Can anybody help me to pinpoint the source or news story that originally mentioned this conspiracy...? I've been going nuts looking for anything
relating to this:
All I can recall is I was watching a special BBC or CNN broadcast in 2005 or 2006, (sorry I can't be more specific) featuring a reporter standing
inside a bombed out building in Baghdad shortly after the fall of Iraq in 2003. The building was a former Baath Party government office, and the story
was mentioning the destruction and chaos Baghdad had suffered. He then mentioned something about looting and how the streets were strewn with papers
and documents. After which, he showed in his hand a set of documents he claimed to have found in the building revealing that throughout the 1980's
and 1990's the UK was forcing Iraq to supply with them a truckload of oil a year under threat of invasion from the UK and US or making some sort of
secret arrangement with them in exchange for oil. Something of that nature....
Apparently the reporter had sent these papers to some government official or authority in the UK and inquired about it on a serious level and an
official response was even released saying it's a complete falsehood and that the UK never forced Iraq to supply oil.
Unfortunately I didn't catch all of the report, and I have not since come across anything remotely similiar being reported on in the news media or
from alternative sources...
I'm wondering if anyone can help ascertain the source of this info and whether there is any basis to the allegations?
