ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the uncertainty about Iraq's weapons as of 23, February, 2004. Both, London, England and Washington announced inquiries into why their intelligence on Iraq's weapons appears to have been so flawed. David Kelly, a government scientist and expert on biological and chemical weapons, sparked the row by telling a BBC journalist at a secret meeting that he had doubts about an intelligence dossier on Iraq's weapons published by the Great Britain government in September 2002. Intended for Members of Parliament and the public, the dossier contained an assessment of Iraq's weapons, and was compiled by the Great Britain intelligence services. In a foreword, prime minister Tony Blair argued that Iraq was a current and serious threat to the UK national interest"
