Kuwait foils smuggling of chemicals, bio warheads from Iraq
Kuwait City, October 2
Kuwaiti security authorities have foiled an attempt to smuggle $60 million worth of chemical weapons and biological warheads from Iraq to an unnamed
European country, a Kuwaiti newspaper said on Wednesday.
The pro-Government Al-Siyassah, quoting an unnamed security source, said the suspects had been watched by security since they arrived in Kuwait and
were arrested "in due time." It did not say when or how the smugglers entered Kuwait or when they were arrested.
The paper said the smugglers might have had accomplices inside Kuwait. It said Interior Minister Sheik Nawwaf Al Ahmed Al Sabah would hand over the
smuggled weapons to an FBI agent at a news conference, but did not say when.
Government officials could not be immediately reached for comment.
Iraqi Interior Minister Nouri Al-Badran met on Tuesday with Sheik Nawwaf and discussed cooperation between the two countries in security matters. His
visit is the first by an Iraqi interior minister to Kuwait since 1990.
There is no doubt at all that Hussein had chemical and biological weapons. He used them on the Iranians during their war and on the Kurds. He never
came clean with them, ever. You know it. I know it, and Bob Dole knows. You know there was more reason to believe the sick murderer of innocents
had them and would pass them off than to believe he didn't.
Don't worry, the enemy has been stomped on, networks disrupted, logistical supplies are being destroyed/damaged....you are in a safer world. So feel
secure while bashing those who took action to make it safer.
