Chief inspector: No ‘smoking guns’ in Iraq
UNITED NATIONS (AP) — U N. weapons inspectors said Thursday there’s no “smoking gun” to prove Iraq has nuclear, chemical or biological weapons but they demanded that Baghdad provide private access to scientists and fresh evidence to back its claim that it destroyed its weapons of mass destruction.
The Bush administration warned that Saddam Hussein is hiding evidence and will face serious consequences if he doesn’t disarm.
“We know for a fact that there are weapons there,” White House spokesman Ari Fleischer said in Washington.
The teams said they need more time and more intelligence horn U.N. members to help aid them in a search which has already taken inspectors to more than 300 sites in the past two months.
Members of the council left Thursday’s briefing determined to give inspectors the time they needed to get the job done.
Gas prices could spike a dime even if war is averted
WASHINGTON (AP) — Even if war is averted in Iraq, motorists should be ready to pay at least a dime a gallon more for gasoline this spring, the Energy Department says.
Oil and gasoline imports from Venezuela probably won’t return to normal before summer — if then.
Despite tight supplies of crude, the Bush administration gave no sign Thursday it was ready to use emergency oil reserves to soften the supply or price impacts, although U.S. officials were lobbying foreign producers to increase oil output.
“Theres no change in the decisions that have been made,” White House press secretary Ari Fleischer said when asked whether the government’s Strategic Petroleum Reserve might be tapped. He said the purpose of the reserve was to respond to emergencies and implied no such situation exists at this time.
The Energy Department in a report forecast that gasoline prices nationwide would increase to an average of $1.54 a gallon by mid-spring, about IO cents a gallon higher than this week’s average, because of rising crude prices and the disruption to oil exports in Venezuela.
