In December 2001, “a high-ranking Iraqi engineer named Adnan Saeed defected to the United States and told American officials about the locations and details of sites that Saddam was still using to store chemical, biological and nuclear materials. According to the New York Times [on December 20, 2001], ‘Mr. Saeed said that several of the production and storage facilities were hidden in the rear of government companies and private villas in residential areas, or underground in what were built to look like water wells which are lined with lead-filled concrete and contain no water.’ ”
