AID ^SATURDAY. NOVEMBER 2, 1996 WASHINGTON THE SALINA JOURNAL T SAUDI ARABIA BOMBING FBI abandons probe of Saudi bombing Reports: Saudis have detained suspects in explosion at Dhahran By The Associated Press WASHINGTON — The FBI is pulling its few remaining agents out of Saudi Arabia in frustration, because the kingdom has limited their investigation of a bombing at a U.S. military housing complex. Meantime, new reports surfaced that the Saudis have detained dozens of suspects, including some with ties to Iran and one man believed to have driven the explosives-laden truck that destroyed part of the complex in Dhahran on June 25, killing 19 Americans. But officials throughout the U.S. government echoed Defense Secretary William Perry, who told reporters Friday, "We have reached no conclusions about who was responsible for this." He emphasized the investigation is "still being conducted."

"Nobody is hiding anything," said CIA Executive Director Nora Slatkin. In the five years since a U.S.-led coalition drove Iraqi forces out of Kuwait, many U.S. personnel who served in the 1991 conflict have complained of a variety of unexplained illnesses. Until June, the Defense Department maintained there was no evidence that U.S. troops were exposed to chemical or biological weapons. But now the Pentagon says up to 15,000 could have been exposed when U.S. Army troops destroyed an Iraqi ammunition depot at Kamisiyah in southern Iraq. A presidential advisory committee is hearing testimony from veterans who complain of symptoms that include memory problems, fatigue, diarrhea and insomnia. Slatkin said the CIA has given the committee all the material it collected on possible exposure to chemical agents. "On the basis of a review of intelligence, we continue to conclude that Iraq did not use chemical or biological weapons during the Gulf War," Slatkin said.
