The Iraq Survey Group released the Duelfer Report on September 30, 2004. It concluded: ” ‘Saddam wanted to recreate Iraq’s WMD capacity–which was essentially destroyed in 1991–after sanctions were removed and Iraq’s economy stabilised, but probably with a different mix of capabilities to that which previously existed. Saddam aspired to develop a nuclear capability–in an incremental fashion, irrespective of international pressure and the resulting economic risks–but he intended to focus on ballistic missile and tactical chemical warfare (CW) capabilities.’ ”
