    WHEN THE IRAQI REGIME collapsed in April 2003, few observers saw reason to mourn the loss of Saddam's brutal dictatorship. While a great deal of information about the former Iraqi regime's assorted atrocities has been uncovered since the invasion, newly-released documents go even further in demonstrating its manifest depravity. One such document is CMPC-2003-012666, a letter from Qusay Hussein that directs as follows: Transfer all Kuwaiti POW's / a total of 448 captured Kuwaitis who are located at the Al-Nida Al-Agher Prison and the Intelligence / General Center and Kazema Prison in Al-Kazema, to make them human shields at all...

    Senator: At Least One Foreign Country Assisted the 9/11 Terrorists Senator Graham knows where the bodies are buried>>> On 11 December 2002, the Senate and House Intelligence Committees released portions of their joint report on intelligence failures regarding the September 11 terrorist attacks. The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer, on PBS, reported on the release that day. After asking her guests a bunch of predictable questions, and receiving predictable answers, guest host Gwen Ifill asked Senator Bob Graham, Chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, a good question and got an amazing answer. GWEN IFILL: Senator Graham, are there elements...

    Translated Text of an Iraqi Document Concerning Kuwait POWs As the opening date of Operation Freedom neared, Qusai Saddam Hussein-one of Saddam’s bloodthirsty sons, made arrangements to move captured Kuwaiti prisoners into critical locations, to serve as “human shields”. There were 448 Kuwaitis, captured during the First Gulf War ,when Saddam made his infamous incursion into Kuwait. By the terms of the UN Cease Fire agreements –signed by Iraq on 3/03/91- all Kuwaitis were supposed to have been freed and repatriated without delay. Clearly,this never happened ; and sadly,the ultimate fate of these 448 helpless captives is unknown. CMPC-2003-012666 Republican...

    Saddam's nephew finds sanctuary in Syria By Con Coughlin in Baghdad (Filed: 18/05/2003) A leading member of Saddam Hussein's family has been discovered living in Damascus under the protection of the Syrian government after fleeing Iraq last week, The Telegraph can reveal. Fatiq al-Majid, one of Saddam's nephews, entered Syria last Monday after leaving Iraq at the al-Rabie'a checkpoint, which is under the control of American troops. Majid was given a Syrian visa and made his way to Damascus, where he is now living in exile. Majid confirmed his presence in Damascus when contacted by telephone by The Telegraph last...

    <p>Baghdad -- In the final days before Baghdad fell, Saddam Hussein's son Qusai issued a series of military orders that sent thousands of elite Republican Guard troops to their certain death in the open countryside.</p> <p>According to accounts provided to The Chronicle by more than a dozen Iraqi military officials -- some of them still hiding from American forces -- the orders exposed the core of the Iraqi military to devastating U.S. air attacks and left the capital's defenses markedly weakened.</p>

    AD DWAR, Iraq, Dec. 20 — Before his capture in a coffinlike underground bunker outside this bleak town, Saddam Hussein spent months moving furtively among 20 or 30 nondescript safe houses in the Sunni Muslim heartland, where a tightknit network of family and clan sheltered him and brought him news from across American-dominated Iraq, American military officials say. With that, he used a word-of-mouth system of couriers to carry his instructions back to a cluster of Baathist cells that helped him guide the anticoalition insurgency, the Americans say. The 66-year-old Mr. Hussein traveled on foot, by small boat along the...

    NBC’s Richard Engel offered a more sweeping scolding than did other reporters of the U.S. for laying out for video cameras the bodies of Uday and Qusay Hussein. He called the decision “controversial” and insisted “all of this has been quite offensive to Islamic sensibilities here. Muslims are generally buried in a simple white shroud without any embalming process at all.” On Friday’s NBC Nightly News, Tom Brokaw asked Engel in Baghdad: “Richard, as you well know, there’s fresh video tonight as well of the bodies of Saddam’s two sons after they were cleaned up by Army morticians. We want...

    <p>WASHINGTON -- Uday Hussein is said to have been so sadistic that when he wasn't raping women, he fed enemies to his dogs. His younger brother, Qusay Hussein, was considered more stable, but just as murderous, as head of Iraq's repressive security apparatus and the country's second-most powerful figure.</p>

    The Iraqi crisis develops on the scenario, which can hardly be called the best for the current world order. If the UN Security Council was a board, which could assist in coming to a certain consent, the current world order would be preserved for long, in spite of the fact that it seemed to be rather anachronistic after the events of September 11th. However, the UN proved its inefficiency again: this organization is incapable of finding a compromise to stop a superpower. It can be clearly seen that Russia and China realized their risk, when they rejected the American administration’s...

    An American war on Iraq looks a good way off. But the shadow-boxing has begunGet article background THE sword suspended over the head of Damocles hung, legend says, by a single horsehair. That hanging over the head of Saddam Hussein is only a little more secure. This is a man on whom the world's pre-eminent power has, in effect, declared war. Indeed, unlike most war declarations, George Bush's fatwa against him is personal. America's stated aim is not only to divest Iraq of its weapons of mass destruction (WMD) but also to change the regime in Baghdad. If he were...
