BBC World Service has broadcast an interesting piece as part of their standard news output. I can't find a written piece on the internet. After capture, Saddam was questionned by Arab speaking FBI agents and revealed a number of very interesting details reagrding his policies, strategies and movements over the years. He confirms that Iraq had destroyed all its WMD as determined by the UN by 1998. Nevertheless, he says it was a deliberate ploy afterwards to prevent further inspections because he feared Iran more than the US. The main aim being to deny Iran the knowledge of how weak Iraq really was. If the world thought he might have something, then Iran was unlikely to capitalise on that weakness. In effect, and he recognises it turned out to be a miscalculation post-9/11, he decided winding up the US but not giving them what they wanted was less worrysome than giving Iran an advantage. He also announced that the US efforts in 2003 would only serve to strengthen Iran's position in the region.
