We can draw at least three lessons from the attacks on September 11. First, we know that Al Qaeda - Osama bin Laden's organization - is interested in getting weapons of mass destruction. We know this from evidence found in Afghanistan. With money, time and a place to work, groups like Al Qaeda are going to try to build these weapons. Second, we...

The world is smaller - we have learned that people can get things here that do us harm. If you can organize a 19-person group to fly airliners into buildings, you can organize a group capable of smuggling in a nuclear weapon. You can: Bring a bomb in in parts and assemble it in a building; drive it over the border in a van; sail it into a harbor...

I have distributed an article from the New York Times that my organization prepared about one year ago. You can see the weapon capability that the United Nations inspectors believe Iraq is still hiding. It includes: Nerve gas, nerve gas ingredients, and nerve gas munitions. Biological agents, growth media for producing these agents, and munitions...

I am pleased to appear today before these distinguished Committees. I have been asked to discuss U.S. policy on satellite exports to China.

Today, China's exports are the most serious proliferation threat in the world. They have been so for the past decade and a half. Since 1980, China has supplied billions of dollars' worth of nuclear weapon, chemical weapon and missile technology to South Asia, South Africa, South America and the Middle East. It has done so in the teeth of U.S....

There is no doubt that Iran is aggressively trying to develop nuclear weapons and the missiles to deliver them. There is also no doubt that Iran has already built chemical weapons. Iran's progress in all these efforts has depended almost entirely on outside help, and will continue to depend on it in the future. Specific cases A great deal is...

I am pleased to appear today before this distinguished Subcommittee, which has asked me to discuss China's role in the spread of weapons of mass destruction. I have been asked to respond to two questions: First, how effective is our present "engagement" policy toward China; second, is the executive branch implementing the U.S. law concerning...

I would like to begin with the idea of "rogue nations"--now thought to include Iran, Iraq, Libya and North Korea. This is a new term that the Clinton administration has coined to define the proliferation problem, and to restrict it to these four countries. Unfortunately, it ignores a lot of proliferation. China is a very serious proliferation...

In roughly one month, we will pass the third anniversary of Iraq's invasion of Kuwait. If Iraq had not invaded Kuwait, it is very likely that Saddam Hussein would be passing a different milestone about now: he would be assembling his first atomic bomb. Two former U.N. inspectors, David Kay and Jay Davis, have estimated that at the time of the...
