I am sorry, but did you actually read the article? "Iraq asked foreign companies to give it cash on top of the goods bought under the oil for food deal" Hassan knew that Saddam tried to get money illegally from the oil for food deal: "Iraq tried to make companies pay an extra 15 cents per barrel outside the discount to provide the cash it needed" He also seems to have known where the money was spent on. (I wonder how he managed to!!) Was any money spent on building humble palaces by any chance?
