ABSTRACT
The U.S. Department of State is launching a fast-track programme to employ former Iraqi weapons scientists in the effort to rebuild the country's shattered infrastructure. Ultimately, the state department may spend about $20 million over the next two years to help restock laboratories and rehire Iraqi researchers who worked on nuclear, chemical and biological agents during former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein's regime. State-department officials say that the programme will approach the scientists as allies, and employ them in rebuilding the country.
