IRAQ - SURPRISE, surprise - is not cooperating. The chief U.N. weapons inspector delivered his long-awaited report yesterday, and said that Saddam Hussein's regime was not coming clean on questions of disarmament and in fact does not appear to have accepted the idea that the country should disarm. Does this mean war? The White House is all but saying so - in that more-in-sorrow-than-in-anger sort of tone that the self-righteous like to adopt. But we would argue that it's the wrong question.

There's a scene in "The Remorseful Day," tomorrow night's final episode in the 13-year run of PBS' "Inspector Morse" series, that's one of the most elegantly crafted and perfectly distilled television moments you will ever see. Chief Inspector Morse (John Thaw) and Detective Sgt. Lewis (Kevin Whatley) are sitting outside a quiet pub at sunset - Morse with the usual glass of ale, Lewis with orange juice. The camera is shooting them from the side so the two serve as bookends at the lower left and lower right of the frame.

WASHINGTON - David Kay, who led the U.S. effort to find banned weapons in Iraq, said yesterday after stepping down from his post that he has concluded that Iraq had no stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons at the start of the war last year. In an interview with Reuters, Kay said he thought that Iraq had illicit weapons at the end of the 1991 Persian Gulf war but that the subsequent combination of U.N. inspections and Iraq's own decisions "got rid of them." Asked directly if he was saying that Iraq did not have large stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons in the country, Kay replied, according to a transcript of the taped interview made public by Reuters, "That is correct."

STOCKHOLM, Sweden -- He thought the job might take just six months. He thought -- because, to his logical Swedish mind, this was only logical -- that Iraqi President Saddam Hussein would cooperate immediately with postwar weapons inspectors because Iraq badly needed to resume selling its oil. Rolf Ekeus admits now that he made a miscalculation -- a 66-month miscalculation.Instead of six months, it has so far taken six years, and still counting. Ekeus has left his job as the chief U.N. weapons inspector for Iraq a wiser and more worried man. In an interview in Stockholm, he expressed grave concerns that Iraq will go back to producing weapons of mass destruction while a world community that has lost interest in the Persian Gulf war and its consequences looks the other way.Now about to become Sweden's ambassador to the United States, Ekeus is deeply worried that Iraq is still hiding weapons, particularly biological ones.
