Training documents THAT I HAVE SEEN showed how to deploy chemical weapons.
What language were those in?
Arabic. But the pictures didn't need translation.

One thing not being brought out if I may. IMHO, many of these units could have been training so that when the time came to quickly move wmd components as suggested here, to bury in remote desert areas, dump in creeks and rivers, dump in remote desert wasteland areas, load on trucks, etc., special teams would perhaps have been required (sounds stupid but may Saddam and goons did not want to have their soldiers poisioned as they dumped stuff and may have had accidents), keep abreast as how to handle these chemicals.
We know at a few military sites, in bunkers where munitions where stored, that our guys found gas masks, syringes, and vials of atropine, as well as some detection kits for some of the named items.
But the bottom line is Iraq was supposed to not only destroy it's entire store of bio/chemicals but provide sufficient proof to the inspectors as how they managed these projects.
In that we now know they where not only lacking but deliberatly set out to deceive the inspectures at every opportunity.
