The article offers information on the misjudgments of Western countries on the state of Iraq's weapons, which were revealed by the report compiled by Charles Duelfer, chief U.N. weapons inspector. The report indicates that Iraq had not shown any interest in biowarfare. Iraq had no chemical-weapons-related materials and Iraqi President Saddam Hussein hoped to relaunch a chemical-weapons program after the end of sanctions. Hussein made no moves to reconstitute his nuclear program after 1991.
