: This author's wrong on one point: Russian gov't isn't embarrassed by the awful effects of the gas. They are being secretive b/c the gas is a weapon the US does not have... yet.
xxx I'm not saying that the US gov't doesn't have weaponized aerosolized compounds... those have been used by the US in combat at least since the Gulf War (that weapons testing ground for aerosolized LSD, etc.). It's just *this* particular aerosolized compound that the US gov't either doesn't have or is curious to know more about. That's why there's all this pressure for the Russian gov't to open up... the US gov't doesn't really care what happens to those people who were gassed.
