UN Weapons Inspections: Day 70: Chemical warhead #17 was discovered by Blix and company today. Meanwhile, Hans is telling Iraq that the time on the countdown clock is “5 minutes to midnight”. He’s still pleading with Iraq to provide evidence of its weapons programs.

According to the UN resolution, the responsibility is on Iraq to produce the evidence, not the inspectors to hunt it down. Listen to what Blix is saying; he’s asking Hussein to demonstrate his cooperation by providing the evidence. The assumption is that it’s quite well-known in the intelligence community that Iraq does have weapons programs, and thus lack of evidence does not mean absence of programs. It means absence of cooperation. That’s a key point to consider.
