January 22, 2003      Events Leading to Iraq Invasion

       The United Nations panel in charge of monitoring sanctions against the al-Qaeda network says it has found no evidence of collaboration between al-Qaeda and Iraq. The panel's chairman, Michael Chandler, tells the Agence France Presse (AFP) in an interview, “We don't have anything yet, and no-one has been able to produce anything.” [Agence France Press 1/22/03] Six months later, Mr. Chandler will reaffirm this, telling the Associated Press, “Nothing has come to our notice that would indicate links between Iraq and al-Qaeda.” Abaza Hassan, a committee investigator who will also be interviewed by the news agency, will say, “It had never come to our knowledge before Powell's speech and we never received any information from the United States for us to even follow-up on.” [Associated Press, 6/26/03]
People and organizations involved: Michael Chandler, Abaza Hassanr
