TAB H - Changes in this Report

We originally published this narrative on February 21, 1997.  Since that time, we intensified our efforts to address the five questions that had remained unanswered in the first publication and to fully understand the effects of the demolition operations on US soldiers.  Hundreds of additional veteran's interviews provided answers to the remaining questions from the first publication.  Research added insight into Iraq's chemical munitions markings and the ambiguous information that existed among US forces on the last day of the war.  We greatly expanded the discussion of the government's response to an increased number of unexplained illnesses among Gulf War veterans and the subsequent discovery of the Khamisiyah demolitions.  The intelligence community provided new details that enabled us to remodel the Pit demolition with greater confidence and publish refined potential hazard areas.  Improved source term data from the CIA, better unit location data, and revised modeling techniques contribute critical improvements to the revised modeling efforts, which we address in this updated narrative. 

We made the following additional changes to the paper:

Version 2.1

We revised the current narrative to correct editorial errors.
