The Canadian company that Saddam Hussein invested a million dollars in belonged to the Prime Minister of Canada, has discovered.

Cordex Petroleum Inc., launched with Saddam’s million by Prime Minister Paul Martin’s mentor Maurice Strong’s son Fred Strong, is listed among Martin’s assets to the Federal Ethics committee on November 4, 2003.

Among Martin’s Public Declaration of Declarable Assets are: "The Canada Steamship Lines Group Inc. (Montreal, Canada) 100 percent owned"; "Canada Steamship Lines Inc. (Montreal, Canada) 100 percent owned"–Cordex Petroleums Inc. (Alberta, Canada) 4.6 percent owned by the CSL Group Inc."

Yesterday, Strong admitted that Tongsun Park, the Korean man accused by U.S. federal authorities of illegally acting as an Iraqi agent, invested in Cordex, the company he owned with his son, in 1997.

In that admission, Strong describes Cordex as a Denver-based company. Cordex Petroleum Inc. is listed among Martin’s assets as an Alberta-based company.

Cordex had a U.S. subsidiary.

Two years after taking the Park-through-Saddam one million dollars, Cordex went out of business.

On April 20, 1999,, an internet bankruptcy library states Kelly J. Sweeney Esquire of the Office of the Trustee in Denver, Col. as appointing four individuals to serve on an official creditor’s committee in the Chapter 11 case "commenced by Cordex Petroleum Inc."

Strong’s New Age Baca Ranch is located in Crestone, Colorado.

Indeed, according to Marci McDonald in Walrus Magazine, "Cordex Petroleums was formerly known as Baca Resources." (April 21, 2004). . . . .

Oh bloody h*ll. The more we learn about the Liberal government, the more shocked I become. Jeez, these guys are starting to make the Democrats appear marginally ethical by comparison.

There are just too many liberal politicians, even in the U.S., that were just too protective of Saddam.

Saddam bought so many liberal politicians and UN reps that he thought he had bought immunity.

Our media won't look for any Saddam connections to the Democrats and they would bury any such findings.

Saddam bribed every corrupt sc*mbag on Earth from Chirac to George Galloway to Kofi Annan to the Liberal Party in Canada.

I'll bet the farm that money flowed into the democrat party in the USA. Absolutely. Without a doubt

Now we can see why Canada was against us going after Iraq and Saddam.

Cretien and his family are significant shareholders in Elf Fina/Total Petroleum, a major pre-invasion beneficiary of Iraqi oil, while Martin and his mentor Maurice Strong and a host of unsavory characters invested in oil companies operating in Iraq. The stink will become huge as this monumental scam unfolds.
