The UN Inspections in Iraq: Lessons for On-Site Verification

Excerpt

This book is drawn from a study I authored in 1992 for National Security Research, Inc., and Jaycor Corporation, under contract to the US Defense Nuclear Agency.The opinions, findings, and conclusions expressed in this book are mine and do not necessarily reflect the views of the United States Government, the University of California, or any other institution.

My deepest appreciation is extended to the inspectors and experts, working on and for the UN Special Commission, who shared their time and knowledge with me. Without their help, this book would not be.

I would like to gratefully acknowledge the extensive contributions by four people to this study. Mr. David Evans took notes during my interviews with inspectors and experts dealing with Iraq's chemical weapons capabilities and provided input for Chapter 1. Dr.Steve Lambakis served as notetaker in interviews associated with the biological inspections and provided input on Chapter 2. Mr.Bernard Victory took notes during interviews on the ballistic missile inspections and provided input to Chapters 4 and 5. Dr.Robert Rudney conducted research for and provided input to Chapter 5.

Mr. Jonathan Fox of the US Defense Nuclear Agency played a key role in defining the objectives and organization of this study. He and Agency's Center for Verification Research provided guidance and assistance throughout the project.

Additionally, I would like to thank those people who gave me extensive suggestions and corrections: Dr.Graham Pearson, Dr.David Kelly, Mr.Stephen Eley, Dr.David Huxsoll, Mr.Bill Dee, Dr.David Kay, Dr. Dave Dorn, and Dr.George Anzelon.Also, I appreciate the efforts of several UNSCOM inspectors who reviewed and provided comments on selected sections. Any errors or deficiencies of this work are my own.
