Overview

Allegedly, Iraqi then-president Saddam Hussein had planned to have then-former United States president George H.W. Bush assassinated when Bush was visiting Kuwait in April of 1993, in retaliation for Bush's involvement in the Gulf War. The plot was used by US then-president Bill Clinton as justification for launching a missile attack on Baghdad in June.

The existence of the plot has since been called into question.
