NPR's Ted Clark reports that Iraq has reversed its position and told the U-N it can immediately resume its inspections for weapons of mass destruction, and may include U-S inspectors on its teams. The U-S has remained cautious, taking a wait-and-see attitude as to whether inspectors will in fact be allowed to continue their work unimpeded. The U-S meanwhile termed Saddam Hussein's change of heart a victory, because it refocused world attention on the viability of Iraq's weapons program, seven years after Iraq's defeat in the Gulf War.
