Halabja Chemical Weapons Attack.

Where did the chemical weapons come from that were used to attack and kill thousands of Kurdish nationals? I remember this was a great sticking point, that Saddam had weapons of mass destruction. That he he would use WMDs on us because he had used them on others. That he would distribute WMDs to terrorist groups.

 

Ted Koppel, hosting Nightline on ABC reported on June 9th, 1992: “It is becoming increasingly clear that George Bush, operating largely behind the scenes throughout the 1980s, initiated and supported much of the financing, intelligence, and military help that built Saddam’s Iraq into the power it became”…. “Reagan/Bush administrations permitted—and frequently encouraged—the flow of money, agricultural credits, dual-use technology, chemicals, and weapons to Iraq.”

 

Apparently it was Ronald Reagan who removed Saddam’s Iraq from the list of state sponsored terrorism supporters. Alcolac International and Phillips (once associated with Conoco) provided thiodiglycol to Saddam. This is a precursor chemical to the mustard gas used on the Kurds. Both corporations have undergone name changes.
