To: Ambassador John Weston, Permanent Mission of U.K. to the U.N.

From: Ramsey Clark

Nov. 11, 1998:

President Clinton has chosen the anniversary of the armistice ending World War I to further threaten Iraq with another violent assault. He charges that failure to act “would permanently damage the credibility of the U.N. Security Council to act as a force for promoting international peace.”… [Mr. Clinton] taunts the U.N. to act, asserting “Failure to respond [will] embolden Saddam to act recklessly.” It is a threat by a weakened President thinking only of his personal political standing… It is imperative to world peace, the survival of the U.N. as an organization of independent nations and to simple justice that the Security Council immediately inform the U.S. that it must not again attack Iraq, or any other country.

Editor’s note: Mr. Clark, a former U.S. attorney general, is a member of Saddam Hussein’s defense team.
