Soon to retire UN chief weapons inspector Hans Blix departed from diplomatic language this Wednesday morning during a frank interview with a British newspaper:

Speaking exclusively to the Guardian from his 31st floor office at the UN in New York, Mr Blix said: "I have my detractors in Washington. There are bastards who spread things around, of course, who planted nasty things in the media. Not that I cared very much..."By and large my relations with the US were good," he said. "But towards the end the [Bush] administration leaned on us...there are people in this administration who say they don't care if the UN sinks under the East river, and other crude things".
