Iraqi nuclear scientist Khidir Hamza once was a prize witness in congressional committees, helping the Bush admnistration make its case for Iraq's
WMD. He was also regularly interviewed and quoted by the US press. It appears that he was lying all along.
Khidir Hamza was the dissident Iraqi nuclear scientist who played an important role persuading Americans to go to war in Iraq. His credentials
appeared impeccable because he claimed to have headed Saddam's nuclear programme before defecting in 1994.
After the war, Dr Hamza was rewarded, to the distress of many Iraqi scientists, with a well-paid job as the senior advisor to the Ministry of Science
and Technology. Appointed by the Coalition Provisional Authority, he had partial control of Iraq's nuclear and military industries.
It was not a successful appointment, according to sources within the ministry. Dr Hamza seldom turned up for work. He obstructed others from doing
their jobs. On 4 March, his contract was not renewed by the CPA. It is now trying to evict him from his house in the heavily guarded "Green Zone"
where the CPA has its headquarters. He could not be contacted by The Independent but is believed to have taken up a job with a US company.
Its disgusting how deep this lie went. It seems as though everybody involved with intelligence, even if they are seemingly on the outside, are liars
and know how to keep their mouth shut until its too late. Goes to show you just how conspiracy can be kept quiet.
