<!--EZCODE BOLD START--><strong>Russians Helped Iraq, Study Says</strong><!--EZCODE BOLD END--><br>Papers Show Hussein Was Tipped Off About U.S. Strategy During Invasion<br><br>By Ann Scott Tyson and Josh White<br>Washington Post Staff Writers<br>Saturday, March 25, 2006; Page A01<br><br>Russian officials collected intelligence on U.S. troop movements and attack plans from inside the American military command leading the 2003 invasion of Iraq and passed that information to Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein, according to a U.S. military study released yesterday.<br><br>The intelligence reports, which the study said were provided to Hussein through the Russian ambassador in Baghdad at the height of the U.S. assault, warned accurately that American formations intended to bypass Iraqi cities on their thrust toward Baghdad. The reports provided some specific numbers on U.S. troops, units and locations, according to Iraqi documents dated March and April 2003 and later captured by the United States.<br><br>"The information that the Russians have collected from their sources inside the American Central Command in Doha is that the United States is convinced that occupying Iraqi cities are impossible, and that they have changed their tactic," said one captured Iraqi document titled "Letter from Russian Official to Presidential Secretary Concerning American Intentions in Iraq" and dated March 25, 2003.<br><br>(...)<br><br>The study gives no indication who the alleged sources inside the U.S. Central Command might have been, or whether American officials believe the Kremlin authorized the transfer of information to Hussein's government.<br><br>The Central Command, which oversees military operations in the Middle East and is headquartered in Tampa, did not respond to requests for comment. A State Department spokeswoman declined to comment.<br><br>The U.S. military and defense officials who released the study said the revelations about Russia in the captured documents came as a surprise. They said they believe the captured Iraqi documents are authentic.<br><br>"Certainly, sure, I was surprised," said Army Brig. Gen. Anthony A. Cucolo III, director of the Joint Center for Operational Analysis and Lessons Learned under the Joint Forces Command in Norfolk. He said he thinks the alleged Russian intelligence-sharing was linked to Moscow's commercial interests in Iraq. "Essentially, it's driven by economic interests," he told reporters at the Pentagon. "I don't see it as an aberration. I see it as a follow-on to economic engagement." Retired Lt. Col. Kevin M. Woods, the project director, said he has "no reason to doubt the Iraqi documents."<br><br>The 210-page study, called the Iraqi Perspectives Project, draws on declassified information from an internal U.S. military report that was based on the examination of more than half a million files of Iraqi documents and dozens of interviews with former senior Iraqi military and political leaders. Some of that information remains classified.<br><br>more<br><br>(registration required) <p></p><i></i>

...on this<br><br><!--EZCODE LINK START--><a href="http://kurtnimmo.com/?p=300" target="top">kurtnimmo.com/?p=300</a><!--EZCODE LINK END--><br><br><!--EZCODE QUOTE START--><blockquote><strong><em>Quote:</em></strong><hr><br><!--EZCODE BOLD START--><strong>Neocons: Russia in Cahoots with Saddam <br>Saturday March 25th 2006, 1:40 pm</strong><!--EZCODE BOLD END--> <br><br>As we know, the Straussian neocons have it out for a large number of nations, most notably in the Islamic Middle East, but also in Latin America. North Korea, China, and Russia also figure prominently on the neocon lit list. According to neocon heavyweight Frank Gaffney (president of the Bush connected Center for Security Policy), China is engaged in “fascistic trade and military policies” and Russia’s Putin is “accelerating authoritarianism at home and aggressiveness toward the former Soviet republics.” <br><br>A couple years ago the neocons made public their desire to suspend Russia’s membership in the G-8 group of industrial nations (a globalist forum pushing “macroeconomic management,” in other words facilitating neoliberal globalist loan shark control over the economic policies of “developing countries,” or defenseless countries ripe for looting). It is no secret the Straussian neocons are miffed over Putin’s treatment of the billionaire Russian Oligarchs, a cabal of fraudsters and embezzlers connected to the Russian Mafia. In fact the Oligarchs are at the heart of the neocon animosity toward Russia and Vladimir Putin, who is no push-over like the drunkard Boris Yeltsin.<br><br>For neolibs over at the World Bank, the widespread theft of Russian assets by the Oligarchs during the implosion of the Soviet economy represents “the quintessence of Russia’s transition to capitalism,” a natural reaction to a “predatory and corrupt Russian bureaucracy,” never mind that economic “liberalization” (or rather “neoliberalization”) produced “chaos, hyperinflation, industrial collapse,” and widespread misery for the Russian populace, according to a study conducted by James K. Galbraith, Ludmila Krytynskaia and Qifei Wang of the Conference on Globalization and Development Problems. <br><br>In 1998, 60 percent of the Russian population lived in poverty and 25 percent were living in extreme poverty. In 1992, the latter figure was 11 percent. “Since 1991 more than two million premature deaths have resulted from increases in alcoholism, suicide, murder, infectious diseases, and stress-related ailments,” writes David M. Kotz. “A recent study estimated that 2 million children have no family caring for them, of whom only 650,000 are in orphanages. The rest live in abandoned houses or in the sewer system of large cities.” For the neoliberal financial parasites and the Russian Oligarchs, such massive misery was a boondoggle. “Russia’s new oligarchs made fortunes exporting oil, speculating in securities, and lending money to the government. Anxious to obtain a share of these gains, foreign portfolio capital began to flow in, culminating in a $44 billion inflow in 1997. That year Russia had one of the world’s best performing stock markets, as oil and bank stocks were grabbed up by domestic and foreign investors.” <br><br>According to the neocon criminal organization, the American Enterprise Institute, where Bush harvests his “minds,” the arrest and prosecution of Yukos Oil Oligarch Mikhail Khodorkovsky for embezzlement, money-laundering, attempted murder, theft and fraud represents a “scandal of Watergate proportions” and “comparable to Stalin’s purges of the 1930s or the Soviet invasion of Prague in 1968.” Khodorkovsky was convicted and sent to the YaG-14/10 labor camp at Krasnokamensk for nine years. His arrest and prosecution, according to Marshall I. Goldman, a prominent expert on the Russian economy and the associate director of Harvard’s Davis Center for Russian and Eurasian Studies, interviewed by the Council on Foreign Relations, “has really scared the domestic and foreign business communities. That’s not to say that people have stopped investing. Some are investing, but others have gone off in a different direction. Foreign direct investment in Russia is less than in Poland and other East European countries and is, at best, a tenth of what it is in China,” a dire situation for parasitical neolibs and neocons alike. <br><br>Other Russian Oligarchs have flown the coop and now live in Herzliya, a posh suburb of Tel Aviv, Israel. “Some of these crooks have fled Russia for the protection of Israel, where defrauding Gentiles is not considered a crime,” notes Focal Point. Khodorkovsky and the Oligarchs Roman Abramovich, Boris Berezovsky, and Vladimir Gusinsky are Jewish—thus their persecution is of course virulent anti-Semitism, as the Forward newspaper reminds us (the prosecution and imprisonment of Khodorkovsky “does not represent a new wave of Russian antisemitism,” according to Forward, it “represents a very old wave, and it accompanies the revival of old modes of action that may have been buried but never died,” in other words Russians cling persistently to anti-Semitism, as do the goyim in general, never mind that Khodorkovsky and his ilk are responsible for kids sleeping in sewers and pensioners starving to death). <br><br>In October, 2003, neocon éminence grise Richard Perle demanded Russia be expelled from the G-8 for prosecuting Khodorkovsky and running his ransacking neolib oligarchic partners off to Israel (where the now comatose Ariel Sharon refused to extradite them). According to Simon Saradzhyan of the Moscow Times, “Perle, who believes that the White House should contain the Kremlin rather than cooperate with it, has criticized the campaign against Yukos shareholders from the beginning” and “Perle may be using the Yukos affair to push his vision of foreign policy that would contain Russia rather than elevate it to the status of a strategic partner.” <br><br>Now we learn “Moscow had informants inside U.S. Central Command whose information on the March 2003 invasion of Iraq was relayed to dictator Saddam Hussein days before American troops ousted him from power,” according to Rowan Scarborough of the Moonie, er Washington Times. Russia’s Foreign Intelligence Service has denied the accusation. “Similar, baseless accusations concerning Russia’s intelligence have been made more than once,” Foreign Intelligence Service spokesman Boris Labusov told the Associated Press. “We don’t consider it necessary to comment on such fabrications… To my mind, from my understanding it’s absolutely nonsense and it’s ridiculous… Somebody wants to say something, and did—and there is no evidence to prove it.”<br><br>However, in Bushzarro world, evidence is not required, as large numbers of clueless Americans still believe Saddam Hussein had something to do with nine eleven and traipsed with Osama bin Laden. Now they will be told the back-stabbing Putin connived with Saddam Hussein, a rather suspiciously timed accusation in light of Russia’s meddlesome role in deflecting the neocon set-up of Iran. Obviously, killing Slobodan Milosevic was not enough to get back at the Russians. Now they must be accused of working hand-in-hand with Saddam Hussein as well.<hr></blockquote><!--EZCODE QUOTE END--><br><!--EZCODE ITALIC START--><em>Embedded links at the original article</em><!--EZCODE ITALIC END--><br><br> <p></p><i></i>

Makes me wonder if the timing of this is intended to diss Russia to put them on the defensive so that Russia will be discouraged from supporting Iran in any way, say maybe like switching to the euro or something similar. <p></p><i></i>

Prep Work For Iran

Postby greencrow0 » Tue Mar 28, 2006 12:49 pm

I posted something on this story here last week.<br><br>This story is being circulated by the mouth pieces for the cabal so that when the US bombs the Iranian nuclear plant and there are Russian workers killed as 'collateral damage' it will look justified by the story about the Rooskies helping Iraq.<br><br>Now I personally think the Rookies WERE helping Iraq because at the time of the invasion, there was a Russian blog site called 'Veniks Aviation' that was mysteriously posting 'updates' on the invasion which were suspiciously like insider information.<br><br>I went on it daily and even hourly for the latest on the troop movements, etc.<br><br>It was the site that broke the news about how the Russian Embassy staff had a 'show down' [and possibly a shoot out] with the US troops on the road out of Baghdad.<br><br>So I believe the keeper of this blog was posted to the Russian Embassy in Baghdad and was keeping his superiors in Russia, as well as the Iraqis informed as well as he could.<br><br>After the Invasion, this website was purchased by an American Company and is now blah, blah, blah about aircraft.<br><br>I still have it in my favourites just as a memento, I guess.<br><br>But, even if the Rooskies were running a website or whatever from the Russian Embassy in Iraq during the Invasion...that is their right. Iraq was a sovereign country at that time and had signed OIL contracts with the Rooskies, Germans and French...which of course the US illegally nullified after the occupation...[and then THEY stole the OIL from Iraq].<br><br>So, as I was saying at the beginning of this piece...this story is all just prep work for the Invasion of Iran....kind of a warning and a reminder.<br><br>From the evil ones.<br><br><br> <p></p><i></i>
