Saddam's bodyguard warns of secret
By GORDON THOMAS*
Herald Sun - Sunday 02-feb-03
SADDAM Hussein's senior bodyguard has fled with
details of Iraq's secret arsenal.
His revelations have supported US President George
W. Bush's claim there is enough evidence from UN inspectors to justify going
Abu Hamdi Mahmoud has provided Israeli intelligence
with a list of sites that the inspectors have not visited.
AN underground chemical weapons facility at the
southern end of the Jadray Peninsula in Baghdad;
A SCUD assembly area near Ramadi. The missiles come
from North Korea;
TWO underground bunkers in Iraq's Western Desert.
These contain biological weapons.
William Tierney, a former UN weapons inspector who
has continued to gather information on Saddam's arsenal, said Mahmoud's
information is "the smoking gun".
"Once the inspectors go to where Mahmoud has pointed
them, then it's all over for Saddam," Tierney said.
Tierney, who has high-level contacts in Washington
that go to the White House, said the information we publish today on Mahmoud's
revelations "checks out, absolutely checks out".
Mahmoud was a mem ber of the elite unit that protects
It is called the Murasiq Qun the "Inner Circle".
He was known as "The Gatekeeper".
Mahmoud is a muscular Saddam lookalike often
photographed standing behind Saddam when he is seated, or to his left when
on the move.
Last week, Mahmoud was being debriefed at a
high-security base in Israel's Negev Desert.
Ariel Sharon, the country's hard-line prime minister,
has only allowed snippets of Mahmoud's sensational claims to be shared with
the CIA and MI6.
"Sharon intends to shatter the growing anti-war
movement," a source close to Mr Sharon said.
"He plans to call all those European leaders who
are wavering to let them know how Saddam has continued to fool Hans Blix
and his weapons inspectors."
Mahmoud's revelations include locations of five
bunkers buried beneath man-made sand dunes.
Stockpiled in the bunkers are warheads identical
to the empty shell cases found two weeks ago by the UN inspectors.
Mahmoud said those shells were on their way to be
refilled and stored in the bunkers.
A transcript from his debriefing includes:
"Saddam's weapons of mass destruction are also concealed
in a tunnel complex deep beneath the sewers of Baghdad and in an underground
complex in Ouja, to the north of Tikrit.
"The complex was built five years ago with help
from Chinese engineers.
"The entrance to the site is through a house in
Tikrit. It is the home of one of Saddam's cousins and is more than half a
mile from where the weapons are stored."
In another excerpt from his debriefing, Mahmoud
boasts: "I was inside the innermost circle where Saddam eats and sleeps.
"I was among the handful of bodyguards closest to
"Very few people are allowed close to Saddam.
"Many of the TV images you see of him were taken
years ago. Most people now only speak to him over the phone. He usually calls
"If they have to call him back with information
he wants, it is passed through his sons (Uday and Qusay) or (Deputy Prime
Minister) Tariq Aziz.
"All those close to him have codes, which they use
to access the outer circle. But even they can only come so close to Saddam
before there is a cut-off point the Inner Circle. Even Tariq Aziz
is checked to see if he is carrying weapons.
"Saddam knows fortunes are being offered to have
Saddam's paranoia increased after Uday, his eldest
son, narrowly escaped assassination when gunmen riddled his car with bullets
in 1996. Uday was partially paralysed and uses a wheelchair.
To avoid falling victim to even his own bodyguards,
Saddam is a walking arsenal.
"He has concealed guns all over his body," Mahmoud
"He also has panic buttons to press if he even suspects
somebody is about to attack him."
Israeli intelligence sources have hinted that the
deal with Mahmoud included smuggling his family out of Iraq.
Mossad agents have done this before.
At the start of Saddam's reign of terror, they persuaded
an Iraqi pilot to fly his Russian fighter to Israel after spiriting out his
wife and children.

it was Iranian gas that killed the Kurds, not Iraqi gas."

Dr Richard Perle stunned MPs by insisting a "clean bill of health"
from UN chief weapons inspector Hans Blix would not halt America's war machine.
Evidence from ONE witness on Saddam Hussein's weapons programme will be
enough to trigger a fresh military onslaught, he told an all-party meeting
on global security.

fresh military onslaught?
What keeps Bush from planting evidence of WMD in Iraq?
Think about it. Bush is willing to lie, cheat and steal in order to forward
his agenda to destroy Iraq. To his disappointment, inspectors have found
NOTHING thus far except some crated-up, 20 year-old warheads. Hardly evidence
of an active program for WMD.
Iraq Show Cooperation by This
What can we make of this convoluted and contradictory piece?
The headline says 'this weekend' (2-15/16). In the body of the article we
read: "Mr. Bush did not mention Friday as a turning point. Ms. Rice said
he had set no deadline for action by the Security Council." Much of what
we read in the controlled media is designed to 'shape public opinion' and
generate fear and anxiety. Stay close with God in peace and love.

Regime Change Before Becoming
Sunday Herald, United Kingdom, September 15, 2002
"A secret blueprint for US global domination reveals that President Bush
and his cabinet were planning a premeditated attack on Iraq to secure 'regime
change' even before he took power in January 2001...'This is a blueprint
for US world domination -- a new world order of their making. These are the
thought processes of fantasist Americans who want to control the world. I
