786. 7/10/1995

On July 10, 1995, Iraqi Deputy Prime Minister Tariq “Aziz presented ten points describing that Iraq did, after all, have an offensive biological-weapons program. Aziz suggested that Iraq had chosen not to reveal its existence before because it had all been eliminated and Baghdad was concerned that Washington would find this an excuse to attack Iraq again. Aziz stated that Iraq had produced botulinum toxin and anthrax at a facility called al Hakam. Large quantities of concentrated agent had been produced, but had never been put in weapons. Aziz also declared that all the agents had been destroyed in October 1990, before the war against Kuwait.”
