Description - Saddam's Bombmaker by Jeff Stein
A political and scientific expose written by the defector once responsible for Iraq's clandestine weapons programme. He claims that Iraq already has biological weapons and is capable of completing a nuclear weapon within months if international sanctions are lifted. In 1994, after 20 years in Iraq's energy and weapons programme, Hamza escaped to warn the CIA of Saddam's nuclear progress - only to be turned away at first. Western corporations and governments facilitated Iraq's nuclear programme by putting profits ahead of security and averting their eyes as Saddam obtained his necessary nuclear technology. If threatened, he has sworn to create a Doomsday scenario in the Middle East. Current sources within Iraq confirm that the author's information is up to date. As a former resident of the presidential palace, Hamza also paints a picture of Saddam's women, secret bank accounts, his fear of germs, and his torture and execution of close aids.
