ABSTRACT

Unresolved Questions Regarding US Government Attribution of a Mobile Biological Production Capacity by Iraq   [open pdf - 59KB]

This document aims to answer a number of questions dealing with findings of mobile biological production plants in Iraq. "Taken together the information provided here suggests two possibilities. First, that the SAIC/Hatfill truck platform was based as much or more on the abstract conceptions of necessary components for such a vehicle, together with the CIA's elaborated illustrations, as it was on Curveball's possible drawings. And that this platform is what is being referred to in the Silberman-Robb report, as well as in DDCI John McLaughlin's comment. Additionally, that in some way it was used by the CIA to validate the information provided for President Bush's State-of-the-Union remarks as well as Secretary Powell's presentation to the United Nations. Alternatively, it suggests that the quoted line in the Silberman-Robb Commission Report refers to a separate and as yet publicly unidentified effort. All of these questions remain questions and they remain unresolved."
