Document http://126.96.36.199/Released/09-06-06/CMPC-2004-001648.pdf dated March/19/2003 is hand written order from Saddam Hussein to the governor of Iraq Central Bank to give his son Qusay Saddam Hussein and another crony named Hikmat Mazban Ibrahim a total of ONE Billion Dollars so it will be protected from what he called the American Aggression. Of course this money was meant to be smuggled to some foreign secret bank accounts for Saddam family. This money was found by the US troops shortly after the fall of Saddam regime and handed later on to the free Iraqi government.

1. Nine hundred and twenty millions American Dollars
2. Ninety millions Euros.
In order to protect it from the American aggression
Do what is necessary
President of the Republic
You are a Great American, JV!
Thank you : ). Do you remember the big truck that our troops captured shortly after the liberation of Iraq where they found many metallic boxes containing this one billion dollars?
Not s strong vote of confidence in the Euro. :)
I think I remember the story. It wasn't a billion they found, though, was it?
I have to search it up whether the truck contained a billion dollars or less than that.
LOL... good point :)
These Great Satan haters always prefer the Great Satan's greenbacks, with a recent example being Hezbollah.
You right "rightinthemiddle", it seems according the New York Times articles that not all the money was recovered by the US troops.
Nah, he was out of Euros because guess where most of the O-F-F bribes went!

Notice he uses royalty language, not "I," but "we."
Dear Mr. Hussein,
We appreciate your business with our most merciful bank. Unfortunately, we will require two forms of i.d. and the maiden name of your mother. Would you like to participate in our identity secure system? For only $4.99 a month we will notify by email or camel if any entity attempts to maliciously acquire your funds or access your account.
Warmest regards to you and Allah
Governor of the Bank of Iraq.

More good work jveritas. This document should be brought to the attention of the media even though they'll probably not report it. Every additional piece of info shows just how corrupt Saddam and his cronies were.

lol, you guys are killing me!
I'm sure their central bank was full of hezbo counterfeit.
Been waiting for you !
Please turn over your life savings over to me so that I may protect it from the Bush "steal from the poor to give to the rich" Cabal.
Nice job Joseph.
As always, great work. Thanks.
LOL - I also envisioned Dr. Evil after reading the headline!
Well.....this was sorta posted before, but whatever......
That's actually over a Billion dollars given the prices the Euro against the Dollar were going for at the time.
Saddam Hussein Rules Iraq $200,000,000,0000
Gift from Saddam $1,000,000.00
American Invasion - Priceless
But the post in it's entirety looked too familiar, which drew my comment.
IIRC, they recovered about 700,000 of it, which funded the initial temporary government and paid the salaries of the Iraqi military until it was spent.
errr....I meant 700 million.....
What an awesome find.
I guess they (sons) didn't have much time to enjoy their loot. Good.
Man I dont know what I would have done if I found the money...
Part of my brief against journalism is its insistence that the only thing that matters is what it wants to talk abut. And what journalism wants to talk about is how important the news is - thereby suggesting that nothing matters after it is no longer new. Nothing matters to them except what is so new that they have an information advantage over the rest of us.
They have no interest in actually informing, their only interest is in self promotion.
