ABSTRACT
This article discusses the plight of weapons inspectors from the United Nations (UN) to investigate the atomic, biological, and chemical weapons programs in Iraq. Iraq is in a curious position. The UN team is conducting aircraft patrolling, while UN bureaucrats, are keen to visit its military installations and question its personnel. One of the only remaining issues of Iraqi sovereignty is the survival of its dictatorial leader Saddam Hussein. Hans Blix, executive chairman of the UN team, kept experienced hands off his team because the Iraqis found them too tough. Iraq had retaliated on British and American planes which were patrolling the no-fly zones. The Iraqi officials answered questions of the UN with protests and falsehoods.
