As the dust settles over Baghdad, a leading expert on Iraq tells the story of the obstacles that stood between the US and the fall of Saddam – and reveals that many of them came from within the US government itself

Laurie Mylroie's previous books on Iraq, the No 1 New York Times bestseller Saddam Hussein and the Crisis in the Gulf (co–authored by Judith Miller) and The War Against America, made the persuasive case that Saddam's regime had a long history of brutality and state sponsorship of terror, including involvement in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. Her work was highly influential in building the case against Saddam that led to the recent war in Iraq. Now Mylroie takes on the story behind the buildup to Operation Iraqi Freedom, in Bush vs. the Beltway.

Стр. 40 - In 1995, after several years of deceit by the Iraqi regime, the head of Iraq's military industries defected. It was then that the regime was forced to admit that it had produced more than 30,000 liters of anthrax and other deadly biological agents. The inspectors, however, concluded that Iraq had likely produced two to four times that amount. This is a massive stockpile of biological weapons that has never been accounted for, and capable of killing millions.
