JUST WHEN you were reaching for that camembert that's well past it's use-by date, there's this:

An unknown number of Iraqis who worked for Saddam Hussein's government were given passports by French officials in Syria, U.S. intelligence officials said. The passports are regarded as documents of the European Union, because of France's membership in the union, and have helped the Iraqis avoid capture

I wonder what they knew about whom.
