From New York Times Editorial, Jan. 27, 2000:

The United Nations Security Council’s compromise choice of Hans Blix as the new chief weapons inspector for Iraq is a disturbing sign that the international community lacks the determination to rebuild an effective inspection system in Iraq… The further the world gets from the Gulf War, the more it seems willing to let [Saddam] Hussein revive his deadly weapons projects… With the Clinton administration unwilling to fight for a stronger nominee… Mr. Blix may be an unavoidable choice. But the problem of Iraq weapons development is not going to go away. The United States and its European allies may later regret that they were not more energetic in enforcing Iraq’s disarmament obligations.
