CORRECTION TO THE DCI SPECIAL ADVISOR'S REPORT ON IRAQI WMD Regarding Niro Atomizer Inc.
Annex I to the "Regime Finance and Procurement" section of the Comprehensive Report of the Special Advisor to the DCI on Iraq's WMD, entitled "Suspected WMD-Related Dual-Use Goods and Procurement Transactions," contains an error. The report implies that Iraq procured the spray dryers with precise atomizer nozzles from Danish company Niro Atomizer Inc. in 2001. That is incorrect. In fact, the spray dryers and nozzles were procured in the late 1980s, well before UN sanctions were in place on such equipment. The error in the report occurred in the process of editing and this section should not have been included. The incorrect passage has been removed.
