Hans Blix
But in the Middle Ages people were convinced there were witches. They looked for them and they certainly found them.
Blix quotes
There was a very consistent creation of a virtual reality, and eventually it collided with our old-fashioned, ordinary reality.
Blix
I found it peculiar that those who wanted to take military action could with 100 per cent certainty know that the weapons existed and turn out to have zero knowledge of where they were.




Blix Hans quotes
It was to do with information management. The intention was to dramatise it.
Blix Hans
Personally, Mr. Blix is amiable and has a sense of humor; politically he is weak and easily fooled. I can think of few European officials less suitable for a showdown with Saddam. Indeed, it is with utter disbelief that I watch television news about Mr. Blix's negotiations with the Iraqi dictator's henchmen. [...] Regardless of how this crisis develops from this point, the United Nations has neglected its duties by asking a wimp to lead the inspectors who are supposed to stand up to the brute of Baghdad.
Hans Blix quotes
It's true the Iraqis misbehaved and had no credibility but that doesn't necessarily mean that they were in the wrong.
Hans Blix

Blix Hans quotes
I have my detractors in Washington. There are bastards who spread things around, of course, who planted nasty things in the media.
