K. CHEMICALS: SOURCE WAS ASKED WHY THE IRAQI ARMY HAD NOT
EMPLOYED CHEMICALS AGAINST COALITION GROUND FORCES. SOURCE
REPLIED THAT THERE WERE NO CHEMICAL MUNITIONS IN EITHER HIS
BRIGADE OR IN THE 48TH DIVISION. SOURCE WAS CHALLENGED ON THIS
ASSERTION, BUT INSISTED THAT, WHILE VARIOUS MORTAR AND ARTILLERY
DELIVERY SYSTEMS WERE ORGANIC TO THE DIVISION, THE ACTUAL
MUNITIONS WERE NOT ISSUED TO THE DIVISION LEVEL.

1.            ASSESSMENT OF SOURCE AND INFORMATION -- WHILE
MOST OF WHAT SOURCE DESCRIBES HAS THE RING OF TRUTH AND IS
LARGELY CONSISTENT WITH INFORMATION FROM OTHER, LOWER RANKING EPW
SOURCES, THIS INFORMATION IS REPORTED AS RAW, UNEVALUATED
INFORMATION. SOURCE WAS UNCOMFORTABLE AND EVASIVE WHEN
DISCUSSING ANYTHING THAT HE PERCEIVED COULD BE IN ANY WAY
THREATENING TO HIM, TO INCLUDE THE SUBJECTS OF CHEMICAL WEAPONS
AND THEIR USE. WHEN DISCUSSING THE IRAN-IRAQ WAR, FOR EXAMPLE,
SOURCE INITIALLY INSISTED THAT ONLY TEAR GAS HAD BEEN EMPLOYED,
AND ASSURED THE DEBRIEFER THAT THE KINDS OF CHEMICALS THAT THE
PRESS ATTRIBUTED TO THE IRAQI ARMY SIMPLY WERE NOT IN ITS
POSSESSION. IN A SIMILAR VEIN, WHEN ASKED ABOUT THE TREATMENT OF
IRANIAN EPWS BY THE IRAQI ARMY, SOURCE INSISTED THAT HE AND HIS
FELLOW IRAQI SOLDIERS HAD TREATED IRANIAN PRISONERS WITH CARE AND
COMPASSION. [   (b)(1) sec 1.3(a)(4)   ]
