'Chasing Saddam's Weapons' Panorama is on BBC1 at the moment: I have just written the following: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/programmes/panorama/2737993.stm 'I have two comments on your programme on Iraq being broadcast at the moment. 1. The reporter claims that in the past, weapons inspectors lacked the powers to inspect presidential sites. This is factually wrong: there was a Memorandum of Understanding agreed between Iraq and the UN laying down the procedures for such inspections, and such inspections took place. 2. On spying, the reporter says that the Iraqi propaganda machine has been working overtime calling the inspectors spies. This ignores the fact that the US had indeed run spying activities through the UN weapons inspections process.' ---------------------- Dr. Eric Herring Department of Politics University of Bristol 10 Priory Road Bristol BS8 1TU England, UK Office tel. +44-(0)117-928-8582 Mobile tel. +44-(0)7771-966608 Fax +44-(0)117-973-2133 firstname.lastname@example.org http://www.bris.ac.uk/Depts/Politics http://www.ericherring.com/ Join the Network of Activist Scholars of Politics and International Relations (NASPIR)! http://groups.yahoo.com/group/naspir/ _______________________________________________ Sent via the discussion list of the Campaign Against Sanctions on Iraq.
