A commission led by Senate Banking Committee Chairman Donald Riegle to investigate Gulf War Syndrome delivered its findings to the U.S. Senate on February 9, 1994. “Commonly referred to as the ‘Riegle Report,’ it found that from 1985 to the beginning of the Gulf War in 1990, pathogenic (disease producing) and toxigenic (poisonous) materials were exported to Iraq from the United States, with the approval of Department of Commerce. In the summary of the findings, the committee found that the United States had provided Iraq with:
*biological warfare-related materials;
*chemical warfare agent precursors;
*chemical warfare agent production facility plans and technical drawings;
*chemical warhead filling equipment;
*missile fabrication equipment; and,
*missile-system guidance equipment.”
