CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE AGENCY
WARNING: INFORMATION REPORT, NOT FINALLY EVALUATED INTELLIGENCE.
DIST:        JULY 1991
COUNTRY: IRAQ
SUBJ:  1. MILITARY DEVELOPMENTS IN IRAQ;
DOI:          1991
AN
INVENTORY OF CHEMICAL WARHEADS WAS RETAINED BY IRAQ;          
AT THE TIME OF THE GULF CONFLICT, IRAQ HAD NOT YET DEVELOPED A
MISSILE DELIVERY CAPABILITY FOR ITS CHEMICAL WEAPONS. ANOTHER FACTOR
WHICH AFFECTED SADDAM'S DECISION NOT TO USE CHEMICAL WEAPONS IN ANY
FORM DURING THE WAR WAS THE IRAQI MILITARYS INABILITY TO DEFEND
ITSELF AGAINST A CHEMICAL COUNTERATTACK.
