Dr Khidir Hamza formerly worked on Iraq's nuclear program before defecting in 1994. In an interview with the Times Of London Hamza is claiming that Saddam is using German centrifuges to purify uranium to weapons grade:
IRAQ could produce nuclear weapons within months using pirated German equipment and uranium smuggled from Brazil, according to a dissident Iraqi nuclear scientist.
Hamza also thinks the centrifuges are too well hidden in outwardly innocuous buildings to be able to be found by UN weapons inspectors.
