“…a former senior Iraqi intelligence officer–a brigadier general–told the Los Angeles Times [on June 8, 2003] that Saddam’s intelligence services had set up a clandestine network of cells and small laboratories in the mid-1990s, with the aim of someday rebuilding the means to manufacture banned chemical and biological weapons. The officer reported that while no banned weapons existed to be discovered, they could have been quickly produced as soon as the UN sanctions against Iraq were lifted.”
