Welche Lüge gemeint ist? Na die, daß Saddam Hussein’s Regime vor 2003 keinerlei Verstrickungen in den internationalen Terrorismus gehabt hätte (Kopfgeld für die Ermordung von Juden zu zahlen gilt in den Augen der Irakkriegsgegner ja leider nicht als Terrorunterstützung). Und diese Lüge platzt jetzt nicht nur wie eine Seifenblase, die Frau eines der Topterroristen hält sogar selber die Nadel:
BAGHDAD (AFP) – The Egyptian commander of Al-Qaeda forces in Iraq who was killed in a US-backed raid this month arrived in Baghdad under Saddam Hussein’s rule, a press report on Wednesday quoted his widow as saying.
Hasna, the widow of Abdel Moneim Ezzeddine Ali al-Badawi, better known by his nom de guerre Abu Ayyub al-Masri, was arrested in the same April 18 operation in the Lake Tharthar area, south of Baghdad, in which her husband was killed.
She told her interrogators that her husband travelled to Iraq from the United Arab Emirates in 2002, the year before Saddam’s overthrow by US-led troops, the Al-Bayan newspaper reported.
[…] „We lived in Karrada (in central Baghdad) for seven months, then in Amiriya (in west Baghdad), then we moved to Baghdad al-Jadida (in the east) in 2003 when Saddam’s regime fell with the entry of Americans into the city,“ she said.
Hasna’s reported comments are significant because in the run-up to the US-led invasion, US officials alleged links between Saddam Hussein’s secular regime and Al-Qaeda, which were strenuously denied at the time.
