ABSTRACT
This article reports that after 3 months of searching, David Kay, the top U.S. weapons inspector in Iraq, reported to Congress that his inspection team had not yet found stocks of illicit weapons. The report said an African country had offered uranium to Iraq, but Saddam Hussein apparently did not follow up. Yet Kay's team discovered a vial hidden in a scientist's home containing a biological agent, as well as evidence that in 2001 Hussein paid $10 million in an effort to buy prohibited missile technology from North Korea.
