EVIDENCE AGAINST USE OF CW IN DESERT STORM Filename:0617rpt.00 EVIDENCE AGAINST USE OF CW IN DESERT STORM 1. [ (b)(1) sec 1.3(a)(4) ] 2. Unanimous statements of [ (b)(1) sec 1.3(a)(4) ]POWs stating no intent. a. fear of massive retaliation b. coalition better prepared to fight in CW environment, thus no advantage for them 3. No CBW munitions found in the KTO to this day a. statement of [ (b)(6) ]. Over 14,000 tons of ordinance (includes 350,000 mines) and NO CW WEAPONS. 4. No casulties reported. Army private only one with similar symptoms but analysis of flak jacket and swab indicate conclusively no CW. 5. No confirmed detections. a. many false alarms but no confirmations b. two step process c. CZ only confirmed instance and we're just taking their word for it [ (b)(1) sec 1.3(a)(4) ] 6. All samples taken before, during, and after the war which were analyzed in KTO and at ERDEC were found negative. Soil, liquid and air samples all negative. 7. Long term low level exposure DEFIES THE LAWS OF PHYSICS a. Law of diffusion. Movement from greater concentration to lesser concentration. If in one area or time the concentration is low, at some other area or time the concentration must be high. Ergo people die, other detections are made etc. b. CZ detection lasted 40 minutes in an area of a few kilometers at best. Confirmation on one day only. c. Only possible explanation for long term low level exposure below detection range is continuous low level release over wide spread area. Facts don't support. 8. Release from bombed targets ruled out by: a. WX data -- wind and rain make it very unlikely b. distance covered c. no IZ casulties.
