When you don't care enough to fake the very best

Apparently there is an issue with the Iraqi inspections where Iraq claims to have destroyed known chemical weapons but lost the paperwork
. This is truly
bizarre. Given that the weapons were found after the Gulf War, that Iraq has admitted that they existed, why not just fake the records of their destruction? Is Saddam so confident that the UN and its inspectors are on his side that he sees no need to even bother falsifying records? I'm stunned that Saddam didn't pursue this option as his primary technique. Why not just whomp up a whole pile of detailed documents about how the known weapons were destroyed? Kofi Annan, Hans Blix and the UN Security Council would have believed every letter.
