I think its worthy to give you an idea of how much money this guy was getting. The British papers are estimating 375,000 British pounds a year. That's nearly $600,000 a year for over ten years, or over six million dollars. And this is on one guy. It seems to me very likely that one of Iraqi intelligence's major duties was funding the pro-Iraq/anti-war/anti-sanctions movements in the West, and it sounds like they had quite a budget to do it with.
