This CNN piece was brought to my attention at Instapundit, via Chris Kanis (Spoonsexperience), and indicates how reluctant Iraq is to allow UN instpectors to do their job properly and how wishy washy the inspectors are. On an issue this grave, the world needs to know what is taking place.
BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- Three Iraqi scientists -- who Iraq said it had instructed to talk to arms inspectors -- have refused to hold private interviews with the U.N. team searching for weapons of mass destruction, Iraqi officials told CNN.
One of the three Iraqi scientists did undergo U.N. questioning, but in the presence of an Iraqi monitor, officials told CNN on Saturday.
The news came on the day two men -- one carrying three knives, the other a notebook and shouting "Save me!" -- tried to enter the U.N. inspectors' Baghdad compound in separate surprise incidents.
