Top-secret Iraqi intelligence documents found in Baghdad show that Russia funneled spy secrets to Saddam Hussein and that Moscow was still training Iraqi spies last fall, in violation of U.N. sanctions, reports say.

The captured documents also show that the Kremlin gave Saddam lists of assassins who could do "hits" in the West and that Iraq and Russia signed deals to share intelligence and help get "visas" so agents could go to Western countries, the London Telegraph reported.

Our "allies" had best be back-pedaling and retracting as fast as they can, cause the truth is going to burn them bad.

It's no wonder why France, Germany, and Russia didn't want us going in there.

If I recall correctly, on Fox & Friends this morning, the tease was that since Reporters had found the information the governement would have to do something about it.

The implication (to me) was that if the USG had discovered the paperwork they would have burried it in the interest of "can't we all get along?" with our friends the Russians.

Why do I think they might be right? Too many years under Clinton, perhaps? Or more likely, Bush's refusal to persue the many crimes committed by the Clintons?

Oh noooooo!

This demands serious consequences. The U.N. must pass a resolution!

I Agree With You!

Scott Ritter is a Traitor, he should be tried for Treason before a jury of his peers, then taken to the Gallows and Hung.

Isn't it always Nice the way The TRUTH comes out of the Darkness and into The Glorious Light?!

Even if it comes through the Socialist Left News Media.

Maybe, just maybe after All these years they are finally waking up and smelling the Camel Dung along with the Russian, French and German Euro-Nazis!

Very Interesting Developments, to say the least.

More Dirty Laundry Will Be Exposed...Guaranteed.

You too? It's almost as good as when Yuri Andropov was packaged as a Western liberal.

I want someone to do a Nexus/Lexus timeline on what Putin was saying publically and what they were doing behind the scences according to the dates on these documents. That would be Glaring I imagine.

If true, they could raise grave doubts about U.S.-Russian relations and President Bush's belief that he looked into Russian President Vladimir Putin's "soul" and knew he could trust Russian leader.

They had to knock Bush, didn't they? Well, Putin was head of KGB and is no doubt a master at hiding what he wishes to hide. He is not our friend.

I find the diploma part amusing – as if the Iraqis didn’t know who was attending spy school. Nothing like leaving a paper trail. Imagine one framed and hung in an office. “His father and I are so proud of Abu. He graduated from the Victor Makarov School of Spying with top honors.”

So to recap: The U.S. was accused of attacking Iraq for the oil when in reality, the economic benefits in Iraq dealings lay with the Russians, Germans, and French. In addition ALL of these countries failed to abide by the very sanctions on Iraq they had voted to establish.

But America is the evil-doer and France, Russia and Germany are the peaceful nations. They don't seem to mind selling all types of military equipment and even nuclear material to repressive dictatorships. If we cannot get our allies to aid us in the war on terrorism, it could last a couple of generations.

I hope the Bush Administration can find innovative ways to punish these deceitful A$$ES because this type of behavior cannot be tolerated.

"Better yet don't pick anymore friends because FOX in Mexico isn't any better."

I believe it was Harry Truman who said "If you want a friend in Washington, get a dog."

They seem to have saved the scariest part for last:

A document dated March 12, 2002, says the Russians warned Iraq that if it refused to comply with the United Nations, it would give the United States "a cause to destroy any nuclear weapons," the Telegraph said.

I haven't read any more about that weapons grade plutonium find for awhile--wonder what Russia might know about that?

Yeah, I think Saddam's half-brother was wearing that tie as he crossed over into Syria yesterday

(he was incognito).

No one.

But you know we have to be "validated" by the Media, don't you?

The implication (to me) was that if the USG had discovered the paperwork they would have burried it in the interest of "can't we all get along?" with our friends the Russians.

Lawrence Eagleburger dealt with the issue on Hannity and Colmes tonight.

He said, "If I don't stop this, we will be at war with everyone in the world
before I'm through."

There comes a point, he said, where there is really nothing you can do about it.
We can say we don't like it and be tough in economic relationships and our
bilateral relationships.  We can't be responsible for every bird that falls out of
the sky.  We can grump and harrumph at them and make them unhappy they
have irritated the hell out of us, but there are some things we can only go so far with.
