Thanks for the memories, Saddam. We've got him. We've always had him.

Eric Blumrich's excellent animation: "Thanks for the Memories" describes Hussein's rise to power as a CIA asset and the U.S. support given to his barbaric regime for decades.

Quiz: Which member of the Iraq Study Group gave Hussein the green light to invade Kuwait by sending a message via US Ambassador Gillespie? Answer: In the video.

"As the world watched the military build up at the Kuwaiti border, Saddam called a meeting with then US ambassador April Gillespie, who told Saddam: "We have no opinion on the Arab-Arab conflicts, like your border disagreement with Kuwait." She went on to say: "___________________ has directed our official spokesmen to emphasize this instruction." (San Francisco Examiner, 11/18/02)

Which member of the Iraq Study Group directed Gillespie to EMPHASIZE that the US would not get involved?
