A Top Secret Document Dated January 23, 2003 From Iraqi Intelligence: A Plan for Action in the Event of a Regime Downfall
The London-based Saudi daily Al-Hayat published a top secret document  found in the archives of the Iraqi intelligence services. The document is a plan to be acted upon in the event of a regime collapse. The events which have taken place in Iraq since the occupation carry a striking resemblance to the instructions detailed in the plan. The following is a translation of the document; click here to view a copy of the document as it appeared in Al-Hayat:
"Top Secret" "To all state agencies listed below/" "Secret emergency plan:" "-Security [Agencies]" "-Military Intelligence" "-Secret Services""
"Following on our secret letter No. (3870) of 1/19/2003. In the event of the downfall of the Iraqi leadership in the hands of the American, British, and Zionist forces, God forbid, it is incumbent on all the members of the agencies listed above to act in accordance with the instructions listed below:"
"Looting and burning of all state agencies connected with our directorates and other [government agencies]" "Changing residence from time to time" "Destroying power generating stations" "Destroying water installations" "Mobilizing of dependable elements and bringing them into mosques" "Joining the religious centers in Najaf" "Joining the nationalist and Islamic parties and groupings" "Cutting off internal and external communications" "Purchasing stolen weapons from citizens" "Establishing close ties with those who are returning from outside the country" "Assassination of imams and preachers of mosques." "Copies to:" "Secret Service Bureau - Baghdad" "Secret Service Bureau - [unclear]" "Secret Service Bureau - [Basra]"

Funny how the Dems and Antiwar crowd seems to forget about Saddam emptying the jails.
I don't think those released are going to willingly tern themselves back over now that Saddam is gone.
Yes it is all going as the Glorious Leader (Saddam) planned.
- Allow the Infidels to defeat our forces within 10 days.
- Allow the Infidels to take my gold and cash
- Allow the Infidels to bomb and occupy my palaces.
- Allow the Infidels to capture or kill my top aids.
- Allow the Infidels to destroy vast amounts of my weapons and munitions.
- Allow the Infidels to discover mass graves.
- Allow the Infidels to humiliate Iraq before the Islamic World.
- Allow the Infidels to force me and my sons to hide like rats.
All this so we can kill one American Soldier a day.
Now all Saddam has to do is wait for the DNC to help him get Iraq back.
I think our plan is working better than Saddam's plan.
What is your plan?
Oh, Good God. They're already ordering pumps and generators and such for sewage treatment plants and power plants etc, even though adequate plans often didn't exist and reverse engineering was necessary. TWO MONTHS after the war. We're as far along in reconstruction as would normally be the case 6 months or a YEAR after a conflict like this. Our performance has been remarkable. Don't believe the NYTIMES!
