WASHINGTON, Feb. 25— The Pentagon acknowledged today for the first time that the Army blew up a sprawling ammunition depot in southern Iraq in March 1991 even though it had information at the time suggesting that the depot might contain chemical weapons.

The information from the Central Intelligence Agency, the Pentagon said, was never passed on to the battalion of American soldiers who carried out the demolition several days after the Persian Gulf war ended and who may have been exposed to a cloud of nerve gas and other chemical weapons as a result.

In releasing a detailed chronology of the demolition of the Kamisiyah ammunition depot, the Pentagon said that the information had been gathered in late February 1991 by the C.I.A. and passed on to the 18th Airborne Corps, which was then in the vicinity of Kamisiyah. The war ended on Feb. 28.

Not like this was not known in military circles since like forever, well this, and a lot of other nasty stuff our boys were exposed to.

Yes but the veterans admin has denied it officially. This has happened before and usually takes decades to get them to do the right thing. They figure that by that time many of the affected vets will die and then the cost will be cheaper.

Liberals will never admit Bush was right about chemical warfare in Iraq. A friend of mine said they ran across places where it was or had been stored .. They were quickly moved away from the locations .

Anecdotes. As always. Actual evidence? None. Again, as always.

It's becoming a pattern with you, lost.

Wrong war, not there was not plenty of nasty stuff we encountered when we finally headed for Baghdad and beyond. All kinds of stuff, including labs, were found in western Iraq, but no deployable "dirty" bombs or chemical munitions, except for the ones that were buried so long ago that they were leeching into the soil.

Matter of fact, Iraq was knowingly supplied with the means to manufacture chemical munitions by many western European companies, including those in Italy, France, Britain, and Germany.

1991. What does that have to do with Bush's false claims of 2002/2003?

The claim that was made in 2002 and 2003 was that Iraq could deploy biological and chemical weapons within 45 minutes. That was a lie.

Iraq had chemical weapons and probably had small stockpiles of decaying chemical agents, but that was far from a justification for war.

Wmd was just an excuse for a predetermined agenda for war. Millions of people around the world saw that at the time. It's unfortunate that anyone is still shilling for the old administration.

They lied. Just admit it.

So you are a saying Iraq had Chemical weapons (wmd) all along just like Clinton Kerry and most leading Democrats said they did. Cool
