In his address to the UN Security Council on February 5, 2003, Secretary of State Colin Powell said: ” ‘Saddam Hussein has investigated dozens of biological agents, causing diseases such as gas gangrene, plague, typhus, tetanus, cholera, camel pox, and hemorrhagic fever. And he also has the wherewithal to develop smallpox.’ Then he warned, ‘One of the most worrisome things that emerges from the thick intelligence pile we have on Iraq’s biological weapons is the existence of mobile production facilities used to make biological agents.’ ”
