DEC 90
COUNTRY: IRAQ
SUBJ:          OBSERVATIONS AT TUWAITHA NUCLEAR FACILITY
4.          BUILDING LOCATED NEAR SOME OF THE
LIVING QUARTERS WHICH HAD THE UNIVERSAL "RADIATION DANGER"
SYMBOL ON THE SIDE OF THE BUILDING. THERE WERE ALSO COOLING
TOWERS LOCATED NEARBY. EACH COOLING TOWER WAS EMITTING A
TRANSLUCENT MIST IN A CONE SHAPE. SOME OF THE WESTERNERS
COMPLAINED ABOUT SORE THROATS AND ATTRIBUTED IT TO "FALLOUT"
FROM THE TOWERS.
THE MEDICAL FACILITY HAD A RED CRESCENT SIGN
ON THE OUTSIDE OF THE BUILDING. BOTH OF THE BUILDINGS, ALONG
WITH THE OTHER RESIDENTIAL BUILDINGS WERE DIRTY AND DUSTY. IN
ADDITION, THE BUSES AND TRUCKS ON THE COMPOUND WERE DIRTY AND
DUSTY AND WERE CONSTANTLY IN NEED OF REPAIR.
THE SPORTS COMPLEX AND MEDICAL FACILITY WERE IN FAIRLY GOOD
CONDITION          TUWAITHA WAS AN IMPORTANT RESEARCH
FACILITY. COMPARED TO OTHER FACILITIES IN IRAQ, TUWAITHA WAS
HIGHLY TECHNICAL, WELL-PLANNED AND PROFESSIONAL.)
NEAR TAMUZ NUMBER ONE, A
SITE THAT HAD BEEN BOMBED AND WAS NO LONGER ACTIVE.
16. MEDICAL FACILITIES AT TUWAITHA WERE ADEQUATE AS
COMPARED TO U.S. STANDARDS OF 10-15 YEARS AGO. THE CLINIC WAS
WELL-EQUIPPED WITH MEDICAL SUPPLIES AND PRESCREPTION DRUGS
ALTHOUGH THE IRAQIS AT THE MEDICAL
FACILITY REFERRED TO THEMSELVES AS DOCTORS, THEY SEEMED TO BE
THE EQUIVALENT OF PARAMEDICS IN THE U.S. THE WESTERNERS USED
THE THREAT OF "WAR CRIMES" TRIALS TO MOTIVATE THE IRAQI DOCTORS
TO PROVIDE PROMPT AND THOROUGH MEDICAL TREATMENT.)
