Comprehensive Report of the Special Advisor to the DCI on Iraq's WMD

For those who are interested....

The entire CIA report on Iraq and their program to develop Weapons of Mass Destruction can be found at the following link: Comprehensive Report of the Special Advisor to the DCI on Iraq�s WMD: "This report relays the findings of the Special Advisor to the Director of Central Intelligence on Iraq's Weapons of Mass Destruction." Be forwarned that the report is HUGE and will take about a half hour to download with high-speed internet access. If you have a dial-up, don't even try it.

Of course the American New Media is broadcasting that this report states that there were were no stockpiles of WMD's in Iraq--which is true.


There were definately weapon development programs in place, and Sadam DID have stockpiles of WMD's that were destroyed in the 1990 Gulf War. He's been trying desperately to restock, but was prevented from doing so by the sanctions placed on him after the war.

Sadly, the sanctions were being routinely violated by France, Russia and China who were making backdoor deals with Saddam, and flooding him with cash. That cash went into weapon procurment, and kept his WMD programs alive. He did not have quite enough cash and equipment to begin building WMD's again, but he was certainly well on his way to achieving that goal.
