Iraq's policy of deception
Iraq has admitted to UNSCOM to having a large, effective, system for hiding
proscribed material including documentation, components, production
equipment and possibly biological and chemical agents and weapons from
the UN.  Shortly after the adoption of UNSCR 687 in April 1991, an
Administrative Security Committee (ASC) was formed with responsibility
for advising Saddam on the information which could be released to
UNSCOM and the IAEA.  The Committee consisted of senior Military
Industrial Commission (MIC) scientists from all of Iraq's weapons of mass
destruction programmes.  The Higher Security Committee (HSC) of the
Presidential Office was in overall command of deception operations.  The
system was directed from the very highest political levels within the
Presidential Office and involved, if not Saddam himself, his youngest son,
Qusai.  The system for hiding proscribed material relies on high mobility and
good command and control.  It uses lorries to move items at short notice and
most hide sites appear to be located close to good road links and
telecommunications.  The Baghdad area was particularly favoured.  In
addition to active measures to hide material from the UN, Iraq has attempted
to monitor, delay and collect intelligence on UN operations to aid its overall
deception plan.
