ABSTRACT
The article presents information relating to United Nation's weapon inspection in Iraq. United Nation must capture, clarify and publicize the record of international inspections in Iraq, for itself, for member governments and for the public. Without a concerted analytical effort, the record of what actually happened and its very real promise for the future, could easily be lost. In the surging controversy over British and U.S. intelligence failures in Iraq, a critical fact is still largely unnoticed, while the national intelligence services were getting it wrong, UN inspectors were getting the picture largely right. But to the best of present knowledge, the inspectors were in fact in the process of finding and beginning to dismantle what was there.
