- NYT: CIA, U.S. MILITARY BOUGHT, DESTROYED CHEMICAL WEAPONS DURING IRAQ WAR ”“The Pentagon now says hundreds of other veterans reported on health-screening forms that they believed they too had been exposed during the [Iraq] war,” mentions NYT.”
The effort was run out of the C.I.A. station in Baghdad in collaboration with the Army’s 203rd Military Intelligence Battalion and teams of chemical-defense and explosive ordnance disposal troops, officials and veterans of the units said. Many rockets were in poor condition and some were empty or held a nonlethal liquid, the officials said. But others contained the nerve agent sarin, which analysis showed to be purer than the intelligence community had expected given the age of the stock.
