In the February 24, 2003, edition of The Scotsman, Tim Cornwell wrote: ” ‘The highest ranking defector ever to turn informant on Saddam Hussein’s government told United Nations weapons inspectors in 1995 that Iraq had destroyed all its chemical and biological weapons stocks after the Gulf War. But UN inspectors hushed up that part of [General] Hussein Kamal’s story–which he also told to debriefers from British and United States intelligence–because they wanted to keep pressure on Iraq to tell more.’ ”
