For the international community, the summer of 1991 was a turning point of scientific discovery, one that set the stage for stronger nuclear safeguards. IAEA and United Nations and inspectors were combing the rubble of Iraq’s nuclear installations looking for evidence of a secret programme to produce atomic bombs, something expressly forbidden by Iraq’s ratification of the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT). What the inspectors found that summer were minute traces of radioactive elements such as uranium and plutonium which helped them to piece together details of the programme, its scale, timetable and likely purpose.
