Hans Blix (b. 1928) is a Swedish diplomat and politician, a member of the centre-right Liberal People's Party[1] and an advocate of nuclear power.

Outside Sweden, he is best known for two things - a) as Director General of the IAEA during the Chernobyl disaster, and b) the inspector who was sent to Iraq and utterly failed to find weapons of mass destruction. Many in the US scorned him for this, assuming him to be incompetent. And if Dubya, Cheney and Blair actually listened to him,[2] maybe they'd be able to leave their respective countries without the almost-constant call for being tried as war criminals.[3]

He has since been appointed the head of the United Arab Emirates nuclear program.
