TRUTH LEFT OUT: Who Was That Iraqi Woman During The State of The Union Address?

Ever wonder who that Iraqi woman was during the State of The Union Speech?
"Eleven years ago, Safia's father was assassinated by Saddam's intelligence service. Three days ago in Baghdad, Safia was finally able to vote for the leaders of her country -- and we are honored that she is with us tonight."
- President Bush
Well, it turns out that her father was assassinated in Lebanon and perhaps, because of the U.S. government's lack of trust in this man. As this article describes, a coup attempt in 1993 was apparently compromised by the American government when her father's covert accomplices were exposed to Saddam.

Why did she attend Bush's speech if this is true, you may ask? The article hypothesizes that this "special" treatment may be payback in order to continue the cover-up.
