Dear list There's been a few significant additions recently to the CASI website, which I thought wise to notify you of. All additions are recorded on http://www.casi.org.uk/whatsnew.html as they happen. These are the documents and links added over the last few days: 1. Details on the status of "oil for food" contracts up to 3 July 2002, with the value of applications, approvals, holds, arrivals and distributions recorded by phase and by sector. By sector: http://www.casi.org.uk/info/undocs/status020703bysector.pdf By phase: http://www.casi.org.uk/info/undocs/status020703byphase.pdf (for those who wish to have the data in computable form, replace .pdf with .xls) The total value of goods that have arrived in Iraq under OFF from its inception in 1996 until the present day (ie over 5 years) remains less than the half Iraq's oil export earnings in a single pre-sanctions peak year, namely 1979 or 1980 (adjusted for inflation). And there is now double the population to provide for. 2. The text of the 19 questions presented by Iraqi Foreign Minister Naji Sabri to the UN Secretary-General on 7 March 2002, as released by the Iraqi News Agency on 10 July 2002. http://www.casi.org.uk/info/sabri020710.html 3. The transcript of an extended interview with former Chief Weapons Inspector Scott Ritter by the Boston Research Group, from 27 April 2000. http://www.casi.org.uk/info/ritter000427.html And links to: "Saddam's Ultimate Solution": an extended interview with Richard Perle, chairman of the Defense Policy Board on the "Wide Angle" PBS documentary (11 July 2002). http://www.pbs.org/wnet/wideangle/shows/saddam/transcript.html The ninth quarterly report of the Executive Chairman of the United Nations Monitoring, Verification and Inspection Commission (Unmovic) of 31 May 2002. http://www.un.org/Depts/unmovic/documents/606.pdf An extensively annotated index of Iraqi opposition groups. http://middleeast.reference.users.btopenworld.com/iraqiopposition.html The new website of the International Atomic Energy Agency's Iraq Action Team. http://www.iaea.org/worldatom/Programmes/ActionTeam/ which includes a factsheet on Iraq's Nuclear Weapons Programme: "There were no indications that there remains in Iraq any physical capability for the production of amounts of weapons-usable nuclear material of any practical significance." http://www.iaea.org/worldatom/Programmes/ActionTeam/nwp2.html I hope some of this comes in useful.
