Saddam ordered fighters to keep their distance from foreign militants: "Saddam Hussein told his followers to keep their distance from foreign Arab militants crossing into Iraq to fight American troops, according to a document found with the dictator when he was captured last month.... Officials, widely believed to be from the CIA or the State Department where there was considerable opposition to the Pentagon's drive for war, said Saddam feared that the Arabs' enthusiasm for holy war against the West conflicted with his supporters' attempts to return him to power."
