Saddam Hussein believed he could avoid the Iraq war with a bribery strategy targeting Jacques Chirac, the President of France, according to devastating documents released last night.Kerry continues to insist that he would have built a "true coalition", clearly implying that he would have brought France, Russia, and China on board. But from everything it is clear that this would have never have happened. Just today Kerry admitted that it is highly unlikely that he would be able to convince France or Germany to send troops to Iraq now. Yet at every opportunity Kerry and Edwards insist that they "have a plan" for Iraq. Well, what is it????
Memos from Iraqi intelligence officials, recovered by American and British inspectors, show the dictator was told as early as May 2002 that France - having been granted oil contracts - would veto any American plans for war.
A memo sent to Saddam dated in May last year from his intelligence corps said they met with a "French parliamentarian" who "assured Iraq that France would use its veto in the UN Security Council against any American decision to attack Iraq."
