ABSTRACT

Weapons of Mass Destruction in the Middle East [January 14, 2000]   [open pdf - 373KB]

From the Abstract: "The primary purpose of this report is to describe the nuclear, biological, and chemical weapons (weapons of mass destruction or WMD) and missile programs of the countries and terrorist groups in the Middle East. An introductory section puts these weapons programs into the context of the region's strategic environment and U.S. national interests. The concluding section discusses briefly the policy options that are available to the U.S. government and to Congress, in particular, to counter the growing threat. The report does not attempt to evaluate the efficacy of current or future policies. As major changes occur in the status of WMD programs, this report will be updated."
