Excerpts from September 2002 Defense Intelligence Agency report, released June 6, 2003:

Unusual munitions transfer activity in mid-2002 suggests that Iraq is distributing [chemical weapons] munitions in preparation for an anticipated attack … Although we lack any direct information, Iraq probably possesses CW agent in chemical munitions … Baghdad also probably possesses bulk chemical stockpiles, primarily containing precursors, but that also could consist of some mustard agent or stabilized VX … Iraq is assessed to possess biological agent stockpiles that may be weaponized and ready for use.
