In an article in The Washington Post on August 10, 2003, Barton Gellman and Walter Pincus wrote: ” ‘In one of many debriefings by U.S., Jordanian and U.N. officials, [Iraqi defector General Hussein] Kamal said on Aug. 22, 1995, that Iraq’s uranium enrichment programs had not resumed after halting at the start of the Gulf War in 1991. According to notes typed for the record by U.N. arms inspector Nikita Smidovich, Kamal acknowledged efforts to design three different warheads, *but not now, before the [first] Gulf War.* ‘ ”
