" THE TYPES OF RESEARCH IRAQ HAS BEEN KNOWN TO HAVE CONDUCTED POINTS TO THEIR INTEREST IN BIOLOGICAL WEAPONS NOT JUST AS A BATTLEFIELD WEAPON BUT AS A STRATEGIC WEAPON, AN ECONOMIC WEAPON, A TERROR WEAPON, AND POSSIBLY A GENOCIDE WEAPON "
Deputy Chairman of UNSCOM
In Congressional testimony back in 2000. Reprinted in the critically acclaimed The Gathering Storm
by Kenneth Pollack on page 173. I don't recall this as front page news in the New York Times. I don't recall the Clinton administration stalwarts, currently engaged kibbitzing on North Korean policy, reacting with alacrity or even a public comment. If there was at any time in the last 100 years an administration more careless with national security, more obtuse to America's national interests and contemptuous of messengers bearing bad news I am hard pressed to think of it. The Clinton crowd made Jimmy Carter and Cyrus Vance look like Dwight Eisenhower and John Foster Dulles.
