November 1, 1983      US-Iraq 1980s

       US State Department official Jonathan T. Howe tells Secretary of State George P. Shultz that intelligence reports indicate that Saddam Hussein's troops are resorting to “almost daily use of CW [Chemical Weapons]” against their Iranian adversaries. [The Times 12/31/02; Washington Post,12/30/02 Sources: Memo from Jonathan T. Howe to George Shultz regarding Iraq's use of chemical weapons, November 1, 1983]
People and organizations involved: George Shultz, Jonathan T. Howe
          

November 21, 1983      US-Iraq 1980s

       US State Department official Jonathan T. Howe sends Secretary of Defense Lawrence Eagleburger a memo reporting that US intelligence has determined that “Iraq has acquired a CW [chemical weapons] production capability, primarily from Western firms, including possibly a US foreign subsidiary” and that Iraq has used chemical weapons against Iranian forces and Kurdish insurgents. Referring to the US policy “of seeking a halt to CW use wherever it occurs,” Howe says the US is “considering” approaching Iraq directly, but in a way that avoids playing “into Iran's hands by fueling its propaganda against Iraq.” Significantly, the memo acknowledges that the US has so far limited its “efforts against the Iraqi CW program to close monitoring because of our strict neutrality in the Gulf war, the sensitivity of sources, and the low probability of achieving desired results.” [Sources: Memo from Jonathan T. Howe to George Shultz regarding Iraq's use of chemical weapons, November 1, 1983]
People and organizations involved: Lawrence Eagleburger, Jonathan T. Howe
