The US knew Iraq was using chemical weapons years before that, and decided to continue giving them military support even after the 1988 gassings. All the info was available, but it didn't matter until the invasion of Kuwait. Just one of life's small coincidences, eh?
If I remember correctly, the US broke relationships with Iraq after those incidents. The United States realized what they were doing.
