Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD)

US inspector admits absence of WMD in Iraq

IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Paris, Feb 16, Itar-Tass/ACSNA/IRNA -- The situation with weapons on 
mass destruction (WMD) in Iraq has undermined confidence in the United
States for a generation to come, David Kay, former head of the group 
of US inspectors in Iraq, has said here in an interview. 
According to David Kay, he was sure Iraq possessed WMD, when he 
came to Iraq in July 2003. Soon he changed his mind, however. All the 
facilities, where, in the opinion of the security services, WMD could 
be produced or stockpiled, had nothing to do with them, he continued. 
Kay came to a final conclusion about the absence of WMD in Iraq 
after the inspectors did not get any piece of evidence from the Iraqi 
scientists and specialists, which might indicate the presence of WMD 
in that country. 
Kay stressed they had been wrong, and now it was time to 
acknowledge their mistakes and to analyze carefully the reasons for 
them, so that the United States could restore its reputation.
