“According to David Kay, a former United Nations weapons inspector, traces of VX [nerve agent] were found on SCUD missiles in Iraq following the Gulf War. He says Iraq may even have helped build the al-Shifa plant in Sudan [one of the Clinton Administration’s retaliatory targets following the East African embassy bombings of August 1998]. ‘Sudan is not a state that you’d normally expect to understand by itself the intricacies of the production of VX,’ Kay said [during an appearance on CNN on August 21, 1998]. ‘I think most people suspect there was Iraqi help in this.’ ”
