Sodium cyanide is a common reagent in organic synthesis. I used to produce HCN for reactions in the lab -- it has a funny sweet taste in the back of the throat. I heard of HCN related manufacturing processes back in the thirties causing the workers to turn blue somewhat permanently. This list of compounds is not, in itself, suspicious.
Are you telling me that Hydrogen Cyanide or Zyklon B used by the NAZI in concentration camps is not a deadly chemical agent?!
This excerpt from Colin Powells speech makes it sound suspicious.
"After we swept al-Qaida from Afghanistan, some of those members accepted this safe haven. They remain there today."
"Zakawi's activities are not confined to this small corner of northeast Iraq. He traveled to Baghdad in May of 2002 for medical treatment, staying in the capital of Iraq for two months while he recuperated to fight another day."
"During his stay, nearly two dozen extremists converged on Baghdad and established a base of operations there. These al-Qaida affiliates based in Baghdad now coordinate the movement of people, money and supplies into and throughout Iraq for his network, and they have now been operating freely in the capital for more than eight months."
"Iraqi officials deny accusations of ties with al-Qaida. These denials are simply not credible. Last year, an al-Qaida associate bragged that the situation in Iraq was "good," that Baghdad could be transited quickly."
"We know these affiliates are connected to Zakawi because they remain, even today, in regular contact with his direct subordinates, include the poison cell plotters. And they are involved in moving more than money and materiel. Last year, two suspected al-Qaida operatives were arrested crossing from Iraq into Saudi Arabia. They were linked to associates of the Baghdad cell and one of them received training in Afghanistan on how to use cyanide."
Lots of pictures that Colin Powell used in his speech on this site.
