From “Back on the horizon,” Frank Gaffney Jr., The Washington Times, Nov. 21, 2000:

[I]t is obvious to Saddam, and virtually everybody else, that the Americans’ will to resist his comeback is now falling apart. Less well appreciated in the West, at least, is how dangerous the latest erosion — to say nothing of the complete collapse of the containment strategy that it portends — may prove to be.

Fortunately, new books fill in the blanks. [One] is titled “Saddam’s Bombmaker.” Its author, Khidhir Hamza, was the Iraqi scientist responsible for these programs until his defection in 1994. Mr. Hamza revealed that Saddam now has a workable design for a small atomic weapon capable of being fitted aboard an extended-range Scud missile. The only thing he has appeared to lack… is a sufficient quantity of bomb-grade uranium.
