A New York Times article on September 8, 2002, “quote[s] Ahmed al-Shemri (a pseudonym), who contends that he worked in Iraq’s chemical weapons program before defecting in 2000. ‘ *All of Iraq is one large storage facility,* said Mr. Shemri, who claimed to have worked for many years at the Muthanna State Enterprise, once Iraq’s chemical weapons plant.’ The authors quote Shemri as stating that Iraq is stockpiling, ‘12,500 gallons of anthrax, 2,500 gallons of gas gangrene, 1,250 gallons of aflotoxin, and 2,000 gallons of botulinum throughout the country.’ ”
