A report from U.N. weapons inspectors to be released today says they now believe there were no weapons of mass destruction of any significance in Iraq after 1994, according to two U.N. diplomats who have seen the document.
Note has been made...of the testimony of David Kay, the former head of the Iraq Survey Group, before the United States Senate Armed Services Committee on 28 January 2004. At that hearing, among a number of other points, Mr. Kay mentioned that "the efforts that had been directed to this point [of time] have been sufficiently intense that it is unlikely that there were large stockpiles of deployed militarized chemical and biological weapons there [in Iraq]".
No evidence of either current or recent development or production of proscribed munitions was uncovered.
