Let&rsquo;s begin. As&nbsp;a former Romanian spy chief who used to take direct orders from the Soviet KGB, you are obviously armed with a wealth of information. You have written about how the Soviets armed Hussein with WMDs, and also taught him how to eliminate any trace of them. Can you talk a bit about this and tell us its connection to the &ldquo;missing WMDs&rdquo; in&nbsp;Iraq&nbsp;today?<strong>&nbsp;</strong></span></p> <p><span style="font-family: 'Times New Roman'; font-size: large;"><strong>&nbsp;</strong>&nbsp;</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: 'Times New Roman'; font-size: large;"><strong>Pacepa:</strong>&nbsp;Contemporary political memory seems to be conveniently afflicted with some kind of Alzheimer's disease. Not long ago, every Western leader, starting with President Clinton, fumed against Saddam&rsquo;s WMD. Now almost no one remembers that after&nbsp;General Hussein Kamel, Saddam&rsquo;s son-in-law, defected to Jordan in 1995, he helped us find &ldquo;more than one hundred metal trunks and boxes&rdquo; containing documentation &ldquo;dealing with all categories of weapons, including nuclear.&rdquo; He also aided UNSCOM to fish out of the&nbsp;Tigris&nbsp;River&nbsp;high-grade missile components prohibited to&nbsp;Iraq. That was exactly what my old Soviet-made &ldquo;S&atilde;rindar&rdquo; plan stated he should do in case of emergency: destroy the weapons, hide the equipment, and preserve the documentation. No wonder Saddam hastened to lure Kamel back to&nbsp;Iraq, where three days later he was killed together with over 40 of his relatives in what the&nbsp;Baghdad&nbsp;official press described as a &ldquo;spontaneous administration of tribal justice.&rdquo; Once that was done, Saddam slammed the door shut to any UNSCOM inspection.</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: 'Times New Roman'; font-size: large;"><strong>&nbsp;</strong>&nbsp;</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: 'Times New Roman'; font-size: large;"><strong>FP:&nbsp;</strong>So was&nbsp;any S&atilde;rindar plan activated?<strong>&nbsp;</strong></span></p> <p><span style="font-family: 'Times New Roman'; font-size: large;"><strong>Pacepa:&nbsp;</strong><strong>Certainly. The minimal version of the&nbsp;</strong>S&atilde;rindar<strong>&nbsp;plan I made for&nbsp;</strong><strong>Libya</strong><strong>&rsquo;s Gaddafi. Soon after I was granted political asylum in the&nbsp;</strong><strong>US</strong><strong>, Gaddafi&nbsp;</strong>staged a fire at the secret chemical weapons facility I knew about (the cellar underneath the Rabta chemical complex). To be sure the CIA satellites would notice that fire and cross that target off its list, he created a huge cloud of black smoke by burning truckloads of tires and painting scorch marks on the facility. That was written in the S&atilde;rindar plan. To be on the safe side, Gaddafi also built a second production facility, this time placed some 100 feet underground in the hollowed-out&nbsp;Tarhunah&nbsp;Mountain, south of&nbsp;Tripoli. That was not in the S&atilde;rindar plan.</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: 'Times New Roman'; font-size: large;"><strong>FP:</strong>&nbsp;It is undeniable, therefore, that Saddam had WMDs, right?</span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><span style="font-family: 'Times New Roman'; font-size: large;"><strong>Pacepa:&nbsp;</strong>In the early 1970s, the Kremlin established a &ldquo;socialist division of labor&rdquo; for persuading the governments of&nbsp;Iraq&nbsp;and&nbsp;Libya&nbsp;to join the terrorist war against the&nbsp;US. KGB chairman Yury Andropov (who would later become the leader of the Soviet Union), told me that either of those two countries could inflict more damage on the Americans than could the Red Brigades, the Baader-Meinhof group and all other terrorist organizations taken together. The governments of those Arab countries, Andropov explained, not only had inexhaustible financial resources (read: oil), but they also had huge intelligence services that were being run by &ldquo;our&nbsp;<em>razvedka</em>&nbsp;advisers&rdquo; and could extend their tentacles to every corner of the earth. There was one major danger, though: by raising terrorism to the state level we risked American reprisal.Washington&nbsp;would never dispatch its airplanes and rockets to exterminate the Baader-Meinhof, but it might well deploy them to destroy a terrorist state. We therefore were also tasked to provide those countries secretly with weapons of mass destruction, because Andropov concluded that the Yankees would never attack a country that could retaliate with such deadly weapons.</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: 'Times New Roman'; font-size: large;">&nbsp;</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: 'Times New Roman'; font-size: large;">Libya&nbsp;was&nbsp;Romania&rsquo;s main client in that socialist division of labor, because of Ceausescu&rsquo;s close association with Colonel Muammar Gaddafi.&nbsp;Moscow&nbsp;kept&nbsp;Iraq. Andropov told me that, if our&nbsp;Iraq&nbsp;and&nbsp;Libyan experiment proved successful, the same strategy would be extended to&nbsp;Syria. Recently,&nbsp;Libya&rsquo;s Gaddafi admitted to having WMD, and the CIA inspectors found them. Why should we believe that the almightySoviet Union, which had proliferated WMD all over the world, was not able to do the same thing in&nbsp;Iraq? Every piece of armament&nbsp;Iraq&nbsp;had came from the former&nbsp;Soviet Union&mdash;from the&nbsp;Katyusha launchers to the T72 tanks, BMP-1 fighting vehicles and MiG fighter planes. In the spring of 2002, just a couple of weeks after Russia took its place at the NATO table, President Putin and his ex-KGB officers who are now running Russia concluded another billion trade deal with Saddam Hussein&rsquo;s tyrannical regime in Iraq. That was not for grain or beans&mdash;Russia&nbsp;has to import them from elsewhere.<strong></strong></span></p> <p><span style="font-family: 'Times New Roman'; font-size: large;"><strong></strong>&nbsp;</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: 'Times New Roman'; font-size: large;"><strong>FP:&nbsp;</strong><strong>Tell us about&nbsp;</strong><strong>the PLO and its connection to the Soviet regime.&nbsp;&nbsp;</strong></span></p> <p><span style="font-family: 'Times New Roman'; font-size: large;"><strong></strong>&nbsp;</span></p> <p><span style="font-family: 'Times New Roman'; font-size: large;"><strong>Pacepa:&nbsp;</strong>The PLO was dreamt up by the KGB, which had a penchant for &ldquo;liberation&rdquo; organizations. There was the National&nbsp;<em>Liberation</em>&nbsp;Army of Bolivia, created by the KGB in 1964 with help from Ernesto &ldquo;Che&rdquo; Guevara. Then there was the National&nbsp;<em>Liberation</em>&nbsp;Army of Colombia, created by the KGB in 1965 with help from Fidel Castro, which was soon deeply involved in kidnappings, hijackings, bombings and guerrilla warfare. In later years the KGB also created the Democratic Front for the&nbsp;<em>Liberation</em>&nbsp;of&nbsp;Palestine, which carried out numerous bombing attacks on the &ldquo;Palestinian territories&rdquo; occupied by&nbsp;Israel, and the &ldquo;Secret Army for&nbsp;<em>Liberation</em>&nbsp;of&nbsp;Armenia,&rdquo; created by the KGB in 1975, which organized numerous bombing attacks against US airline offices in&nbsp;Western Europe.</span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><span style="font-family: 'Times New Roman'; font-size: xx-large;">Full original text<a href="http://archive.frontpagemag.com/Printable.aspx?ArtId=13975"> &nbsp;WWW.FRONTPAGEMAG.COM</a></span></p> </div> </div> <div id="parentexpandtreemenu" data-db="articles" data-field="cat_id" data-value="16" data-selector="/43.str.16"></div><p class="lineTerminated"><a href="#comments" class="subTitle" id="comments">Добавить комментарий</a></p><table cellspacing="8" cellpadding="0" class="ccomments"> <thead class="hideonauth"> <tr> <td colspan="3"> Оставлять комментарии могут только зарегистрированные пользователи.<br/> Войдите в систему используя свою учетную запись на сайте: </td> </tr> <form name="login" method="POST" action="/passport/login.html"> <tr> <td width="75%" valign="middle"> <span class="nomobile">Email:</span><input type="text" name="email" class="inp_txt inp_y" placeholder="Email" /> <span class="nomobile">Пароль:</span><input type="password" name="password" class="inp_txt inp_y" placeholder="Пароль" /> <input type="submit" value="Войти" /> </td> <td width="25%" valign="middle"> <p style="margin-bottom:6px"><a href="/passport/remind.html?nw">напомнить пароль</a></p> <a href="/passport/registration.html?nw" class="sendbutton">Регистрация</a> </td> </tr> </form> <!--<tr> <td colspan="3"> Вы можете авторизироваться при помощи аккаунта <a href="/importaccaunts/main.html"><img src="/img/fb.png" width="18" height="18" align="middle" class="lineicon" />Facebook</a> </td> </tr>--> <tr> <td colspan="3"> <!--<script type="text/javascript" src="//ulogin.ru/js/ulogin.js"></script> <div id="uLogin" data-ulogin="callback=preview;display=panel;fields=first_name,last_name,photo,photo_big,country;providers=facebook,twitter,livejournal,googleplus,vkontakte,odnoklassniki,mailru;hidden=;redirect_uri"></div> <script type="text/javascript"> function preview(token){ $.getJSON("//ulogin.ru/token.php?host=" + encodeURIComponent(location.toString()) + "&token=" + token + "&callback=?", function(data){ data=$.parseJSON(data.toString()); if(!data.error){ $(".hideonauth").replaceWith("<tr><td colspan=3><p><strong>"+data.first_name+" "+data.last_name+"</strong></p><img src="+data.photo+" onerror=\"this.src='/img/nophoto.png'\"/><input type=hidden name=identity value="+data.identity+" /><input type=hidden name=uid value="+data.uid+" /><input type=hidden name=profile value="+data.profile+" /><input type=hidden name=network value="+data.network+" /><input type=hidden name=country value="+data.country+" /><input type=hidden name=city value="+data.city+" /><input type=hidden name=network_email value="+data.email+" /><input type=hidden name=first_name value="+data.first_name+" /><input type=hidden name=last_name value="+data.last_name+" /><input type=hidden name=nickname value="+data.nickname+" /><input type=hidden name=photo value="+data.photo+" /><input type=hidden name=photo_big value="+data.photo_big+" /></td></tr>"); $("#onregsuccess").prop("onclick",null); //$(".hideonauth").replaceWith("<tr><td colspan=3><strong>"+data.first_name+" "+data.last_name+"</strong><input type=text name=identity value="+data.identity+" /><input type=text name=uid value="+data.uid+" /><input type=text name=profile value="+data.profile+" /><input type=text name=network value="+data.network+" /><input type=text name=country value="+data.country+" /><input type=text name=city value="+data.city+" /><input type=text name=network_email value="+data.email+" /><input type=text name=first_name value="+data.first_name+" /><input type=text name=last_name value="+data.last_name+" /><input type=hidden name=nickname value="+data.nickname+" /><input type=text name=photo value="+data.photo+" /><input type=text name=photo_big value="+data.photo_big+" /></td></tr>"); } }); } </script>--> </td> </tr> </thead> </table> </div> <div class="leftmarg"></div> <script type="text/javascript" src="/js-v3-jquery-1.8.3.min.js--jquery.scrollTo-min--forum--jsverif--playlist--jquery.cookie--init.js"></script> </body> </html>
