Saddam Says Bunnypants Plans to Attack to Control Politics, Oil and Economic Policies

The NYTimes reports: "Saddam Hussein... accused the Bush administration today of seeking to 'destroy Iraq in order to control the Middle East oil' and asserted that Mr. Bush had made 'distortions' to lead Americans to think Iraq had a role in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

"Mr. Hussein declared that Iraq is 'clear of all nuclear, chemical and biological weapons'... and made a general offer to 'any scientific experts accompanied by politicians you choose to represent any one of your countries' to come to Iraq to look for weapons. He said Iraq would provide those foreign experts 'all the facilities they need to achieve their objective'... Mr. Hussein said the Bush administration was planning an attack against Iraq in order to 'control the politics as well as the oil and economic policies of the whole world. If it succeeded in that, God would dictate on you what each country needs for its economic development' by controlling the price and distribution of oil."
