SUBJECT: POSSIBLE BIOLOGICAL AGENTS (U)

MSGI~INTREP//

           A SUSPECT POSITIVE ANTHRAX AIR SAMPLE WAS IDENTIFIED AT
LOG BASE A (VIC P55310�PR7857). BOTH FIELD AND LAB TESTS WERE
PERFORMED BY THE BIOMEDICAL SAMPLING TEAM AS OF 23Z200L FE8 91.
LARGE NUMBER OF DEAD SHEEP WERE ALSO NOTED IN THE AREA (NFI).
SUBSEQUENT SAMPLING EAST OF LOG BASE A WAS DONE AND RESULTS WERE
NEGATIVE. A SAMPLE HAS BEEN SENT 8ACK TO THE US FOR FURTHER ANALYSIS
AND WILL REQUIRE LQBORATORY ANALYSIS FOR 24 HOURS. IT IS BELIEVED
THAT IF THE SAMPLE IS POSITIVE THAT IT IS A NATURAL OCCURRANCE AND
NOT THE RESULT OF IRAQI BIOLOGICAL OPERATIONS.
