Saddam's bombmaker the terrifiying inside story of the iraqi nuclear and biological weapons by Jeff Stein( )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The Iraqi scientist who designed Baghdad's nuclear bomb tells how he did it in secret with the cynical help of U.S., French, German, and British suppliers and experts, and kept it hidden from U.N. inspectors after the Gulf War. Today, he says, Saddam Hussein is only months away from making a workable bomb and has every intention of using it. Don't tell me about the law. The law is anything I write on a scrap of paper." Saddam Hussein In 1994, after twenty years developing Iraq's atomic weapon, Dr. Khidhir Hamza made a daring escape to warn the CIA of Saddam's nuclear ambitions...only to be ridiculed and turned away! After a harrowing journey across three continents with Iraqi agents on his trail, Hamza finally came in from the cold at the U.S. embassy in Hungary. Now he tells a frightening story that U.S. officials have finally come to believe: that Saddam is still feverishly at work on the bomb and, if pushed to the wall, will use it. Dr. Hamza also presents a startling, unprecedented portrait of Saddam himself his drunken rages, his women, his fear of germs, and his cold-blooded murder of underlings. A former resident of the presidential palace, Hamza is the only defector who has lived to write a firsthand, intimate portrait of the Iraqi inner circle, its spies and hit men, and their brutal chief. Saddam's Bombmaker is also a saga of one man's journey through the circles of hell. Educated at MIT and Florida State University, dedicated to a life of peaceful teaching in America, Dr. Hamza relates how the regime ordered him home, seduced him into a pampered life as an atomic energy official, and forced him to design a bomb. The price of refusal was torture. As the father of the Iraqi bomb, Dr. Hamza designed a device from scratch with the help of World War Twoera blueprints from America's Los Alamos labs, all the while planning an escape. Privately, he and his colleagues believed they could procrastinate long enough to outlive Saddam. But the dictator outmaneuvered them, whipping the scientists into a crash program to build a crude bomb that could be dropped on Israel. Had U.S. and Allied forces not quickly mobilized for Desert Storm, Dr. Hamza relates, Saddam may well have succeeded; except for sufficient uranium, the device was ready. It still is. Dr. Hamza's tale of his escape, his first bungled contact with CIA agents, and his flight abroad will keep readers turning pages toward a climax worthy of a well-crafted spy thriller. Along the way, he reveals: -The West's "don't ask, just sell" attitude toward Iraq's nuclear, chemical, and biological programs as long as it was fighting Iran. -How Iraq tested biological and chemical weapons on human subjects. -How the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) tried to recruit Dr. Hamza to make a bomb. -Baghdad's secret program to break into U.S. and other foreign computer systems. Saddam's Bombmaker is not only a shocking political and scientific exposE -- it is a riveting adventure tale

Forum on Iraq ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Discussion about Iraq, U.S. relations with Iraq, and the potential for war between the U.S. and Iraq. The forum began with the reading of letters from Senator Bob Graham, Senator Bill Nelson, and Representative E. Clay Shaw, offering an outline of what is being done in Washington concerning the possibility of military action in Iraq. The forum continued with a panel of four experts having various opinions on Iraq and the Middle East. Retired Rear Admiral Morris reviewed U.S. options when dealing with Iraq: negotiate, work through the U.N., inflict military action. Khidir Hamza, former Chairman of the Physics Department of Iraq's Atomic Energy Commission and Head of the Nuclear Fuel division, believes that Iraq has nuclear weapon technology and the ability to diffuse it. Hossein Alizadeh, senior fellow in charge of the Campaign of Conscience for the International Fellowship of Reconciliation, told of his childhood in Iran during the Iran-Iraq War. Mr. Alizadeh feels that the United States should use diplomacy rather than war. Walid Phares, Professor of Political Science at Florida Atlantic University, feels that it is a mistake to have a war with Iraq. The forum ended with audience questions
