Did You Know Saddam Was Also Bribing UN Officials to Get the Sanctions Lifted?
Hidden amongst all the articles droning on about a lack of stockpiles of WMDs is this AP article. It appears someone actually read the report and it had some other interesting things in it. Most notably - Saddam was attempting to bribe UN officials to lift the sanctions on his country. Knowing how corrupt the oil-for-food program was, it seems he probably had or would have had many takers on these bribes. See if you read this in the NY or LA Times - doubt it.
