After facing criticism for its early failures to find any conclusive evidence of weapons, the administration has turned to Kay, a former U.N. weapons inspector, to take control of the process and launch a more sophisticated and thorough search. And Kay is clearly wary of losing credibility by publicly discussing evidence before he is certain of its authenticity.

"We do not intend to expose this evidence until we have full confidence that it is solid proof," he said.

Despite his caution, however, Kay did say that tantalizing finds might be just around the corner. "The American people should not be surprised by surprises," he said. "We are determined to take this apart and every day, I must say, we're surprised by new advances that we're making."
