WE CONFIRM THE MEETING 
SADDAM HUSSEIN-DONALD RUMSFELD IN BAGDAD

Despite the denegations of the Iraki muppet governement and of the State Department, we confirm – on basis of serious information from the Ba’ath and the Defense legal team of Arab layers who defend the President Saddam Hussein – the informations issued by AL-QUDS AL-ARABI  (London, April 29) and the Egyptian magasine AL-USBU (May 2).

The U.S. Secretary of Defence Donald Rumsfeld paid a secret visit to Iraqi president Saddam Hussein and offered him “freedom and a possible return to public life if he made a televised request to rebel groups for a ceasefire with allied forces”. Quoting from the London based Arab daily AL-QUDS AL-ARABI, it was reported that Saddam promptly rejected the offer.

The visit to Saddam occurred when Rumsfeld paid a ‘surprise’ visit to Iraq some two weeks ago and was known only to a few Iraqi officials in Jordan, the Arab daily reported quoting sources.

The Egyptian magazine AL-USBU, on 2 May 2005, published what it said was the text of the conversation between Iraqi President Saddam Hussein and US Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld on his latest trip to Baghdad during which he visited the imprisoned Iraqi leader. AL-USBU reports that informed political sources had disclosed the details of the meeting.

The Saddam Hussein-Rumsfeld meeting reportedly lasted nearly an hour and took place in the presence of the commander of US occupation forces in Iraq.

The newsletter AL-BA’ATH AL-IRAQI, issued by the “Iraqi Committees” will publish on its May 6 issue (#55) the english translation of this conversation.
