For what it's worth ... the BS files

You remember the X-files?

This report belongs in the files we have labeled the BS-files:

DUBAI, U.A.E. (AP) - Deposed Iraqi president Saddam Hussein accepted an 11th-hour offer to flee into exile weeks ahead of the U.S.-led 2003 invasion but Arab League officials scuttled the proposal, officials in Dubai said.

The exile initiative was spearheaded by the late president of the United Arab Emirates, Sheik Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, at an emergency Arab summit held in Egypt in February 2003, Sheik Zayed's son said in an interview aired by Al-Arabiya TV during a documentary. The U.S.-led coalition invaded March 19 that year.

A dead sheik offers an offer of exile that we mysteriously are hearing about only as Hussein goes on trial for his life.

Like we said: BS-Files.
