“In August 1995, one of Saddam Hussein’s sons-in-law, General Hussein Kamel, defected to Jordan…Kamel was Iraq’s minister of industry and director of its Military Industrial Corporation (MIC), with responsibility for all of the country’s weapons programs. During debriefings in Jordan, he claimed that all chemical and biological weapons had been destroyed on his orders in 1991. The statement was certainly significant, but without any corroborating evidence it could not be given credibility.” [The 15th of the month used for date sorting purposes only.]
