    Alleged spy seen in video calling Saddam 'our inspired leader' ILLINOIS -- Prosecutors say he spied on dissidents, reported to U.N. mission honeycombed with secret agents. By MIKE ROBINSON Associated Press Writer CHICAGO (AP) -- Jurors watched a video Tuesday in which a man accused of spying on Iraqi dissidents for Saddam Hussein's intelligence service described the dictator as "our inspired leader" and spoke scornfully of "American colonial imperialism." "A light has illuminated our path and our procession toward the struggle and the liberation," Khaled Dumeisi said in describing Hussein at an April 2001 birthday party for the dictator at...

    Bahrain expels Iraq diplomat for alleged blast link MANAMA, April 2 (Reuters) - Bahrain on Wednesday expelled an Iraqi diplomat it accused of having links to a blast that occurred near a U.S. Navy base in the capital Manama last week. The official Bahrain News Agency said the foreign ministry asked Iraqi First Secretary Nadim Jawad Ali to leave the kingdom because of his alleged ties to an Iraqi man suspected of carrying out the March 24 blast. There was no immediate comment from the Iraqi embassy. A small cooking gas cylinder exploded near the gateway of the headquarters of...

    AN accused Iraqi spy awaiting expulsion says he will fight Australian troops if they join a US-led war on his country. Helal Ibrahim Aaref, who has been told to leave Australia by Wednesday, told the Herald Sun he would have no option but take up arms. "I hope Australians don't go to Iraq," Mr Aaref said. "But anyone, from all the world, who attacks Iraq, enters my cities, enters my country, I fight him. "You know, Iraq has a long history, from about 8000 years, and all that time we are fighting enemies because Iraq has oil and resources." Mr...

    SADDAM HUSSEIN'S REGIME PROVIDED FINANCIAL support to Abu Sayyaf, the al Qaeda-linked jihadist group founded by Osama bin Laden's brother-in-law in the Philippines in the late 1990s, according to documents captured in postwar Iraq. An eight-page fax dated June 6, 2001, and sent from the Iraqi ambassador in Manila to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Baghdad, provides an update on Abu Sayyaf kidnappings and indicates that the Iraqi regime was providing the group with money to purchase weapons. The Iraqi regime suspended its support--temporarily, it seems--after high-profile kidnappings, including of Americans, focused international attention on the terrorist group. The...

    In the morning of March 11, 2004, Susan Lindauer woke to find five F.B.I. agents at her front door. After reading her her rights, the agents took Lindauer from her home in Takoma Park, Md., to the F.B.I. field office in Baltimore, where she was charged with having acted as an unregistered agent of Saddam Hussein's Iraqi government and otherwise having elevated the interests of a foreign country above her allegiance to the United States. ''The only visible sign of stress is that I'm chain-smoking,'' she said when I met with her recently. Forty-one and free on bail, she wore...

    AHMED HIKMAT SHAKIR IS A shadowy figure who provided logistical assistance to one, maybe two, of the 9/11 hijackers. Years before, he had received a phone call from the Jersey City, New Jersey, safehouse of the plotters who would soon, in February 1993, park a truck bomb in the basement of the World Trade Center. The safehouse was the apartment of Musab Yasin, brother of Abdul Rahman Yasin, who scorched his own leg while mixing the chemicals for the 1993 bomb.When Shakir was arrested shortly after the 9/11 attacks, his "pocket litter," in the parlance of the investigators, included contact...

    LONDON (Reuters) - A cache of guns, bugging devices and equipment that may have been used for torture has been discovered at Iraq's abandoned embassy in Britain, the country's newly appointed ambassador said on Wednesday. Scotland Yard confirmed "a number of firearms" had been recovered from the embassy in an upmarket area of southwest London but declined to say when. Dr Salah Al Shaikhly told BBC radio the arms haul, which dates to Saddam Hussein's period in power, included four machine guns, several Uzis and 10 handguns with silencers and had been found in one of the 20-odd safes at...

    On the surface there would seem to be little to unite the Aryan racialists of the neo-Nazi movement with the terrorists of radical Islam. To the neo-Nazis, Muslims are almost all members of ``inferior`` races; and to the Islamic terrorists, the neo-Nazis are almost without exception either atheists or members of fringe quasi-Christian sects. But the reality is that there has been close cooperation between Muslim extremists and Fascists ever since the founding of the Nazi movement in the 1920`s. For all of their differences, Muslim extremists and Nazis have always been united by a common group of beliefs and...

    MOSCOW: A senior Russian lawmaker on Wednesday said he suspected that US$3 million dollars stolen from the Iraqi Embassy in Moscow was intended to bribe Russian politicians in exchange for support of Saddam Hussein's regime. Dmitry Rogozin, chairman of the foreign affairs committee in Russia's lower house of parliament, told the Interfax news agency that embassies never keep such large sums of money on hand. "My theory is that this enormous sum was intended for political reasons, possibly for bribing Russian officials and politicians in an attempt to secure their support for the toppled Saddam Hussein regime," Rogozin said. Rogozin...

    The Iraqi Embassy said Tuesday that masked gunmen broke into the diplomatic compound overnight and stole more than $3 million in cash from a safe. The money had been brought to the embassy to pay staff wages and stipends to Iraqi students studying in Moscow, a Moscow police official said on condition of anonymity. The embassy, tucked away on a narrow street in central Moscow, has been working with a skeleton staff since Ambassador Abbas Khalaf left in early June for U.S.-ordered consultations in Baghdad. The front gate is guarded by a lone Russian police officer, and the few remaining...

    German police are questioning five men arrested after they seized the Iraqi embassy in Berlin claiming to represent a group opposed to President Saddam Hussein. There is intense speculation about the aims of their group, the Democratic Iraqi Opposition of Germany, and about whom it represents. Mainstream opposition organisations have described it as "obscure". The five - some of them armed - stormed the embassy on Tuesday afternoon, taking four hostages including the acting ambassador and his appointed successor. Elite German officers retook the embassy building in a lightning raid five hours later, without firing a shot. Motives unknown The...
