IRAQ: Saddam Hussein's son-in-law and other defectors

Paul Simon rightly says of Iraq: "There have been other defectors besides Saddam's son-in-law. Many weapons scientists, at least one major ambassador, and many military officers have defected. Recently a member of the presidential bodyguard defected". RH: I guess that many of the Iraqis who assembled recently in London were defectors. I trust that they provided valuable information, but exiles are always resented by those who stayed at home. Hence our caution in dealing with the London group.
