This does not sound like fun:
Kay recalls one no-notice inspection when the Iraqis barred his team from the premises, but allowed them to observe the facility from a nearby water tower. When inspectors saw the Iraqis moving equipment out the back, Kay sent a team to photograph the area. But as the tape started to roll, the Iraqis fired warning shots over their heads.
Then there was the personal harassment: Middle of the night phone calls with veiled threats to their families, 3 a.m. firing squads executing “black marketeers” near their hotel, and physical attacks by Iraqi “civilians” were only some of their intimidation tactics.
