[ Presenting plain-text part of multi-format email ] Thanks, Hassan Zeini, for alerting us to the TIME interview with Richard Butler (August 19) and suggesting we write the magazine. Here's the letter I sent: To the Editor: In your article "He's the Bane of Baghdad" (Aug. 19), former U.N. weapons inspector Richard Butler insists the Iraqis kicked him and his inspection team out of the country in 1998, when in fact they withdrew from Iraq to escape what they knew was coming: Operation Desert Fox, in which the U.S. dropped 600 bombs and fired 390 cruise missiles on Iraq in four days. For me, Butler's disingenuousness casts doubt on the rest of what he says about Iraq's weapons of mass destruction. Sincerely, Suzy T.
