According to Richard Butler, when he headed the United Nations Special Commission responsible for inspecting and disarming Iraq, Saddam Hussein possessed, and had used, weapons of mass destruction. In THE GREATEST THREAT, Butler conveys the fascinating story behind his efforts, and the actions of certain countries and U.N. leaders to undermine them. Robert Whitfield perfectly captures Butler’s conflicting senses of outrage, indignation, and accomplishment. For example, when he reads the sections about Tariq Aziz, the listener feels Butler’s total repulsion toward the man. This title was written before the U.S. attack on Iraq. Although the book seems to have been overtaken by current events, it should endure as an excellent chronicle of events that led up to the war.
