Blix: Iraq Worse Off Now Than With Saddam: "Iraq is worse off now, after the U.S.-led invasion, than it was under Saddam Hussein, Hans Blix told a Danish newspaper Tuesday. 'What's positive is that Saddam and his bloody regime is gone, but when figuring out the score, the negatives weigh more,' the former chief U.N. weapons inspector was quoted as saying in the daily newspaper Jyllands Posten. 'That accounts for the many casualties during the war and the many people who still die because of the terrorism the war has nourished,' he said. 'The war has liberated the Iraqis from Saddam, but the costs have been too great.'"
