NotesNews: 19 December: Hans Blix, chairman of the UN Monitoring, Verification and Inspection Commission, spoke to the UN Security Council on Iraq's report on its weapons of mass destruction. The commission had received the report of about 10,000 pages. They had hoped that it would clarify a lot of issues that remained open since 1998. It did give information about peaceful programs concerning biology and chemistry, but it did not really shed any new evidence on the chemical weapons and biological weapons program. And this was a disappointment. The U.S. and the UK said that they had evidence that the Iraqis retained weapons of this kind. He said the commission did not have such evidence, but at the same time, they did not have the evidence from Iraq that they had finished it. And hence, their conclusion was that they could not have the confidence that the weapons were gone.
