Real-To: "John K. Whitley"

Read this factual and horrifying news item from
the highly-respected British OBSERVER
newspaper, and weep!

You certainly won't be seeing this in any U.S.
newspapers soon!

Clinton not only callously murdered numerous
innocent Sudanese in this "wag the dog" cruise
missile strike, but has also condemned
numerous other Sudanese to death by
destroying one of the few and precious
manufacturing plants for medicine in that
famine- and disease-ravaged country.

Not to mention the innocent Americans who
will find death unexpectedly visited upon them
as enraged Islamic terrorists take their revenge
around the world and within the U.S.'s own

What a price to pay for Monica's favours...!


LONDON OBSERVER, Sunday Aug 23, 1998


American tests showed no trace of nerve gas
at 'deadly' Sudan plant. The President ordered
the attack anyway

in Belfast , and Shyam Bhatia and Martin Bright
Sunday August 23, 1998

President Bill Clinton knew he was bombing a
civilian target when he ordered the United States
attack on a Sudan chemical plant. Tests ordered
by him showed that no nerve gas was on the site
and two British professionals who recently worked
at the factory said it clearly had no military purpose.

The disclosure will deepen the crisis, following the
American attacks on Afghanistan and Sudan, in
relations between the US and its Muslim allies,
who have called upon Clinton to produce hard
evidence that the attacks had a legitimate
relevance to the war against international

The US claims that the Al-Shifa Pharmaceuticals
Industries plant in North Khartoum was producing
the ingredients for the deadly VX nerve gas. But
Sudan's assertion that it produced 50 per cent of
the country's drug requirements is much closer
to the truth.

Several vital pieces of evidence point to this
conclusion. US forces flew a reconnaissance
mission to test for traces of gas and reported
that there were none. Nevertheless Clinton
immediately authorised the attack. He was
also told that the absence of gas would avoid
the horrifying spectacle of civilian casualties.
Sudan has said 10 people were injured, five

Belfast independent film-maker Irwin Armstrong,
who visited the plant last year while making a
promotional video for the Sudanese ambassador
in London, said: "The Americans have got this
completely wrong.

"In other parts of the country I encountered
heavy security but not here. I was allowed to
wander about quite freely. This is a perfectly
normal chemical factory with the things you
would expect - stainless steel vats and

Tom Carnaffin, of Hexham, Northumberland,
worked as a technical manager from 1992 to
1996 for the Baaboud family, who own the plant.

"I have intimate knowledge of that factory and
it just does not lend itself to the manufacture
of chemical weapons," he said.

"The Americans claimed that the weapons were
being manufactured in the veterinary part of the
factory. I have intimate knowledge of that part of
the [plant] and unless there have been some
radical changes in the last few months, it just
isn't equipped to cope with the demands of
chemical weapon manufacturing.

"You need things like airlocks but this factory
just has doors leading out onto the street. The
factory was in the process of being sold to a
Saudi Arabian. They are allies of the Americans
and I don't think it would look very good in the
prospectus that the factory was also
manufacturing weapons for Baghdad.

"I have personal knowledge of the need for
medicine in Sudan as I almost died while
working out there. The loss of this factory is
a tragedy for the rural communities who need
those medicines."

The engineer, who has said he will be
returning to Sudan in the near future to
carry out more work for the Baaboud family,
condemned the American attack and its
resulting loss of life.

"It's a funny feeling to think that I had a cup
of tea in that place and the security guard
on the gate who used to say hello to me is
very probably now dead. The Baabouds are
absolutely gutted about this. People who they
knew personally have been killed - it is very

Meanwhile, an assurance that British targets
will not be included in any retaliatory strikes
has come from sources close to Osama bin
Laden, the multimillionaire Saudi
fundamentalist believed to be behind the twin
bombings of US embassies in East Africa.

Bin Laden, who survived the American
air-strikes on his training camp inside
Afghanistan, telephoned the editor of the
London-based Arabic daily newspaper al
Quds al Arabi to declare he was only
interested in hitting the US and Israel.

By David Hirst in Khartoum

The Observer - Sunday, August 23, 1998

Whatever Al Shifa Pharmaceuticals Industries Company did produce -
precursors for the VX nerve gas, according to the United States, or
50 per cent of Sudan's drug requirements, according to its own staff -
it was very precisely targeted indeed.

The projectiles that smashed into it at about 7.30 local time on
Thursday evening went unerringly to the heart of the plant, and
nothing else - not even the Sweets and Sesame factory so physically
close that, at first sight it looks like an integral part.

Al Shifa certainly did not try to hide its existence. Signs in plenty direct you to it long before you get there. But to find it with such pinpoint accuracy from the air was no small achievement.

The Khartoum North district in which it is located is an amorphous, dismal suburbia, semi-residential, semi-industrial without obvious landmarks; steeped in dust for most of the year, its largely unpaved roads and alleyways ankle-deep in the rainy season's mud.

The factory's core is flattened. The roof is almost on the ground. Here and there smoke still rises from the debris; the still burning chemicals give it a mildy unpleasant odour. There is no sign amid the wreckage of anything sinister. Of course, for the layman, there probably wouldn't be anyway.

But there is no sign of anyone trying to hide anything either. Access is easy. Much of Khartoum seems to have come to take a look. Women in long bright dresses, and even high heels, pick their way through the mud and jump across roadside gutters to get a closer view. Most stare
in what seems to be disbelieving silence.

"I still can't quite believe it's gone," said Dr Alamaddin Shibli, the factory's export manager. "I still have to knock my head into realising that when I come here I'm coming to a complete ruin." He pointed to his office on the third floor of the administrative building. "On Thursday, I had gone home earlier than I usually do." He was not the only lucky one. "If the Americans had chosen Wednesday evening, instead of Thursday, it would have been a disaster."

About 300 people worked in the factory, he said, but on Wednesday evening a shift of 50 had been working on a special assignment of veterinary products.

These were destined for Iraq, commissioned by the United Nations under its food-for-oil programme. "I suppose the Americans would say that one Arab producer of chemical weapons was supplying them to another - Saddam Hussein."

He says the factory was one of the biggest and best of its kind in Africa. It was privately owned, and had changed hands since it went into production two years ago; the new owner was a Sudanese living in Saudi Arabia. It had been partly financed by the Eastern and Southern African Preferential Trade Association, a thoroughly respectable body.

It produced the full range of antibiotics, medicines for malaria, rheumatism, tuberculosis and diabetes, you name it. Samples of its products lay around the reception area: Shifatryp, Shifamol, and in a plastic bag with the picture of an eagle on it, Shifacef proclaimed its Continued Efficiency Over the Years.

Apart from the administration block, only two parts of the factory were not unrecognisably demolished. One was the water-cooling works, which Shibli called the most modern in Africa, with its equipment from Italy and the United States. The other was the laboratory - for him, the most important loss. It is very badly damaged, but amid the rubble rows of phials remained discernibly intact.

The Sudanese government, which the US accuses of sponsoring international terrorism, seems to think it now has all the evidence it needs to incriminate the US. It wants a United Nations team to investigate.

"This is what we will show them," Shibli said. "In those bottles are the reagents that will prove what we really produced here - and it wasn't chemical weapons."
