LONDON (AP) — AnIraqi man whose testimony theUnited States used as a keyevidence to build a case forwar in Iraq says he is proudthat he lied about his countrydeveloping mobile biologicalwarfare labs.The Guardian newspa-per published an interviewWednesday with Rafid AhmedAlwan al-Janabi, who has beenidentified as the informer called“Curveball,” whose claimsabout weapon labs formed partof then-U.S. Secretary of StateColin Powell’s speech to theU.N. Security Council in 2003,shortly before the war began.The Guardian quoted al-Janabi as saying: “I had thechance to fabricate somethingto topple the regime. I and mysons are proud of that.”Although some intelli-gence agents were skepticalof Curveball’s story, the U.S.Senate Intelligence Committeereported in 2004 that theCentral Intelligence Agency“withheld important informa-tion about Curveball’s reliabil-ity” from analysts dealing withthe case.The Guardian interviewedal-Janabi in Karlsruhe,Germany, in a mixture of Arabic and German. The U.S.Senate panel’s report saidCurveball spoke in English andArabic when he was interro-gated by intelligence officers.Asked about his feeling’sabout the deaths and destruc-tion during the war and in theyears following, The Guardiansaid al-Janabi said there was noother way.“I tell you something whenI hear anybody not just in Iraqbut in any war (is) killed, I amvery sad. But give me anoth-er solution. Can you give meanother solution?” the newspa-per quoted him as saying.“Saddam did not (allow)freedom in our land,” theIraqi said. “There are no otherpolitical parties. You have tobelieve what Saddam says, anddo what Saddam wants. And Idon’t accept that. I have to dosomething for my country. SoI did this and I am satisfied,because there is no dictator inIraq any more.”

A ranch owner in FortKeogh, Mont., discovered thelargest reported snowflake inJanuary of 1887. It measured15 inches wide and eightinches thick.FORT LAUDERDALE,Fla. (AP) — A state workermade the alarming discov-ery: a 10-year-old boy in thefront seat of an exterminator’sred pickup alongside a busyinterstate, convulsing fromseizures, dripping in chemi-cals so toxic they sickenedrescue workers. Nearby, theboy’s father lay on the ground,unresponsive and doused ingasoline in what he later toldpolice was a futile attempt tokill himself.The most horrifying findwould come hours laterbecause the truck was tootoxic to search — the dete-riorating body of the boy’stwin sister, wrapped in plasticbags, wedged between chemi-cal containers in the enclosedpickup bed.The boy was in criti-cal condition Wednesday,his burns, mostly below thewaist, getting worse and doc-tors unsure of what chemicalwas used. His father, JorgeBarahona, was also in thehospital. He faces aggravatedchild abuse charges, but morewere expected.Meanwhile, an angry judgegrilled state child welfare offi-cials over missed opportunitiesto help the twins, Victor andNubia, after an anonymousabuse allegation was calledinto a hotline Feb. 10 — fourdays before the children werefound by the highway assis-tance worker along Interstate95 in West Palm Beach.The caller said the twins’feet and hands were boundwith duct tape and they werekept in a bathtub as punish-ment. Child welfare officialsalso believe the girl was beingstarved.The state officials describeda disturbing picture of a Jorgeand Carmen Barahona, whoadopted the twins, an 11-year-old autistic boy and a 7-year-old girl from foster care. Thecouple has been the focus of at least three abuse allegationsin the past several years, butnothing ever came of them.
