Turned out better for us. We got the rat. Katie Couric of course was hoping he escaped to Syria timely.

Dear Jason Webb of Reuters:

Google is your friend.

Sincerely.

AMERICAN MORNING

Aired December 5, 2003 - 08:19 ET

THIS IS A RUSH TRANSCRIPT. THIS COPY MAY NOT BE IN ITS FINAL FORM AND MAY BE UPDATED.

ANDERSON COOPER, CNN CORRESPONDENT

JUAN ZARATE, DEPUTY ASSISTANT SECRETARY, TREASURY DEPARTMENT: Thanks for having me.

Good morning.

COOPER: Let me ask, before the war began, Saddam Hussein is said to have removed $1 billion in cash from the central bank in Baghdad.

Where is that money now and — or how much of it has been recovered — and is some of it still being used, do you think, to fund terror?

ZARATE: That’s right. Saddam Hussein actually ordered his central bank to transfer over close to a billion dollars in U.S. currency as well as in euros. We’ve been able, with the good work of the Department of Defense and with our investigators on the ground to capture most of that, over $800 million, as well as close to 90 million euros. So we’ve captured most of that.

Asked by Aznar whether Saddam could really leave, Bush replied: "Yes, that possibility exists. Or he might even be assassinated."

Now, the Iraq invasion is beginning to make more sense. We invaded Iraq to keep Saddam from being assassinated so we could hang him. Makes perfect sense to me.

This conversation was almost a month before military operations started. Everyone knew the US was trying to get Saddam to leave Iraq. So what’s new?

More proof of Iraqi WMD.
