Anyone who ever did any actual fighting in Iraq has known about the chemical weapons for years now. There have even been obscure press releases about it when it happened that have long since disappeared.
I don’t understand why though? Why keep something like this a secret when it was supposed to be such a big part of the invasion in the first place? Did they need more studies on the exposure effects?
A lot of people I deployed with are already having physical health issues from being over there, even though they were fine when we got home. Hell, two of my buddies have had heart attacks and both were barely 30.
