An Interview with Denis Halliday - Former Assistant Secretary General of The United Nations

Question: What was the motive behind blocking the one item out of ten?

Halliday: Because Washington, and to a lesser extent London, have deliberately played games through the Sanctions Committee with this programme for years Ė itís a deliberate ploy. For the British Government to say that the quantities involved for vaccinating kids are going to produce weapons of mass destruction, this is just nonsense. Thatís why Iíve been using the word Ďgenocideí, because this is a deliberate policy to destroy the people of Iraq. Iím afraid I have no other view at this late stage.
