In making his presentation to the UN Security Council on February 5, 2003, Secretary of State Colin Powell said: ” ‘When [the inspectors] searched the home of an Iraqi nuclear scientist, they uncovered roughly 2,000 pages of documents. …Some of the material is classified and related to Iraq’s nuclear program. Tell me, answer me: Are the inspectors to search the house of every government official, every Ba’ath Party member and every scientist in the country to find the truth, to get the information they need to satisfy the demands of our council?’ ”
