Ratings: (0)|Views: 2 |Likes:
Depleted Uranium (DU) weaponry has been used against Iraq for the first time in the history of recent wars. The magnitude of the complications and damage related to the use of such radioactive and toxic weapons on the environment and the human population mostly results from the intended concealment, denial and misleading information released by the Pentagon
about the quantities, characteristics and the area’s in Iraq, in which these weapons have been used.

ABOUT THE PROJECT FOR THENEW AMERICAN CENTURY
Established in the spring of 1997, the Project for the New American Century is a non- profit, educational organization whose goal is to promote American global leadership.The Project is an initiative of the New Citizenship Project. William Kristol is chairmanof the Project, and Robert Kagan, Bruce P. Jackson, Mark Gerson and RandyScheunemann serve as directors. Gary Schmitt is executive director of the Project.[The United States must conduct] a foreign policy that boldly and  purposefully promotes American principles abroad; and national leadershipthat accepts the United States' global responsibilities.Of course, the United States must be prudent in how it exercises its power.But we cannot safely avoid the responsibilities of global leadership or thecosts that are associated with its exercise. America has a vital role inmaintaining peace and security in Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. If weshirk our responsibilities, we invite challenges to our fundamental interests.The history of the 20th century should have taught us that it is important toshape circumstances before crises emerge, and to meet threats before they become dire.

April 2005
Our report, “Iraq: Setting the Record Straight,” focuses on the question of SaddamHussein’s WMD programs. It elaborates his failure to comply with UN resolutions for twelve years, beginning with the Gulf War cease-fire agreement in 1991, and ending withUN Resolution 1441 in 2002 and his removal from power in March 2003. The reportalso shows that the case for removing Saddam from power went beyond the existence of weapons stockpiles. President Bush’s decision to act, the report notes, “derived from a perception of Saddam’s intentions and capabilities, both existing and potential, and wasgrounded in the reality of Saddam’s prior behavior.”We suspect some of the report’s material will come as a surprise to a number of readers. This is because much of the reporting on the documents and statements of UNinspection teams and U.S. government officials on Saddam’s weapons programs, and hiscompliance with UN resolutions, has left wide gaps in the public’s understanding of whatthe president faced on March 18, 2003, and what we have learned since. There have also been administration critics who have selectively used material in the historical record toreinforce their case against the president’s policy. With this in mind, our report attemptsto give readers a fuller account of what we knew before the war, and what we know now.
