1,575. 10/31/1999

“By the end of October, 1999, Iraq had asked for the departure of the weapons inspection team from its territory, but then in an about-turn announced its intention to cooperate unconditionally with UNSCOM [United Nations Special Commission, the inspection group that searched for WMD]. This was not sufficient, however, to stop the UNSCOM chairman, Richard Butler, from declaring that Iraq was withholding its full cooperation.” [The 31st of the month used for date sorting purposes only.]
