The creep's name is Sattam Hamid Farhan Al-Gaaod. He and his family own (owned?) the Al-Eman network of companies in Iraq. Multiple ties to the Oil for Food scandal according to Duelfer report.
He was "one of Saddam's most trusted confidants in conducting clandestine business transactions." He also had a close partnership with Uday Hussein.
I'm still sorting through the details but this changes the slant of the story about Carroll's rescue...
Will post more as I have it... Wish I could print the entire Duelfer report and read it for myself but it's way too long....
I missed the rerun, but it sounds great.
The Fox guys with the exception of whining Juanita apparently did a great job.
"I expected the Russians to be the Russians."
Evil men don't change when their country changes names.
One wonders how much WMDs components, labs and other stuff the Russians have sold to Iran, Iraq and Syria.
Pulitzer Prize award winning work.
Hi again!.....I was just thinking about Hoekstra and some of the others who attended the intelligence summit (organizers and some of the guest speakers), and wondered if maybe they might be added to the list of contacts? Has anyone already suggested? Possibly could do an introduction e-mail containing the addy to jervitas' site where all that have been transcribed are posted. I'd be happy to gather addresses and if there is anything else I can do to help you, please advise. Also, I was wondering if you are putting some sort of reply addy at the bottom for anyone who may decide they want to be removed from 'the list'?
I am disabled, home almost 24/7, and as long as my computer holds up, will be happy to assist in this project! If you've 'got it handled', I'll understand too. Just looking to keep busy!
Hi again to you too...It sounds good to me but I'm just a sender of the emails to these people and I try to list them for everyone on each new thread. Please contact Peach and talk to her, she knows much more about this than I. The more the better as far as I can see. Happy Easter.
Hmmm...amazing...glad TPTB allowed these docs to be put out there for translation. Eye opening or better yet...what our President knew and told us all and the evil MSM kept writing total BS, calling our President a liar. There's NO way with these docs can they with a straight face lie to us further...of course they can try, but we now have these translated docs to throw in their lying faces. Thanks, Jveritas. God Bless... ;o)
Unfortunately Pulitzer is only given for liberal journalists who trash the USA.
God bless you too Shield.
Our relations with Russia aren't that complex: never trust the Communists. That would include Putin.
One problem with the letter posted here. The address for the "AeroGlob" company is phoney. The address listed is the World Trade Center (A hotel, entertainment complex, and business center) located at 12 Krasopresnenskaya Naberezhnaya. Office 601 Entrance 3 for the address the letter lists is the representative office for the Canadian company SNC LAVALIN International (A subsidary of Black and Veatch - a US contractor). They have been located there for quite some time. Also, the name of the "Russian" is either an incorrect translation or completely made up.
The only "AeroGlob" I could find in Russia is located in St. Petersburg. They don't appear to be in the same type of business this letter indicates.
Whoops - Typo! Actually the office (607) is NOT the Canadian company, but rather a mobile phone company and they too have been there a while. That whole section is mainly Western companies, Russian tourist agencies, and mobile phone companies.
It is not only this letter but other letters in this particular document asking for money payments to AeroGlob for the "special materials" they delivered to the Iraqis.
That's pretty interesting regardless. Something tells me they were using a fake address, or maybe getting their correspondence sent to a "neutral" place. What is very interesting is this "AeroGlob" is supposed to be a registered Russian company, but it doesn't show up in the business registers. Very interesting!
Thanks for the ping, RaceBannon!
Please FReepmail me if you want on or off my miscellaneous ping list.
Again, thanks so much for your work on this.
Gee, Russia can't be trusted? Is anyone surprised by that?
The Russians violated the embargo? I'm shocked!
Your winnings, sir.
Show me where this points to the Kremlin.
Sell them all the parts they want. Until they learn how to fly it won't matter.
From the late 1990s they got them back in the air. They were regulars violating the Southern No Fly Zone.
