Good Report On Shiite Opposition, Iraq And Hussein

Thu Sep 05, 2002 11:40 am

Bruno Schirra, not the baddest journalist around, describes how he made a getaway from his hotel in Baghdad to escape frome the Iraqi "security personel" and to meet up with the Shiite opposition. Later, a stranger comes and says Schirra was standing on Uday's (Saddam Hussein's son) personal to-kill list.

Sorry, I couldn't find an english copy of this report, which was issued in Die Zeit, a major weekly paper in Germany. if you can not read german - try Babelfish or something similar. This report is scary but well worth to be read. Maybe the Pro-war-against-Iraq Alliance will gain more members.
