Abstract

This thesis addresses United States foreign policy toward Iraq, focusing on U.S. policy toward the Iraqi Kurds in the latter half of the 20th century. Specifically, it examines how U.S. policy has responded to Iraqi Kurdish separatism from the post World War II period until the present. By examining U.S. foreign policy towards Iraqi Kurds, it is possible to trace the evolution of U.S. policy’s response to Iraqi Kurdish separatism from the post World War II period until the present, especially the revolution which U.S. policy toward the Iraqi Kurds underwent in the 1990s. The sources used in this thesis consist specifically of U.S. Department of State documents, U.S. Central Intelligence Agency documents, U.S. Congressional documents, committee hearings, and staff reports, White House documents, as well as various other sources
