Joseph Shahda has translated another Iraqi intelligence document, which appears to indicate that Iraq procured equipment to detect nerve gas in or about December 2000. This equipment is described as “prohibited” and as “similar to the required quality compared with the Russian equipments,” which are described as having “expired.” It appears that the equipment was tested in December 2000 and was found to detect “nerve agents” successfully. Which certainly seems to confirm that Iraq had some quantity of nerve gas as of early 2001.
