: He added: "The US government is trying to silence Dr. Ammash's outspoken criticism of the US role in causing cancers and other illnesses in Iraq through its own use of biologically hazardous weapons such as radioactive *DEPLETED* uranium."
: *SHE* obtained her B.Sc.... She WAS elected a Fellow of Islamic Academy of Science (IAS) in 2001....Her publications include, "Impact of Gulf War Pollution in the Spread of *INFECTIOUS* Diseases in Iraq"
: She was shown on Iraqi television on March 27th sitting at the same table as Saddam Hussein.
: The arrests of Iraqi scientists and technicians may be an attempt to (a) concoct some *CIRCUMSTANTIAL* evidence of an Iraqi program for developing weapons of mass destruction, (b) mute criticism of *THE* United States' occupation by Iraqi scholars and scientists, and (c) stifle Iraqi's technological and scientific potential for years to come. Since the US has offered no reasons *FOR* Dr. Ammash's detention, one can only speculate about its reasons for her detention.
: However, occupation authorities have an obligation under international law to follow the rules and procedures of *THE* Geneva Convention.
