SUBJECT: The Stakes in the Search for Weapons of Mass Destruction
The Bush administration's refusal to allow UN inspectors to join the hunt for weapons of mass destruction in U.S.-occupied Iraq has elicited high interest in foreign news media. The most widely accepted interpretation is that the U.S. is well aware that evidence regarding the existence and location of such weapons is "shaky" (the adjective now favored by UN chief weapons inspector Hans Blix), and that the last thing the Pentagon wants is to have Blix' inspectors looking over the shoulders of U.S. forces as they continue their daunting quest.
