DEBKAfileâ Exclusive sources: Syria offers to expel 8 members of Saddamâs inner circle in a message reaching Washington through âRussian intelligence channelsâ. They are former vice president Izzat Ibrahim Al-Douri, Saddamâs bureau chief Abd Hamoud, Baath party boss Aziz Salah, special security service chief Hanni Tefalah, Republican Guards Secretary Kemal Mustafa, Republican Guards Commander Seif A-Din Suleih, Iraqi Intelligence Commander Taher Jaloul and Special Republican Guards commander, Gen. Barzan Suleiman Tikriti. This is Damascusâs first admission to harboring Saddamâs top aides â as first exposed in DEBKAfile on April 5. Its language hints at Syrian willingness to discuss extradition. ---------------------------------------------- Remember these people they are offering to expel are the same people they vehemently denied ever harbouring!! And for those that questioned Debka as a dubious source of information.... âThe United States Library of Congress preserves the Nationâs cultural artifacts and provides enduring access to them. The Libraryâs traditional functions, acquiring, cataloging, preserving and serving collection materials of historical importance to the Congress and to the American people to foster education and scholarship, extend to digital materials, including websites. The Library has selected your site (www.debka.com) for inclusion in the historic collection of the 2003 War on Iraq Internet materials. The Library requests your permission to collect your website. Our plan is to engage the Internet Archive, on behalf of the Library of Congress, to collect content from your website at regular intervals during the war. The Library will make this collection available to researchers onsite at Library facilities. The Library also wishes to make the collection available to offsite researchers by hosting the collection on the Libraryâs public access website. The Library hopes that you share its vision of preserving Web materials about the War and permitting researchers from across the world to access them.â Needless to say, DEBKAfile has acceded to this request.
