Um wait. I’m really confused here. (not my) Speaker Pelosi and Honest Harry Reid tell me that the Iraqi Theatre has nothing to do with, and never has had anything to with, the War on Terror (WWIII).
So how exactly do they explain spies of Saddam being in the USA before the invasion of Iraq to enforce the countless United Nations Security Council resolutions? (They were just arrested and charged.)
Two Detroit-area men have been charged with spying for Saddam Hussein’s intelligence service, supplying the executed dictator’s regime with information about its enemies in the United States, according to federal court documents unsealed today.
Ghazi Al-Awadi, 78, of Dearborn, allegedly told the Iraqi Intelligence Service in 1997 that he killed his son-in-law because the man belonged to an anti-Hussein political party, court documents said.
Najib Shemami, 59, of Sterling Heights, allegedly provided Iraqi intelligence with information about Iraqi expatriates who might be called upon to guide U.S. troops during the invasion of Iraq and potential political candidates for the new government.
The charges were based on Iraqi intelligence documents captured by U.S. forces in Iraq.
The men are believed to be the first Detroit-area residents to be charged on the basis of such documents, which were authenticated by former members of the Iraqi Intelligence Service.
On Monday, a federal jury in Chicago convicted Sami Latchin, 59, of Des Plaines, Ill., of working as an Iraqi sleeper agent, spying on Iraqi dissidents in the United States. He is facing a possible 40-year prison sentence.
Please someone help me to see what Pelosi and Reid cannot.
