"Saddam was telling truth in missing Gulf War pilot" by Pamela Hess, Associated Press Writer | November 28, 2009
Yeah, we all kinda know that now!
I think the NO WMD was the first clue, 'eh?
WASHINGTON --Saddam Hussein was telling the truth, this time. The United States just didn't believe him....
What do you mean THIS TIME?

Turns out he was TELLING the TRUTH about a LOT of THINGS!!
A LOT of THINGS the AMERICAN GOVERNMENT and YOU LIED about, Ms. Hess!!!!!
So it took the most powerful military in the world 18 years to find the remains of the only U.S. Navy pilot shot down in an aerial battle in the 1991 Gulf War. Michael "Scott" Speicher's bones lay 18 inches deep in Iraqi sand, more or less right where a group of Iraqis had led an American search team in 1995.

Oh, just ONE MORE LIE the MSM and GOVERNMENT KNEW about, huh? Yup, GOVERNMENT OPENS IT MOUTH and it LIES!!!!!!!!!!
The search for Speicher was frustrated by two wars, mysteriously switched remains, Iraqi duplicity and a final tip from a young nomad in Anbar province. U.S. officials often were blinded by the same myopia that tainted prewar intelligence -- the American conviction that Hussein's government lied about everything.
Well, you can TURN THAT AROUND because in light of Climategate, WE KNOW the AMERIKAN GOVERNMENT and MSM LIES ITS ASSES OFF!!!!!
As it turned out, the Iraqis lied, but sometimes they told the truth....
At this point, I HAVE HAD it with the GARBAGE REVIEW of history!
What is WORSE is that the GOVERNMENT then RAISED HOPES that he was ALIVE so they could BOOST their WAR PROPAGANDA with the PEOPLE!!!!
In 1995, the Red Cross secured permission from Iraq for a humanitarian search team to excavate the crash site. Shepherded by Iraqi officials, the search team was led by a local Bedouin boy to Speicher's half-buried flight suit. Nearby were expended flares, part of an ejection seat and pieces of a life raft. But the searchers found no remains. They left suspicious, convinced that they had been set up even though Saddam's government was telling the truth.... In the summer of 2002, as the Bush administration prepared to invade Iraq, new intelligence intercepts suggested Speicher was being moved between dozens of secret sites inside Iraq.
Before the 2003 invasion, "we were positive we were getting him back," said Buddy Harris, a Speicher friend who later married the pilot's widow. "We were getting ready to go over and meet with him. We had the whole family prepped, with psychologists ready to help."
While the GOVERNMENT KNEW he had been DEAD 8 YEARS!!!!
Bush used Speicher's case as more evidence that Saddam had to be ousted. After Bush cited Speicher in his September 2002 speech at the United Nations, the rumors of Speicher's movements abruptly stopped....
Mission accomplished, 'eh, George?
Yeah, rather than get that, I am treated to this PoS, world:
"Channel praising Hussein hits airwaves" by Associated Press | November 30, 2009
BAGHDAD - Turning on their televisions during the long holiday weekend, Iraqis were greeted by a familiar if unexpected face from their brutal past: Saddam Hussein.
The late Iraqi dictator is lauded on a mysterious satellite channel that began broadcasting on the Islamic calendar’s anniversary of his 2006 execution. No one seems to know who is bankrolling the so-called Saddam Channel, although the Iraqi government suspects it is Ba’athists whose political party Hussein once led.
The Associated Press tracked down a man in Damascus named Mohammed Jarboua, who claimed to be its chairman. The Saddam Channel, he said, “didn’t receive a penny from the Ba’athists’’ and is for Iraqis and other Arabs who “long for his rule.’’ Jarboua has clearly made considerable efforts to hide where it is aired from and refuses to say who is funding it besides “people who love us.’’
Iraqis surprised to find Hussein on their televisions responded with the kind of divided emotions that marked his reign. “Iraqis don’t need such a satellite channel because it has hostile intentions,’’ said Hassan Subhi, 28, a Shi’ite who owns an Internet cafe in eastern Baghdad.
Others said they felt a nostalgic sorrow at the sight of their late leader, a Sunni Arab.
Yeah, those were the GOOD OLD DAYS!!!
That's why Iraq hasn't made the newspaper much, huh?
The channel, broadcast across the Arab world, dredges up the sectarian divisions that Hussein inspired among Shi’ites and Sunnis at a time when Iraq gears up for national elections.

Well, if they have increased the MSM in AmeriKa is not telling us!
Iraqi politicians have been arguing over parliamentary seat distribution in a dispute that has inflamed the splits. The wrangling could delay the vote beyond its Jan. 30 deadline. The Saddam Channel debuted Friday, the first day of this year’s Eid for Sunnis. The holiday started Saturday for Shi’ites.
Yup, attacks every day, but this is the s*** served up in my morning Glob.
