Iraq Agrees to Readmit Inspectors, U.N. Says

‘Iraq unconditionally accepted the return of U.N. weapons inspectors late Monday, U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan said.

“I can confirm to you that I have received a letter from the Iraqi authorities conveying its decision to allow the return of inspectors without conditions to continue their work.” ‘ NY Times The Bush administration rejected Iraq’s move as a “tactic”. but then, as they have already determined to attack Iraq regardless of justification or the world’s opinion, they would dismiss any Iraqi move, would they not?

Bush planned Iraq ‘regime change’ before becoming president

“The blueprint, uncovered by the Sunday Herald, for the creation of a ‘global Pax Americana’ was drawn up for Dick Cheney (now vice- president), Donald Rumsfeld (defence secretary), Paul Wolfowitz (Rumsfeld’s deputy), George W Bush’s younger brother Jeb and Lewis Libby (Cheney’s chief of staff). The document, entitled Rebuilding America’s Defences: Strategies, Forces And Resources For A New Century, was written in September 2000 by the neo-conservative think-tank Project for the New American Century (PNAC).” via disinfo The report is available here as a PDF document, or converted to HTML by Google here.
