Also interesting is this odd statement:
"...the local material from the list sent according to our letter 215 on 9/11 were brought back so please replace with the attached list."
Could "brought back" also be interpretted as "rejected", as in rejected by UN inspectors? Multiple attempts to slip one by the inspectors?
I think by the time the letter was written "September 2002" the UN inspectors were not yet in Iraq, they arrived to Iraq on Novemeber 2002 under the new name UNMOVIC. The original UN inspector teams (UNSCOM) were kicked out of Iraq in December 1998, so Saddam regime had almost 4 years to work on their WMD programs, particularly the easiest of all, the Chemical Weapons.
One doesn't need to 'slip one by' those in collusion with them - the only thing the inspectors did with great care, it would seem, is look the other way.
