Iraqi strongman had political commisars monitor scientists

Not satisfied with authorizing torture and declaring himself above international agreements his country ratified, the supreme leader of Iraq insisted that his government's scientists must be vetted for political loyalty before participating in international meetings.

Unfortunately, this took place in 2004, at which time the leader of "free" Iraq was George W. Bush.

From the LA Times, via The Washington Monthly:

The Bush administration has ordered that government scientists must be approved by a senior political appointee before they can participate in meetings convened by the World Health Organization, the leading international health and science agency.

Is it possible that Dubya went native when his father was posted to Communist China?
