Al Jazeera was on Saddam's payroll

The MEMRI blog has an interesting document from Iraq, a letter dated September 2002 referring to a recent decision by the Iraqi Council of Ministers under Saddam Hussein to make monthly payments of 50,000 Euros to ... Al Jazeera Television.
How much was he giving others? We know CNN acted as his press agency for the right to have a bureau there. We know now he paid Al-Jazeera. It's the pressies we don't yet know about that concerns me most. Oh, I am sure there are others. Aren't you?
