Is Blix working for the UN or the U.S.?
Posted: Monday, January 27, 2003


Blix sounds more and more like he is working for the U.S. with little bouts of differences between them to distract the observer. He is continually telling Iraq that they have to offer more if they want to avoid a war. Is he part of the U.S. threat to Iraq? I thought Bush and his goons were the warmongers and the UN inspectors were to inspect and report to the UN and not fan the flames of war.

The second photo below together with the caption came from the MSNBC website on the 27th January 2003. I observed it while searching for news and felt the photo was telling a bigger story.

However, when I returned to the Website moments later the photo and headline together with the caption were removed. I posted the photo with the updates as we carried it on the front page of this website.

John Negroponte as he speaks with Kuwaiti ambassador Mohammad Abulhassan before delivering his report on Iraqi weapons to the United Nations Security Council January 27, 2003. The United States and Britain condemned Baghdad's attitude to U.N. arms inspectors, but the international community generally said the experts needed more time to complete their search for banned weapons.
