A U.S. military expert says weapons
inspectors in Iraq have found no evidence that former President Saddam Hussein
tried to transfer chemical or biological weapons technology to terrorists.
Senior fellow at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, Anthony
Cordesman, made the statement in a new report after meeting with top U.S. officials
in Iraq and members of the Central Intelligence Agency who are leading the
search for weapons of mass destruction.
The Washington Post said Sunday that the report claims the loyalist
Fedayeen militia was the only terrorist group that might have received weapons
technology from the Iraqi government.
The report also said U.S. officials in Iraq expect attacks on coalition forces
to continue until American troops leave the country. Officials told him intelligence
will never be good enough to stop all attacks.
Earlier this year, President Bush tried to make the case for war against
Iraq, saying he feared Mr. Hussein's government would give weapons of mass
destruction to terrorist groups like al-Qaida.
