As Al Qaeda continues to plot and to threaten, the United States has embarked upon a programme to keep Iraq's best scientific brains out of Al Qaeda's leader Osama Bin Laden's clutches. Amid widening fears, that Al Qaeda and its affiliates are striving to acquire weapons of mass destruction, and concern about another major terrorist attack on the United States before the November presidential election, the Americans are finally addressing a problem they ignored for months after invading Iraq: Keeping the scientists who built former Iraqi President Saddam Husseins secret weapons programmes out of the clutches of terrorist organisations and rogue states.
