“[T]he head of the Iraq Survey Group, David Kay, claimed in a statement about his interim report of October 2, 2003, that the group had discovered ‘dozens of WMD-related program activities and significant amounts of equipment that Iraq had concealed from the United Nations during the inspections that began in late 2002.’ … Laboratories, chemicals and equipment like fermentors are said to have been found, which could have dual use–i.e., may be used both for legitimate peaceful purposes and for prohibited purposes. However, this is hardly enough for a conclusion that they were actually used or intended to be used for proscribed purposes.”
