Saddam’s presidential secretary Abed Hamid Mahmud “described a very sensitive document Saddam had written and signed in three copies. It was a presidential decree Saddam created immediately after the bombing by [President Bill] Clinton in December [16-19] 1998. The decree declared that Iraq would not simply comply with nor recognize the [UN] Security Council resolutions, and would no longer recognize Kuwait.” [The 25th of the month used for date sorting purposes only.]
