Bureaucratic Incentives: Soviet Collapse Provides a Clue to Solving Iraq's WMD Puzzle

An OpEd piece by economist James Buchanan provides an interesting twist on the missing WMDs in Iraq:

“…The WMD programs that Saddam thought to exist may have been, in fact, Potemkin-like displays that were produced solely to satisfy the members of the inner circle, with little or no connection to operational workability.”

Read the piece -- perhaps a bit of a reach, yet, maybe a piece of the puzzle -- in the Richmond Times-Dispatch.
