Confirmed: Saddam Planned Terror Strike on Prague RFE Headquarters

Saddam stockpiled weapons in Prague for a terror strike on Radio Free Europe headquarters.

Czech officials confirmed on Sunday that Saddam Hussein had stockpiled weapons, including Kalashnikovs and rocket launchers, for a terrorist attack on the Radio Free Europe Headquarters in Prague in 2003.
Radio CZ reported, via Islam in Europe:

On Sunday, TV Nova aired an exclusive report with information that in 1999, Saddam Hussein ordered a terrorist attack that was to strike the Prague headquarters of Radio Free Europe, located at the time on Wenceslas square, in the heart of the city. In 2003, Czech intelligence officers discovered the plot and confiscated the weapons that Iraqi secret agents had stockpiled. Jan Šubert is the spokesman for BIS – the Czech counter-intelligence service.

“The weapons that we secured included 11 pistols, 4 Kalashnikovs, two Heckler-Koch submachine guns with silencers, some 2,000 rounds with magazines, and the most important thing, a portable, anti-tank rocket propelled grenade weapon also known as an RPG-7.”

Saddam Hussein spent significant amounts of money on these weapons, which were to be used in an attack on the US-financed radio station from where programs criticizing Mr. Hussein’s regime were broadcast around the world.

Saddam Hussein had a long history of funding and organizing terror attacks and offering a safe haven and training to terrorists. He also reached out to Al-Qaeda.

    a wee bit more..

    Musawi disclose the rainbow of the existence of
    evidence proving the involvement of the former
    regime with terrorists, bin Laden and Zawahiri..

    can’t imagine what else they’re
    keeping under wraps, oh wait..

    we’ve had “transparency” since 2006..

    re-booted in 20o8..

    that means they tell US everything, right??

    I’ve told people for a long time… It didn’t matter if we found WMD’s or not… Saddam was a MAJOR financial backer of terrorist around the world. He needed to go, and we needed a stable Iraq. We all know he had WMD’s …it’s a big desert.

    A desert big enough that one needed GPS to find the entrances to the bunkers.

    Saddam and Osama were good buddies i bet. Now the truth comes out. Maybe Bozo will apologize for good ol’ Hinsane!

  • Dell

    Time, friends and neighbors….TIME. As time goes by, we’ll discover more and more about the good deeds planned and executed by Mr. Saddam Hussein, and – damned reluctantly – history will be rewritten. Guess who’ll get the credit?

    Don’t expect any thanks from leftist Europeans. We’ve spoiled them rotten by paying THEM to defend THEM. It’s far past time that we kicked them out the nest so to speak.

    The left always laughed at the “Prague connection” They will down play this development as well. Just like they are ignoring the proof of fake global warming.

  • Ann

    Which brings us back to a long-not-answered question:

    Did Mohammed Atta visit Prague shortly before 9/11. The Czech intelligence service has always maintained that he did, while the US–at least publicly–has left it an open question.

  • Jabba the Tutt

    Wasn’t it the Czech intelligence that confirmed that Mohammed Atta showed up at the Prague airport in the months leading up to 9/11? And didn’t they say that Atta met with an iraqi intelligence officer? The Czech’s expelled the Iraqi shortly afterwards. Could there be a connection between al Qaeda and Saddam’s terror wish list?

    Wasn’t it the Czech intelligence that confirmed that Mohammed Atta showed up at the Prague airport in the months leading up to 9/11? And didn’t they say that Atta met with an iraqi intelligence officer?

    According to the British press, Saddam trained Mohammed Atta to carry out the 9/11 attack:

    Terrorist behind September 11 strike was trained by Saddam

    Iraq’s coalition government claims that it has uncovered documentary proof that Mohammed Atta, the al-Qaeda mastermind of the September 11 attacks against the US, was trained in Baghdad by Abu Nidal, the notorious Palestinian terrorist.

    Details of Atta’s visit to the Iraqi capital in the summer of 2001, just weeks before he launched the most devastating terrorist attack in US history, are contained in a top secret memo written to Saddam Hussein, the then Iraqi president, by Tahir Jalil Habbush al-Tikriti, the former head of the Iraqi Intelligence Service.

    The handwritten memo, a copy of which has been obtained exclusively by the Telegraph, is dated July 1, 2001 and provides a short resume of a three-day “work programme” Atta had undertaken at Abu Nidal’s base in Baghdad.

    Put that in your pipe and smoke it ObamaTrain.

  • Oh, good grief! Saddam had nothing to do with terrorism of … (snort)… any kind …(chortle)… and anthropo … (snicker)… genic global … (haha)… warming is real… (hahahaha)… cuz Obama says so and he is an honest man… (pfffft HAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!)

    eh, the NYT of all sources, go figure..

    Czechs Confirm Iraqi Agent Met With Terror Ringleader

    [The public linkage of Iraq’s intelligence service and the Al Qaeda terrorists also raises the question of whether those ties suggest Iraqi complicity ? either through financing, training or the providing of forged travel documents ? in the attacks last month.

    The Czech authorities confirmed the meeting at a time of spirited debate in the Bush administration over whether to extend the antiterrorism military campaign now under way in Afghanistan to Iraq at some point in the future. Such a widening of the campaign is opposed by Arab countries and European allies already nervous that the American campaign is being seen as a Western assault on Muslims, despite repeated assurances that the target is not Islam but terrorism.

    Speaking at a news conference in Prague, the Czech interior minister, Stanislav Gross, said that Mr. Atta met Mr. Ani, an Iraqi diplomat identified by Czech authorities as an intelligence officer, in early April.

    Mr. Gross and other Czech officials suggested earlier this month that while there was evidence that Mr. Atta had visited Prague, there was none he had actually met with Iraqi agents. It was unclear what prompted them to revise their conclusions, although it seemed possible that American officials, concerned about the political implications of Iraqi involvement in terror attacks, had put pressure on the Czechs to keep quiet.]

    i personally believe Bush did not want to go into Iraq,
    but seeing as how so much evidence piled up, he had to..

    another flashbacks:

    [(January 29, 2002) The September 11 attacks in the United States was carried out by operatives of Osama bin Laden’s Al-Qaida organization, but the initial plans for the terrorist attack were made in Baghdad six years ago.

    Iraqi intelligence trained at least two of bin Laden’s suicide pilots on Boeing jetliners the Iraqis captured during the Gulf war. The Iraqis provided several of bin Laden’s men with forged passports and vials of anthrax, which were delivered to one of the suicide pilots, Mohammad Atta, during secret meetings in Prague.

    Although the religious extremist and the extreme nationalist are polar opposites politically, international terrorist Osama bin Laden and Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein long ago set aside their differences to meet a common goal. The tragic events of September 11 mark only the first phase in their joint effort to enact revenge on their many common enemies in both the Western and the Islamic worlds.

    Mohammad Atta and His Iraqi Handlers
    Al-Qaida terrorist Mohammad Atta, who hijacked and piloted American Airlines flight 11 into the World Trade Center in September, met often with Iraqi intelligence officers. He met at least twice with Ahmad Khalil Ibrahim Samir al-Ani, a known Iraqi intelligence officer who worked in the Iraqi Embassy in Prague under diplomatic cover. Atta went to Prague from Hamburg by bus on June 2, 2000, to meet with al-Ani. The next day Atta left for the United States, where he enrolled in a flight school in Florida. Atta then returned to Prague in April 2001 to once again meet with al-Ani. In April, 2001 Czech authorities forced al-Ani to leave the country for “activities incompatible with his diplomatic status,” a euphemism for espionage.

    Atta’s connection to the Iraqis predates those meetings by at least a year, when he and fellow hijacker Marwav Jussuf al-Shehhi roomed together in Hamburg, Germany. Czech authorities say that Atta is believed to have also met with Farouq Hijazi in the spring of 2001. Hijazi is Iraq’s ambassador to Turkey and a former general in the intelligence service. Hijazi is Saddam Hussein’s personal liaison with bin Laden and is reportedly the man who as early as 1995 came up with the plan to destroy the World Trade Center with hijacked airliners.

    Among the items given to Atta by the Iraqi officers was a packet of documents that included at least one forged passport. German investigators believe that Atta also received at least one vial of anthrax. Atta is believed to have taken that anthrax with him to the United States. He reportedly gave it to other members of the Al-Qaida network to use in the ongoing terrorist campaign to distribute the deadly substance through the U.S. mail system.]

    lets also keep in mind the CIA (not to mention the MSM) was more
    or less proved to be anti-Bush (so to speak) as far back as 2000..

    Bush also believed “loose lips sink ships”.. and after several months of Obama’s mealy mouthing US, who needs more proof it’s true than that..

    Saddum Hussein’s billionaire bagman Auchi had wired tranfered a million or so dollars to Resko when obama was a IL Senator; in return Resko was to get Auchi’s name off the State Department’s no US entry list. And obama job was to publically campaign and vote against going into Iraq. Wasn’t long after obama bought his mansion in Hyde Park. And Resko’s wife bought the lot next to it. At huge discounts. I read where the house was not even in obama’s name but one of Resko’s lawyers. Fishy huh? Sounds like that’s why he hates Bush so much; Bush took out his sugar daddy.

    I was against the Iraq war from the beginning. War never proves anything.

    In fact, I am not interested in victory in Afghanistan. The Troops suck. We should never have ousted Saddam. Sure, he gassed a few people and sent others to the shredder – but that is no reason to invade his country and hang him.

    Think of root causes… like America and its crappy troops. They suck. That is the problem with the world – not fun loving Saddam Hussein.

    After I negotiated my Nobel Peace Prize I vowed to gut the military. I intend to keep my promise.

    My limousine is running and I have more economic damage to do. Good day.

  • squeaky

    here and there between a mix of people [politicos or regular joes] i hear the lamenting
    that funds being used for iraq could go to
    funding of social agendas. you could have a
    picture of obama and saddam breaking bread and celebrating 9-11 and it wouldn’t be enough for some people. i have access to some of these people and even though they never worked a day in their life – they consider it their money that’s being used. a lot of short sighted people.

    fortunately, i’m not alone. can”t we just call him

    i also believe Iraq was being targeted as a ‘Dem’ win, but when Bush won, they not only reversed course, but decided it would be the Republicans Vietnam.. having failed in that, they are now not only gouing to try & lose A-stan in Bush’s name, but the entire Global War on Terror via giving our attackers a World Stage to preach how evil America is.. sort of like an extrapolation of Rev Wright’s no no no G-D America ditty on LSD..

    Gore To Bush: You Ignored Saddam’s Terrorist Ties!

    long version: 1992

    a few sample’s:

    “I’ve never said that troops should be withdrawn. What I’ve said is, is that we’ve got to make sure that we secure and execute the rebuilding and reconstruction process effectively and properly, and I don’t think we should have an artificial deadline when to do that.”

    Senator Barack Obama (Democrat, Illinois)
    During an interview on “Chicago Tonight” with Elizabeth Brackett
    April 5, 2004

    “Every nation has to either be with us, or against us. Those who harbor terrorists, or who finance them, are going to pay a price.”

    Senator Hillary Clinton (Democrat, New York)
    During an interview on CBS Evening News with Dan Rather
    September 13, 2001

    “In the next century, the community of nations may see more and more the very kind of threat Iraq poses now — a rogue state with weapons of mass destruction ready to use them or provide them to terrorists, drug traffickers or organized criminals who travel the world among us unnoticed.

    If we fail to respond today, Saddam and all those who would follow in his footsteps will be emboldened tomorrow by the knowledge that they can act with impunity, even in the face of a clear message from the United Nations Security Council and clear evidence of a weapons of mass destruction program.”

    President Clinton
    Address to Joint Chiefs of Staff and Pentagon staff
    February 17, 1998

    Iraq was in the Dems & Gore’s sights before & during the campaign.. Iraq was also included in Gore’s stump speeches.. the more i look back with 20/20 hindsight, not only was Bush right, but i was right about Bush.. 🙂
