[casi] Blix and ElBaradei reports



The two new briefings from today are at:

Blix-
http://www.un.org/Depts/unmovic/blix14Febasdel.htm

ElBaradei-
http://www.iaea.org/worldatom/Press/Statements/2003/ebsp2003n005.shtml

There's much in there that contradicts the Powell - Bush - Blair line, for
example about the nuclear papers in the scientist's house:

ElBaradei: "While the documents have provided some additional details about
Iraq's laser enrichment development efforts, they refer to activities or
sites already known to the IAEA and appear to be the personal files of the
scientist in whose home they were found. Nothing contained in the documents
alters the conclusions previously drawn by the IAEA concerning the extent
of Iraq's laser enrichment programme." cf Powell on 5 Feb:

"Thanks to intelligence they were provided, the inspectors recently found
dramatic confirmation of these reports. When they searched the homes of an
Iraqi nuclear scientist, they uncovered roughly 2,000 pages of documents.
You see them here being brought out of the home and placed in UN hands.
Some of the material is classified and related to Iraq's nuclear program."

More coming soon.

Glen.
