The CDC and a biological sample company, the American Type Culture Collection, sent strains of all the germs Iraq used to make weapons, including anthrax, the bacteria that make botulinum toxin and the germs that cause gas gangrene, the records show. Iraq also got samples of other deadly pathogens, including the West Nile virus.

The transfers came in the 1980s, when the United States supported Iraq in its war against Iran. They were detailed in a 1994 Senate Banking Committee report and a 1995 follow-up letter from the CDC to the Senate.

The exports were legal at the time and approved under a program administered by the Commerce Department.

''I don't think it would be accurate to say the United States government deliberately provided seed stocks to the Iraqis' biological weapons programs,'' said Jonathan Tucker, a former U.N. biological weapons inspector.

''But they did deliver samples that Iraq said had a legitimate public health purpose, which I think was naive to believe, even at the time.''

Let's not forget who gave Iraqi the toxins. Of course we knew what we were looking for because we delivered them. How can we blame Saddam for using something we gave him. Perhaps we agreed with him that some of his people may have been undesirable. After all we did give smallpox to the American Indians n'est pa?

Just google what 'toxins US gave to Iraq' to be enlightened.

First of all yes the US and others sent "samples" of many bio-agents to many countries for research. However, weaponizing and using them is all Saddam. And Yes I blame him for murdering thousands of Kurds.

Let us not forget the USSR directly using "yellow rain" on Afganistan.

"We" that gave smallpox to the Indians is a little flawed. Smallpox is a very contagious disease. It swept the planet. If you are refering to the old "smallpox blanket myth" it is a myth, a lie by a now defunked nutcase lair called Ward Churchill.
