Inspectors conclude "No WMD since 1994"

UN Inspectors 'Believe Saddam Had No Wmd after 1994'

By Mark Sage, PA News, in New York


The justification for the Iraq war came under fresh doubt today amid a report that UN weapons inspectors believe Saddam Hussein had no significant weapons of mass destruction after 1994.

The claim, made in an American newspaper by two unnamed UN diplomats, comes weeks after former US chief weapons inspector David Kay said he no longer thought WMDs would be found in Iraq.

The diplomats were citing a report by weapons inspectors which will be presented to the United Nations today.

It is expected to go before the Security Council by as early as Friday.

If the diplomats? claims are correct, the weapons report would go further than pre-war UN reports, which said that while no WMDs had been found, Iraq had not fully accounted for weapons it was known to have had at the end of the Gulf War in 1991.

The new report is based on information gathered over more than seven years of UN inspections in Iraq, up to 2003, as well as post-war findings disclosed by Dr Kay.

Its findings were reported by the USA Today newspaper.

Dr Kay stepped down in January from his post as the head of the CIA-led Iraq Survey Group, which has been searching for WMDs since the end of the war.

After his resignation he told the Senate Armed Services Committee: ?I believe that the effort that has been directed to this point has been sufficiently intense.

?And it is highly unlikely that there were large stockpiles of deployed, militarised chemical and biological weapons there.?

See, all it took was inspectors to go in there, have unrestricted access, and they can say OK, no WMD's here. If Saddam had allowed htem to do so, he'd still be in power, torturing and gassing minorities, dissidents and anyone who opposed him. Damm shame he didn't.

Once the pressure was on, Saddam did exactly that. He let them look wherever.

And once he let them look wherever, Bush began rushing the war so no one would get a chance to say "he doesn't have anything".

Who knows what goes on in the mind of a neocon? The middle east along with Afghanistan (access to the Caspian oil fields) are going to be of vital strategic importance - be useful for the US to have puppet governments in it's pocket.
