Saddam Hussein and the Offer - “Pay Me and I Will Leave”

Still Wondering Why No One Has the Facts -



Why has no one has been willing to write even one article about the matter of the double teaming by the Clintons and Blumenthals, acting for the Bush Administration, to keep Saddam Hussein in Iraq during the build up to the opening of hostilities?
Saddam made contact with the Bush Administration and the Clintons were given the job of persuading him there was no real danger of invasion. This took place in late October or early November, 2002.

Given the timing of events having Saddam leave Iraq would have made it impossible for the Bush White House to get what they wanted. The absence of any Weapons of Mass Destruction to be documented, except those provided by George H. W. Bush, was a bullet in the brain to their plans still reverberating. What if Saddam left, a richer man ready to write his memoirs, perhaps?

It was not to be tolerated. Action was taken. I suspect many other issues very much on point today when the two likely nominees for president at Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush, both of whom know exactly what went down.

My interest in this is to clear this record and other false statements which have continued to impact me for the last 17 years.

John Fund - Sex, Lies and the Tape

You may remember my name because of the Kerfuffle which took place between my daughter, Morgan Pillsbury, and John Fund, then of the Wall Street Journal. Although the story started in October of 1998 it came into public view when Morgan agreed to be interviewed by John Connolly for an article which was to appear in Talk Magazine. Fund scotched its publication. I was not consulted.

Letter from Fund's attorney, John J. Walsh

The article, “Sex, Lies and the Tape,” appeared on Weasel Search on September 4, 2001. It was a provocative scandal for those onlooking. Full Tape is available here.

The interview was entirely Morgan's doing. I very reluctantly agreed to talk to Connolly to confirm a few points. The article was inaccurate on many specifics, these most likely arising from Morgan's lies. Morgan's history of deceptive behavior started when she was still a child, causing enormous problems for everyone in the family until one by one we stopped talking to her. I was last because I could not believe she could not change.

Back to the subject, Saddam and his offer to leave Iraq, if paid.

Excuse the back story here, necessary to explain how I found out what was happening.

It was spring, 2002. Fund had tried to have Morgan murdered, sending someone to her apartment late at night with a key. The dead bolt was not engaged. Morgan, standing next to the door, which lead directly into the small kitchen, threw herself on the door, dropping the phone. She screeched. I was on the other end of the phone, hearing this. Gabbling into the phone, hysterical, she told me what had happened. I told her to call the doorman. A photo was caught of a burly man leaving the building. On my instructions she then called the police. They never arrived.

A bolt hole was arranged for with a couple in Georgia who knew about the battering Morgan had suffered from Fund earlier.

Now, what I am going to tell you was conveyed to me by Morgan. I had long since learned she could not be trusted to tell the truth. The Weaselsearch Tape came into existence because she and I were arguing about her having had a relationship with Fund. He had denied this to me only a few months earlier. The Tape proved, on this occasion at least, Morgan was telling the truth.

Not trusting someone and wanted them hurt or dead can be two very different matters.

Morgan and I had been looking for someone to help with the Fund matter that spring. Morgan asserted Fund still had items belonging to her. She wanted them returned. I eventually retained an attorney for her named Gary Fish. Otherwise, Morgan handled these issues herself.

Enter Sidney Blumenthal

Morgan called during this period to tell me Sidney Blumenthal, who had refused to help her, unconcerned about the attempt on her life. Email, June 23, 2002.

Around this time someone put a device put on Morgan's computer. She called me, outraged, she said, when the information appeared in drafts of Sydney's book, “Clinton's War.” She then told me she had returned the favor, putting the same thing on Blumenthal's computer. This was apparently true because she started sending me copies of emails Blumenthal wrote his wife and chapters of the book which were passing between him and his editor.

I told her what she was doing was illegal and she should stop but consider reporting Blumenthal to the appropriate authorities.

Morgan ignored my advice, as usual. I was likely being naive, anyway.

There was a lot on my plate and Morgan, then in her early 30s, was not my top priority. I was then, and am still, the sole caretaker for my son, Arthur. He is disabled from two major brain injuries, the first caused by a motorcycle accident, the second from a suicide attempt six months later. These and other family responsibilities, plus being disabled myself, caused me to put Morgan on the back burner when I knew she was physically safe.

Giving up trying to change Morgan, I told her to stop sending me Sidney's emails and other correspondence.

But in November of 2002 Morgan called me up and asked if Uday was the same as E-bay. Morgan did not follow current events unless she was somehow involved herself. She has always been this way.

The conversation resulted in her sending me an email between Blumenthal and his son about a correspondence then ongoing. Max Blumenthal was sending on emails to Uday. Uday was providing information to his father and sending back his father's responses.

The chain of dialog began with Saddam and ended with the Clintons. They, the Clintons, were trying to persuade Saddam the build up to war was just bluff. Saddam, it seemed, had contacted the Bush White House by some method not discussed in correspondence with the offer to leave Iraq if he was paid.

Needless to say this was a shock. Perhaps it is a joke, I thought.

Copying the code part of the email I emailed it to Dr. Dean Ahmad, a good friend of mine, who I knew would be able to tell me where it originated. Dean said it was from the Emirates and well could have originated from Baghdad.

It is possible I am naive but it never occurred to me, and was not included in the correspondence I saw, that the Bush administration knew this was going on. With most Americans, I remembered what had transpired between the Clintons and NeoCons who were now firmly entrenched in the White House. It seemed more likely to me the Clintons, for some reason not in evidence, were doing this for their own purposes. But I thought it was my responsibility to report it to someone – but not Bush, who I well knew could not be trusted.

The only person I knew who I thought I could trust was Donald Steury, who is married to an old childhood friend, Rochelle Wandzera. Rochelle and I had remained close over the years and I saw them when I was in the DC area and they visited me in California when they were out there. Donald was then the historian for the CIA.

This information was conveyed to Donald with Morgan's contact information.

As soon as Donald retired last year the couple stopped talking to me or returning my emails. The matter of Saddam had never been discussed after my report in 2002. Until then Shelly and I chatted regularly but I felt she was becoming increasingly distant.

It is possible I would not have believed Morgan or taken any action if not for having directly discussed the matter with Eric Buchanan. Eric and Martha Buchanan were the couple Morgan was then living with in Roswell, Georgia. Eric confirmed what was happening. He and Morgan had managed to bug Uday's computer, too, he told me. The subject line had read – Women without Veils. The last phone number I had for Eric is:404 276-7351

A short while later Morgan told me the FBI had contacted her and asked she continue to monitor UDay's computer. This surprised me. She told me she was doing so and reporting to them as events unfolded. I had no direct contact.

Morgan called to tell me the ping she was receiving from Uday's computer moved to CIA Headquarters in Virginia when the bunker buster hit Saddam's bunker at the beginning of the war. I turned on the news and the announcement took place a short while later.

Unnerved and shocked I did not ask for any proof. My expectation has been that there would be some kind of inquiry or investigation regarding what the Clinton's had done. Nothing of the kind took place, of course.

Eventually, the billions of unexplained money surfaced. A friend of mine in whom had confided, Connie Ruffley, who runs the Western Office for Judicial Watch, commented this was probably the Saddam Pay-Off cash. That had not occurred to me before her comment about 4 months ago.

As the War in Iraq swung into full action I had a sinking feeling. I was not surprised when, later, the Clintons experienced sudden wealth.

It was impossible not to know someone was working very hard to destroy me financially and damage my credibility over the next years. If you want documentation for anything, just ask. There is another chunk of story here which also points to more forms of conspiracy and corruption from the Bush White House but I'm trying to keep this short.

I tried to get the story out in my book, “Greed – The NeoConning of America,” published in 2004. That did not work.
