Former Middle East Envoy Donald "Rumsfeld helped facilitate Iraq's buying spree from American firms [in the late 1980s]. As the Los Angeles Times reported [on February 13, 1991], the U.S. government approved the sale of 'a whopping $1.5 billion worth' of high technology to Iraq between [March] 1985 and 1990. There was ample evidence that the equipment had dual military applications."
