LINK to full article--Saddam's bodyguard reveals secret arsenal
by Gordon Thomas – GLOBE-INTEL, January 27, 2003


[Comment on article from is a fantastic report with many revealing statements. However, it is at this point that this "report" loses any and all credibility:]

"Israeli intelligence sources have hinted that part of the deal with Mahmoud was to smuggle out his family from Iraq. Mossad have done this before. At the start of Saddam's reign of terror they persuaded an Iraqi pilot to fly his Russian (?) Mirage to Israel - after Mossad had spirited his wife and children there."

Yeah, I noticed the "Russian Mirage", too. Considering that Iraq has or had both French and Soviet warplanes, the mistake seems honest enough.

The weapons include motorised underwater mines capable of creeping along the sea bed and then surfacing beneath a battleship or carrier.

Each mine is filled with chemicals that upon explosion can envelop the ship in a deadly cloud of poison.

The documents show that the mines and other weapons of mass destruction have been secretly developed at sites the UN inspectors have also not visited.

These are:

Al-Qaqa's State Establishment. Sixty miles south of Baghdad, it has produced what the documents describe as "self-detonating precise guided missiles".


I don't believe a word of this crap. Iraq may have chemical and biological weapons, but they don't have a delivery system any more complicated than an aerosol can, much less an automated submarine that is going to creep up under an aircraft carrier and "envelop the ship in a deadly cloud of poison."

From, we have another comment on this article from an Israeli reader:
From Nadir Martello

Hi Jeff,

I would like to make a comment to this story, 'Saddam's Bodyguard Reveals Secret Arsenal.' It is a very good story, but too good to be true.

Who is this Gordon Thomas any way? Does he work for the Mossad himself, or what? Who is going to believe this report? The fact that George Bush wants a war with Iraq, whether it possesses weapons of mass-destruction or not, is totally irrelevant; Bush will have his way - sorry, Israeli-Mossad's way.
