The Gulf War


Is there a cover-up? That is the question that some critics of the government's investigation into Gulf War Syndrome are raising. They charge that the Defense Department and the Central Intelligence Agency have improperly hidden from the public information in their Gulf War files or, in some other way, have failed to disclose fully and accurately what they know about Gulf War Syndrome.
To get at these allegations, FRONTLINE submitted ten questions to the Pentagon and five to the CIA. They responded differently. The Pentagon offered its answers to all 10 questions. The CIA declined to answer the five questions directly but, instead, provided three public statements about its knowledge and activity concerning Gulf War Syndrome.

FRONTLINE is making the Pentagon's answers available in full. And it has culled the three documents provided by the CIA for answers to FRONTLINE's five questions. A summary of information relating to the questions is also available.
