Eric Margolis reports that it was the United States and Britain who supplied Iraq with Anthrax — in order to give them more weapons in their war against Iran in the eighties. That certainly explains why we weren’t willing to give up on the weapons inspections, we knew for sure that they had the goods and that if they used them, we’d be to blame. His reporting on Abdul Haq leads me to a few questions, though. From what I understood, Haq was not on a CIA-sponsored mission and he wasn’t even on good terms with the CIA. Haq’s problems with the CIA stemmed from the fact that Haq wanted what was best for Afghanistan and the CIA didn’t. (Link from Interesting People.)
