TO: IMMEDIATE JILE/SAUDI, DIRECTOR
SUBJECT: WNINTEL -- SUSPECTED CHEMICAL STORAGE FACILITY
ACTION REQUIRED: PLS ADVISE IF INFORMATION SHOULD BE SUBMITTED AS INTEL.
1.           RECEIVED A VERY UNUSUAL MESSAGE FROM OUR
AMBASSADOR TODAY. COM RETURNED FROM A MEETING          
           THIS MORNING WITH A HANDDRAWN MAP AND SOME COORDINATES 
OF A LOCATION IN IRAQ THAT IS DESCRIBED AS A CHEMICAL WEAPONS 
STORAGE FACILITY.
INDICATED THAT THEY HAD OBTAINED IT FROM SOMEONE IN THE IRANIAN 
AIR FORCE OR AIR FORCE-RELATED INDUSTRY (IT WAS UNCLEAR TO 
COM). ALTHOUGH THE CHAIN OF ACQUISITION SEEMS TENUOUS, ON THE 
OFF CHANCE THAT IT IS USEFUL, 
WE ARE FORWARDING IT.
2. WE PLOTTED THE COORDINATES AND MATCHED THE DRAWING ON 
JOG (AIR) SERIES 1501, SHEET NH 38-7, EDITION 5. THE 
COORDINATES ARE (3047N-4622E). ON THIS MAP, THOSE COORDINATES 
MATCH UP TO A STORAGE AREA EAST OF JUWARIN, IRAQ. ACCORDING TO 
           INFORMATION THIS IS A CHEMICAL WEAPONS STORAGE AREA.
PLS ADVISE.
END OF MESSAGE
