Secret Shipments from Baghdad to Damascus - Uri Dan (Jerusalem Post)

Though the inevitable American victory in Baghdad has delivered a fatal blow to international terrorism, this is not the end of the campaign.

At the end of 2002, Israeli military intelligence discovered that major figures in the regimes of Iraq and Damascus were involved in secret shipments of unidentified materials from Baghdad to Damascus, the aim being to hide them in Syria.

Since Hans Blix and his inspection team were then seeking weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, the Israelis and the Americans justifiably suspected that these were shipments of chemical and biological weapons.
