(Studio: Christiane Amanpour) Taped interview held with former British foreign secretary Robin Cook, who resigned in protest against the war in Iraq. [From London, COOK - notes President Saddam Hussein's weapons of mass destruction still have not been found; states there needs to be an international consensus before changing an inadequate government; comments on intelligence & the WMD issue; notes how hard it is to hide weapons of mass destruction & asks why Saddam did not use the weapons capacity if he had it; notes Iraq has a long history of resenting any foreign occupation, so the urgent task is to provide U.N. authority on the ground to set up a representative government; comments on considering any military action against Iran; fears the rhetoric about Iran will drive it back into its shell.]

Amanpour, Christiane
