.

Indeed, Hillary’s work for the Panthers won her a summer internship at the Berkeley office of attorney Robert Treuhaft in 1972. A hardline Stalinist, Treuhaft had quit the Communist Party in 1958 only because it was losing members and no longer provided a good platform for his activism. (7) "Treuhaft is a man who dedicated his entire legal career to advancing the agenda of the Soviet Communist Party and the KGB," notes historian Stephen Schwartz. (8)

The defense of the New Haven Nine marked Hillary’s initiation into the sinister underworld of the hardcore, revolutionary Left. To my knowledge, Hillary has never publicly renounced nor apologized for her role in that movement.
