SUBJECT:         -OPERATION DESERT STORM BRIEFING
10. NON-CONVENTIONAL WARFARE                 THERE IS NO
INTELLIGENCE TO SUGGEST THAT IRAQ HAS CONCLUSIVELY DECIDED TO USE NON
CONVENTIONAL WEAPONS. WE BELIEVE IRAQ IS LIKE TO USE UNCONVENTIONAL
WEAPONS PERHAPS AT THE START OF THE GROUND BATTLE, OR IF FRUSTRATED
 AT THEIR INABILITY TO DRAW ISRAEL INTO THE WAR.
11. OIL SPILL. WE ESTIMATED 10 MILLION BARRELS OF OIL ARE IN
THE SPILL, AND WILL REACH THE MAIN SAUDI DESALINIZATION FACILITY
SOMETIME LATER THIS WEEK. FLOATING BOOMS SHOULD PROTECT THE DAMAGE
TO A SUBSTANTIAL DEGREE,
WE ARE NOT CERTAIN THAT THE BOMBING OF THE MANIFOLDS HAS
TOTALLY DESTROYED IRAQS ABILITY TO USE THAT ROUTE TO DUMP OIL INTO
THE GULF.
