From the cover: “The author reveals in this outspoken, finger-pointing, news-breaking book: the UN Secretary General, Kofi Annan, agreed to Hussein’s outrageous demands and then claimed victory; Russia’s foreign minister, Primakov, took secret payoffs from the Iraqis in exchange for his support; the French, eager to do business with the dictator, undercut American efforts to force Hussein to comply; The result is that, despite Iraq’s supposed defeat, Saddam Hussein has very likely resumed building nuclear, chemical and biological weapons, which he is capable of unleashing at any time.”
