The Trail of Dirty Money

And dirty hands. MEMRI has a list of people who were bribed by Saddam's oil money.

In a subsequent article, Al-Mada provides details on the allocation and sale of oil vouchers. In general, the vouchers were given either as gifts or as payment for goods imported into Iraq in violation of the U.N. sanctions. The voucher holder would normally tender the voucher to any one of the specialized companies operating in the United Arab Emirates for a commission which initially ranged from $0.25 to $0.30 per barrel, though it may have declined in later years to as little as $0.10 or even $0.05 per barrel because of oil surplus on the market. [7] In other words, a voucher for 1 million barrels would have translated into a quick profit of $250,000-300,000 on the high side and $50,000-100,000 on the low side – all paid in cash. According to Al-Mada, Jordan will seek to tax the illicit profits of citizens who benefited from the sale of the vouchers.

Ya shouldn't touch blood money. It leaves stains on your hands.

Stains can be traced with today's technology.

Russia - Fourty-six names, too many to list on this site.

United Kingdom
1. George Galloway/Nawwaf Zuraiqat 19 million
2. Mujahideen Khalq 36.5 million


George Galloway - traitor to the United Kindom. Care to bring back that whole drawing and quartering idea, your majesty?

U.S.A.
1. Shaker Al-Khaffaji 7 million
2. Samir Vincent 10.5 million


Al-Khaffaji - who gave about $400,000 to Scott Ritter, the former weapons inspecter. Gee, why did Ritter "The Diddler" oppose the Iraq incursion again? Riiiiiiiiiiiiiight.

This list needs to be printed out and nailed to the foreheads of the Barking Moonbat Brigades.

Hat tip to Random Nuclear Strikes.
