Saddam paid for lawmakers' Iraq trip

(Source: AP) It appears some Democratic lawmakers may have a lot to answer for, as a new scandal involving Saddam Hussein has emerged. Federal prosecutors believe Muthanna al-Hanooti, a co-founder of FAAIR (Focus on Amrican and Arab Interests and Relations) and former public relations director for the Islamic Relief Association (a group with alleged connections to Hamas and al-Qaida), arranged for 3 members of US congress to visit Iraq in 2002, all expenses paid for by Saddam’s oil via his intelligence agency.

Although names are not mentioned, the dates would correspond to trips made to Iraq by Democratic Reps. Jim McDermott,  David Binior and Mike Thompson.

Wait a minute. You mean the Dems are somehow connected to the oil for food scandal?! Say it ain't so!
