    CIA helped Saddam to deploy nerve gas in the 1980s

    Newly released documents and interviews with former US servicemen show that the US knew as early as 1984 that Saddam was using nerve agents to attack his enemies.

    The Americans covered up this knowledge and helped Iraq to deploy these weapons precisely by supplying satellite intelligence

    CIA 'helped Saddam Hussein carry out chemical weapons attack on Iran' in 1988 under Ronald Reagan | Mail Online

    Pretty sure this has been known for a fairly long time. After all he was their proxy against Iran and could do what he liked.

    The Title: CIA helped Saddam to deploy nerve gas in the 1980s

    The OP: The US knew as early as 1984 that Saddam was using nerve agents

    Misleading tower of prejudice and paranoia.

    Kind of reminds me of Chris Rock making the remark....'we know that Saddam has weapons of mass destruction...we hold the invoices'.

    And they've done it again in Syria, no doubt.

    The CIA and Al qaeda are indistinguishable at this stage.

    Herbicide with dangerous side effects, hardly nerve gas. It was used by many manufacturers in gardening products. I remember a problem with workers in British Rail, refused to use their products to clear rail lines, because it contained Agent Orange.Hundreds of rail travellers didn't get killed.
