  CBS News | Report: Israel Targeted Saddam | December 16, 2003 23:48:10
"Operation Bramble Bush," the plot to assassinate Saddam with a missile attack, was shelved in 1992 after five elite commandos were killed training for the mission.
The job was given to Sayeret Matkal, an elite commando unit that had carried out other daring operations, including the 1976 raid that freed Israeli hostages from a hijacked plane in Entebbe, Uganda.
On Nov. 5, 1992, the commandos staged a dress rehearsal in the Negev Desert.

 Brambles
Brambles are commonly found in most woodlands, hedges, shrub and waste grounds, but are thinner on the ground in the more northern parts of Britain.
Brambles is the perfect nursery maid to small vulnerable seedling trees by creating a safe environment from grazing animals.
Brambles were often used in the past to make a woven framework for walls, which then would be plastered with whatever local materials were available (from cow-dung, mud and horsehair to various mixtures of lime-based plaster).

Its blossoms, as well as its fruits, both green and ripe, may be seen on the bush: at the same time, a somewhat unusual feature, not often met with in other plants.
We read of it as far back as the days of Jonathan, when he upbraided the men of Shechem for their ingratitude to his father's house, relating to them the parable of the trees choosing a king, the humble bramble being finally elected, after the olive, fig-tree and vine had refused the dignity.
Gerard and other herbalists regard the bramble as a valuable astringent, whether eaten or applied: its leaves 'heal the eies that hang out,' and are a most useful application for piles, its fruit stops looseness of the bowels and is good for stone, and for soreness in mouth and throat.

Bush is not the puppet of the vice president or the Defense Department hawks.
Bush's oratory - and his justification for the Iraq War - is an example of a preventive war, not a pre-emptive one.
To Bush administration officials, a win in the case is vital to establish the principle that the president should be able to receive candid advice in private -- and cannot do so if his advisers, up to and including the vice president, know that their deliberations will eventually be made public.

But Operation Bramble Bush, as it was code-named, was cancelled after a rehearsal exercise in Israel’s Negev desert went awry, with five soldiers being killed and a soldier playing the part of Saddam Hussein injured after a missile was fired at the wrong time.
Critics, however, described the operation as being "fraught with short-sightedness".
With the wisdom of hindsight, the former prime minister and current finance minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, said chances were "low to very low" that he would have approved such an operation because of the chances of failure and the prospect that Saddam might retaliate with biological weapons.
