The Oil-for-Food [for Saddam and his henchmen] Program

The Ranger fired a barrage of emails at me today, most of them containing news article links.
One of them said this:
If you are looking for a challenge, sort through this and give me a report or poster presentation.

He linked a FoxNews investigative piece(Possible Saddam-Al Qaeda Link Seen in U.N. Oil-for-Food Program), with Claudia Rosette as the contributor. It's a dense story and I don't have the flow chart all worked out yet, but Claudia broke this oil for food scandal story months ago, both Hugh Hewitt and Lileks talked about it a lot. Now Fox News will air a special on it Sunday night at 9pm. Cause really, how else did Saddam afford all those palaces?
