[casi] Corporations That Supplied Iraq

The Corporations That Supplied Iraq's Weapons Program

>>> Even before Iraq released its weapons-program dossier on 7 December 2002,

it was said that the report would name the corporations that supplied Iraq

with the equipment and other material it needed to develop biological,

chemical, and nuclear weapons. Soon after the report was released, those

suspicions were confirmed. Sources who had seen the report said that it

identified suppliers from the US, UK, Germany, France, China, and elsewhere.

Now, that part of the report has been leaked. The leftist German daily

newspaper Die Tageszeitung received portions of the original, uncensored

12,000-page dossier. (The names of the corporations have been blacked out of

the version of the report given to the ten non-permanent members of the

Security Council.) The paper has printed the list, presented below.
