Saddam soll Geld in Deutschland und Japan angelegt haben

Kairo (dpa) - Der irakische Ex-Präsident Saddam Hussein soll laut der arabischen Zeitung "Al-Hayat" große Geldbeträge bei deutschen und japanischen Banken angelegt haben. Die Zeitung beruft sich auf anonyme "hochrangige" irakische Informanten. Der Ministerpräsident der Übergangsregierung, Ijad Allawi, habe auf Anfrage erklärt, er schätze das von Saddam versteckte Vermögen auf 40 Milliarden US- Dollar.

@Hartmut & all SPIEGEL-haters
"http://www.spiegel.de/politik/deutschland/0,1518,304551,00.html"

You guys should apply! You could write a book afterwards a la Guenter Wallraff's BILD-Hans-Esser books were he becomes a BILD editor and tells all the inside stories about how BILD works. That should be fun. I'm sure, SPIEGEL would love that too.

If I were the terrorists' media consultant, I'd tell them to
lay off the beheadings for a few weeks while Abu Ghraib dominated
the headlines. Poor "issue management" on their part...

Deutsche Medien? Huhu, wo seid ihr?!

Solche Umfragen werden natürlich hier zu Lande nicht veröffentlicht. Könnte ja das quadratisch-praktische Weltbild etwas ins Wanken bringen...
