Iraq, no WMD stockpiles, but intent to develop


The top U.S. inspector in Iraq says there were, in fact, no weapons stockpiles under Saddam Hussein, according to drafts of new report. However, the 1,500-page document does say there were signs the deposed Iraqi president did have dormant programs he hoped to revive at a later time. The report is from the head of the Iraq Survey Group, Charles Duelfer. And, in it, he will reportedly say Hussein was: Importing banned materials Working on unmanned aerial vehicles in violation of UN agreements Maintaining a dual-use industrial sector that could produce weapons. Duelfer also said Iraq only had small research-and-development programs for chemical and biological weapons.
Translation: Saddam Hussein did not abide by U.N. Resolution 1441.
