                                    DIRECTOR 531447  
SUBJECT:     BRIEFINGS - 21-FEBRUARY  
1 .        FEBRUARY-15                        WAS  
BRIEFED   0N    UPDATED ON THE MILITARY  
SITUATION IN THE PERSIAN GULF.  A SUMMARY FOLLOWS.  
7. GULF UPDATE  
11. POWS REPORT THAT CHEMICAL ARTILLERY IS BEING FORWARDED  
TO  DIVISION.  THE LIKELIHOOD THAT A GROUND CAMPAIGN WOULD  
INVOLVE  CHEMICAL WEAPONS IS GOOD, BUT WE DO NOT KNOW WHAT  
TYPE OF AGENT WOULD  BE USED.  HOWEVER, THE IRAQIS ARE NOT  
VERY WELL PREPARED TO FIGHT IN A CHEMICAL ENVIRONMENT.  SOME  
OF THEIR EQUIPMENT IS OUT OF DATE, AND THEY ARE NOT VERY  
WELL TRAINED IN CHEMICAL WARFARE.  HOWEVER, THIS WOULD NOT  
PREVENT IRAQ FROM USING CHEMICAL WEAPONS.  
END OF MESSAGE  
                           1.5(c)
