Weapons Inspection Agreement

— Host Bob Edwards talks to former U.N. weapons inspector Raymond Zalinskas about the new procedures in Secretary-General Kofi Annan's agreement with the Iraqi government for inspecting possible weapons sites. Zalinskas says the new requirements can only make it harder for U.N. inspectors to find biological or chemical weapons. He also takes issue with Secretary- General Annan's suggestion that U.N. personnel in Iraq need to be `more sensitive' in carrying out their duties.
