DOI: (U) 900924.

REQS: (U) [    b.2.    ]

SOURCE: [   (b)(1) sec 1.3(a)(4)   ]

SUMMARY: [   (b)(6)   ] PROVIDES SOME INSIGHT INTO IRAQI 
BIOLOGICAL AGENTS AMTHRAX AND BOTULINUM AND THE REACTION TO THEM.

TEXT: 1. [   (b)(1) sec 1.3(a)(4)   ] [   (b)(1) sec 1.3(a)(4)   ] 
WAS PROVIDED INFORMATION ON IRAQ'S BIOLOGICAL AGENTS BY CHEMICAL 
AND BIOLOGICAL  [   (b)(1) sec 1.3(a)(4)   ] WAS TOLD THAT THE 
IRAQIS HAVE A FERMENTOR. BOTH AMTHRAX AND BOTULINUM WERE AVAILABLE 
AGENTS. (([   (b)(1) sec 1.3(a)(4)   ] COMMENT)-SEE [   (b)(1) sec 
1.3(a)(4)   ] [    b.2.    ] OTHER POSSIBLE BIOLOGICAL AGENTS 
MENTIONED WERE CHOLERA AND TYPHUS.) THE VIEWED IRAQI CHEMICAL 
AGENTS AS TACTICALLY EFFECTIVE BUT THE IRAQI BIOLOGICAL AGENTS 
WERE VIEWED AS HAVING ONLY A STRATEGIC EFFECT. MILITARILY, UNITS 
COULD CONTINUE TO FIGHT AND COMPLETE THEIR MISSION DUE TO THE TIME 
IT TOOK FOR BIOLOGICAL AGENTS TO TAKE EFFECT. ON THE OTHER HAND, 
BIOLOGICAL AGENTS CREATE A GREATER PROBLEM WITH THE CIVILIAN 
POPULATION. [   (b)(6)   ] SAID THAT THE MEDICAL PROBLEM IS 
COMPOUNDED BY THE PSYCHOLOGICAL PROBLEM
BIOLOGICAL AGENTS COULD CAUSE IN REAR AREAS. THE
PSYCHOLOGICAL EFFECT ON THE SOLDIER, MOSTLY COMPOSED RESERVES, 
WOULD BE SERIOUS IF THEIR FAMILIES APPEARED TO BE ENDANGERED.

2. MEDICALLY, THE [   (b)(1) sec 1.3(a)(4)   ] IS CONCERNED ABOUT 
THE SPORE PROBLEMS ENCOUNTERED THROUGH BIOLOGICAL AGENTS AND
THE PRESENT INABILITY TO GET RID OF SPORES IN DIRT.
INHALATION IS ANOTHER PROBLEM. THE [   (b)(1) sec 1.3(a)(4)   ] IS 
ALSO CONCERNED WITH EVACUATION FROM CONTAMINATED AREAS. [   (b)(6) 
  ] SAID THAT THE CONTAMINATED AREA WOULD BE QUARANTINED. THE
EXPOSED PEOPLE WOULD BE GIVEN TETRACYCLINE OR TREATED WITH 
PENICILLIN AND ANTIBIOTICS. [   (b)(6)   ] WAS NOT SURE IF THE 
IRAQI AMTHRAX WAS RESISTANT TO PENICILLIN, BUT SAID THAT IF A 
VACCINE WAS AVAILABLE,  [   (b)(1) sec 1.3(a)(4)   ] 

3. [   (b)(6)   ] and [   (b)(1) sec 1.3 (a)(4)   ] BOTULINUM, 
BECAUSE IT COULD BECOME EFFECTIVE IN SEVERAL HOURS, IS A POSSIBLE 
TACTICAL AGENT. ALTHOUGH DIFFICULT AND A REMOTE POSSIBILITY,  
[   (b)(1) sec 1.3(a)(4)   ] FELT THAT IMMUNIZATION OF THE 
POPULATION HAS FEASABLE. A FEW PROBLEMS EXISTED BECAUSE OF THE 
NUMEROUS TYPES OF BOTULINUM. OF THE SIX TO SEVEN TYPES "A" THROUGH 
"G", IMMUNIZATION AGAINST ALL OF THEM COULD NOT BE EFFECTED. [   
(b)(1) sec 1.3 (a)(4)   ]

4. [   (b)(1) sec 1.3 (a)(4)   ] DID NOT KNOW WHICH TYPES OF 
BOTULINUM IRAQ HAS. [   (b)(1) sec 1.3 (a)(4)   ]  THEY HAD TYPES 
A AND B, PROBABLY C, D, AND E, BUT SAID [   (b)(6)   ] HAD NO 
EVIDENCE THAT IRAQ HAD TYPE F, AND THEREFORE COULD ONLY SAY MAYBE. 
[   (b)(6)   ] SAID THAT IRAQ WAS NOT KNOWN TO HAVE 
MICRONCAPSULIZATION (PHONETIC).

COMMENTS: (U) NONE.
