Intelligence Files Reportedly Identify Saddam’s Agents

The Tariq Aziz story was on page one, but this story was buried on page 15: “Seized Intelligence Files Spur U.S. Investigations”:
“The CIA has seized an extensive cache of files from the former Iraqi Intelligence Service….The records would stretch 91/2 miles if laid end to end, the officials said. They contain not only the names of nearly every Iraqi intelligence officer, but also the names of their paid foreign agents, written agent reports, evaluations of agent credentials, and documentary evidence of payments made to buy influence in the Arab world and elsewhere, the officials said.”
The records reportedly identify “prominent personalities and political figures,” “both in Arab countries and in other regions,” who “accepted money from Iraq as they defended Hussein publicly or pressed his causes.”
I can’t wait.
