RE: "Forgotten"

French President Jacques Chirac got his political agenda from SADDAM HUSSEIN and the UN Oil for Food Rip-off. Tariq Aziz, the former Iraqi deputy prime minister, told the ISG that the "primary motive for French co-operation" was to secure lucrative oil deals when UN sanctions were lifted. Total, the French oil giant, had been promised exploration rights.
Iraqi intelligence officials then "targeted a number of French individuals that Iraq thought had a close relationship to French President Chirac," it said, including two of his "counsellors" and spokesman for his re-election campaign.

They even assessed the chances for "supporting one of the candidates in an upcoming French presidential election." Chirac is not mentioned by name.

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."...

Thankfully President Bush has not 'Forgotten 911' and has implemented a very smart non-political anti-terror war that sucks radical Muslims into Iraq and Afghanistan and away from the US and Alaska where they are being methodically eliminated.
