(Scotsman-UK) Fraser Nelson - The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, whose history of terrorism dates back to the "black September" hijackings of 1970, was personally vetted by Saddam Hussein to receive oil vouchers worth £40 million, according to U.S. investigators from the Iraq Survey Group (ISG).
