US Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld meeting Saddam Hussein on 19-20 December 1983. Rumsfeld, who supported Hussein in the 80's, led the coalition forces later in 2003 against him

CIA activities in IraQ.
Saddam Hussein, while only in his early 20s, became a part of a U.S. plot to get rid of Abd al-Karim Qasim. Hussein was installed in an apartment in Baghdad on al-Rashid Street directly opposite Qassim's office in Iraq's Ministry of Defense, to observe Qassim's movements. The move was done with full knowledge of the CIA, and Hussein's CIA handler was an Iraqi dentist working for CIA and Egyptian intelligence..Hussein made a visit to Amman in the year 1979, before the Iran--Iraq War, where he met three senior CIA agents. He discussed with them his plans to invade Iran..In 1980, Iraq started the war with a blitzkrieg attack..On July 25, 1990 following tensions with Kuwait, Saddam Hussein met with United States Ambassador to Baghdad, April Glaspie, in one of the last high-level contacts between the two Governments before the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait
on August 2. Iraqi Government officials published a transcript of the meeting, which also included the Iraqi Foreign Minister, Tariq Aziz. A copy was provided to The New York Times by ABC News, which was translated from Arabic. The U.S. State Department has declined to comment on its accuracy

Tariq Aziz told PBS Frontline in 1996 how the Iraqi leadership was under "no illusion" about America's affairs in the region: "She [Glaspie] didn't tell us anything strange. She didn't tell us in the sense that we concluded that the Americans will not retaliate.

That was nonsense you see. It was nonsense to think that the Americans would attack us. And in a second 2000 interview with the same television program

There were no mixed signals.
