According to the Riegle Report, which was delivered to the Senate on February 9, 1994, regarding the health of Gulf War veterans, “In April 1993, weapons inspectors from the United Nations charged with locating all of Iraq’s nuclear, chemical and biological weapons by U.N. Resolution 687, confirmed that in Muthanna, 65 miles northwest of Baghdad, Iraq manufactured a form of mustard gas as well as Sarin and Tabun, both nerve agents. This vast desert complex was the nucleus of Iraq’s chemical weapons program.” [The 15th of the month used for date sorting purposes only.]
