"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

Reprint of an article published in 1997 making the claim that the Palestinian Authority embassy in Baghdad is used as a storage facility for Saddam's WMD documents and WMD themselves.

The alleged existence of secret repositories which effectively are off limits to the UN Special Commission (UNSCOM) was reported to its British chairman, Richard Butler, in a confidential letter sent by the Iraqi exiles on September 16. Its text contains these passages:

"We learned certain information from sources in Baghdad which will be of use to you.

"We believe there are documents regarding Iraq's weapons of mass destruction hidden in St. Joseph's Church in the Dora district. The church is on the main street across from the Assyrian market.

"There are also important documents being stored at the Baghdad residence of President Yasser Arafat in the Jadiriya district."
