This is to clarify a statement made at the Sept. 24, regularly scheduled Pentagon Press Briefing. The computer model software developed that will establish the footprint of where the plume would likely to have traveled for the March 10, 1991 destruction of the area known as the Pit at Khamisiyah, is in its final stages of completion at the CIA. The model has not been passed to DoD. Once completed, DoD will apply the information to its computer models to ascertain which units would likely to have been in the area at the time of the demolition.
