Not necessarily at all. In fact what I can take from this memo is that the Iraqi were trying to create a scenario so IF the UN inspectors find WMD or Precursors to WMD hidden in the western desert, Saddam regime can accuse the Americans of burying it there to frame Iraq.

To: jveritas; stylin19a
To add to what jveritas just said, if you notice who the letter was sent to: " To: All The People Commands."
What this tells me is that an upper class group of the regime was indeed worried about WMD being found in the western desert area. In fact, jveritas has another document that discusses such an area.
Since everything was so compartmentalized, one group not knowing about the other, my guess is that if the inspectors found those buried WMD then this message has been sent out so that ALL departments are on the same page when telling the inspectors and reporters that the Americans put them there.
A bit of pre-programming the general Iraqi response if WMD were found.
Not sure if what I wrote makes sense.
