"On February 24, Newsweek broke what may be the biggest story of the Iraq crisis," FAIR writes. "In a revelation that 'raises questions about whether the WMD [weapons of mass destruction] stockpiles attributed to Iraq still exist,' the magazine's issue dated March 3 reported that the Iraqi weapons chief who defected from the regime in 1995 told U.N. inspectors that Iraq had destroyed its entire stockpile of chemical and biological weapons and banned missiles, as Iraq claims." The CIA denied the Newsweek story. FAIR reports a copy of the complete transcript of Gen. Hussein Kamel's debriefing by International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and the U.N. inspections team known as UNSCOM was obtained by Glen Rangwala, "the Cambridge University analyst who in early February revealed that Tony Blair's 'intelligence dossier' was plagiarized from a student thesis."
