Who gassed the Kurds?

One of the most popular arguments in favor of annihilating Iraq is that Saddam Hussein is a monster who used chemical weapons on his own civilians. One problem with this logic is that, although such action is indefensible, it doesn’t make much sense to rush into a war that will result in the deaths of more of these civilians that we are allegedly avenging. Another problem with it, which I just recently learned, is that it might not really be true. A New York Times op/ed from someone in a position to know indicates that this popular “fact” is really speculation at best.
