Chemical Weapons in Iraq

According to the New York Times, an Iraqi scientist (unnamed for fear of reprisals) is giving the US a large amount of useful information on Iraq's WMD program.

Of interest:

The Americans said the scientist told them that President Saddam Hussein's government had destroyed some stockpiles of deadly agents as early as the mid-1990's, transferred others to Syria, and had recently focused its efforts instead on research and development projects that are virtually impervious to detection by international inspectors, and even American forces on the ground combing through Iraq's giant weapons plants.

This story should be one worth following.
