From the Guardian:
Mr Blix, who is leaving his post in June, has said he is willing to field inspection teams if the security council agrees, on the condition that they are independent from the military.
Most members of the council, including Britain, say any weapons of mass destruction found now by the US military must be verified by the UN inspectors before sanctions can be lifted.
But the US is urging the council to approve immediately the lifting of the 13-year-old UN sanctions, so that Iraqi oil revenues can be used to finance postwar reconstruction.
"Finance postwar reconstruction" indeed. So, how many removes is Bechtel from the administration? More than one (unlike Halliburton) one assumes.
