    In 1991, Iraqi forces intentionally leaked 380-520 million gallons of oil, covering 4000 square miles in four inches of oil as a defensive tactic hoping to keep American planes from landing.

    This is somewhat debatable.  The Lakeview Oil Gusher produced approximately 378,000,000 million gallons of oil and some consider it to be the largest oil spill in history because it was measured a bit more precisely.
