Russia warned U.S. that Saddam planned terror attacks


Russian intelligence services warned Washington several times that Saddam Hussein's regime planned terrorist attacks against the United States, President Vladimir Putin has said. The strikes were planned after September 11, 2001 and before the start of the Iraqi war, Putin said Friday, according to the Interfax news agency. The planned attacks were targeted both inside and outside the United States, said Putin, who made the remarks in Kazakhstan.
Not sure what to make of this. If you had asked me yesterday I would have said no way Saddam would have done such a thing. He wasn't that stupid. Then again he ended his career in a spider-hole which doesn't exactly make him a genius. I'll be interested to see if any more comes out on this. It will also be interesting to see how much it is covered and what effect it has on the national debate.
