NEW YORK POST, March 8, 2003
A report declassified by the United Nations yesterday revealed that weapons inspectors had recently found an undeclared Iraqi drone that could threaten troops with a biological attack.
U.S. officials were outraged that U.N. weapons chief Hans Blix did not tell the Security Council about the unpiloted plane, but instead tried to bury the bombshell revelation in his 173-page report, the Times of London reports.
Secretary of State Colin Powell had informed the Security Council last month that Iraq had test-flown a drone.
In another section of the report, U.N. inspectors warn Iraq also has spraying devices that could be used to disperse chemical and biological agents from an airplane, the paper reported.
The report also warns that Iraq has huge stockpiles of anthrax and may be developing long-range missiles that could possess small pox.
