Roll Call

January 30th, 2004 - 12:16 am

ABC News did us all a service and organized the alleged (?) beneficiaries of Saddam’s oil slush fund by country.

(Click on the MORE button below to see the whole thing.)

The two Americans listed are Samir Vincent and Shakir Alkhalaji. A quick Google turned up nothing on Alkhalaji, but Vincent earned some fame in 2000 as one of the Iraqi exiles of 1958 who wanted the sanctions lifted, calling them a “political dead end.”

Strangely enough, Vincent also worked with Jack Kemp’s Empower America last year, on a program aimed at (I swear I’m not making this up) creating some kind of a “Marshall Plan” for California.

And while I don’t know if this means anything, a lot of his Google hits were in French.

The guy gets around.
