Report: Saddam Husseinís Son Plotted London Assassination Attack

Saddam Hussein's son Uday planned to carry out an attack in London to assassinate the leader of an Iraqi opposition group in April 2000, it is being reported.

According to the U.K.'s Times of London newspaper, a new Pentagon study based on documents seized during the Iraq war reveal an aborted plot by Uday Hussein's elite paramilitary group — the Fedayeen — to kill London-based Ahmed Chalabi, head of the Iraqi National Congress.

Documents show that Fedayeen's orders were to carry out assassinations and bombings in London, the Times reported.

While the study showed no link between Saddam Hussein's regime and Al Qaeda, it does detail the former Iraq dictator's support for Middle Eastern terror groups, including those linked to Al Qaeda.

Also in the report are memos showing Uday ordered officials to “start planning special operations in the centres of the traitors’ symbols in the fields of London / Iran / self-ruled areas [Kurdish northern Iraq]”, it was reported.

Good enough for me. After 9/11, that's good enough for me... Saddam WAS a terrorist and I didn't really need this study to tell me that.

I dont believe this post. Before we invaded, Iraqis were happy and flying kites and had healthcare. Michael Moore said so..
