                  BACKGROUND PAPER ON
    BIOLOGICAL WARFARE (BOO) INOCULATION PRIORITY
    
    VACCINATION PRIORITY RATIONALE [(b)(~),sec3~4~ ]_
    
    , U.S. needs to identify inoculation priorities
    based on most likely application of BW agents by Iraq. The
    following discussion recommends inoculation priorities for allied
    forces,
    
    GIVEN: BW agents can be employed either overtly (from an
    aircraft spraying device or by weapon delivery) or covertly
    [(b)(l)sec3.4(b)(2)]

    ASSUMPTIONS: .' Hussein is aware that any U.S. action
    against Iraq will probably be preceded by and include massive air
    strikes. An overt BW attack would not be the optimum means for
    employing BW (gives time to treat forces, allows movement from
    contaminated area, and would provide a causes belly if used
    before outbreak of hostilities).

    .;~
    
    INOCULATION PRIORITY: Fixed by identifying most likely
    targets. Allied air forces are an offensive force concentrated
    at fixed sites employed by few personnel (aircrew).
