Butler Sees Evidence that Syria Hid Iraq's WMD

(Australian Broadcasting) - Former chief UN weapons inspector Richard Butler says he's seen evidence that Syria helped hide Iraq's stockpiles of weapons of mass destruction. "I was shown some intelligence information, from overhead imagery and so on, that the Iraqis had moved some containers of stuff across the border into Syria and we had reason to believe that those were containers of chemical weapons and perhaps some other weapons. I don't believe the Iraqis wanted to give them to Syria, but I think they just wanted to get them out of the territory, out of the range of our inspections. Syria was prepared to be the custodian of them."
