President Bush said Saturday that Tariq Aziz is not cooperating with U.S. forces who have him in custody since April 24.
The former Iraqi deputy prime minister was the most visible face of the former Iraqi government other than Saddam's, and Aziz was the official who made Iraq's case before the world when it invaded Kuwait in 1990.
U.S. officials had hoped that Aziz could provide information about the deposed president's whereabouts and Iraq's weapons. "Tariq Aziz still doesn't know how to tell the truth," Bush said. "He didn't know how to tell the truth when he was in office. He doesn't know to tell the truth when he's been — as a captive." (Albawaba.com)
