Let's not worry about the politics until we find out how many people are affected by this please.

That is what my post was stating and why it was posted to the person it was responding too.

Any further updates or developments on this?

Scouring the dino media has resulted in zip, zero, nada which is not surprising.

The blogosphere has also yeilded the same.

Off to check Ray Robinson's site now.

"...Why would US troops falsify the report ?

No way would I believe they would, either.
I'll refrain from speculation, we'll know soon enough.

Still waiting, it all depends on the e-mails from Iraq to here now

This is hearsay reporting at best, irresponsible and dangerous at worst. E-mails – one or two times removed should be sat upon to avoid unnecessary speculation and possible undue alarm among families who have service men and women serving in Iraq. A true “FReeper Exclusive” should be an eye-witness account – not some e-mail...

My thoughts as well. Several factors involved, but I do not buy it as of yet.

It is an eye witness account, told through 2 person, admittedly, but from the source who got it first hand

You are correct, however email is now accepted in court from what I have heard. If you sent an email containing a terrorist threat, you are just as libel as making the terrorist threat in person, for example. But we definitely need confirmation. Perhaps we should probably look for confirmation in the Iraqi media. Sounds like a lot of Iraqi's were injured.

While a different war - we had numerous false-postives for chemical attacks during the Desert Storm ground war - most were caused by a toxic mix of a modern battlefield and the oil-field fires. Not sure what this account is all about - but one should not specualte until more definitive information is available.

Someday you should hope to have the credibilty of RaceBannon here.

If "he" felt the report was credible enough to post here, especially in "Breaking News", that's good enough for me.

Well stated and until collaborated by more sources than one E-mail twice removed it might better be considered "Breaking Rumor."

I have been wrong before, but I never posted somethig that I doubted without stating it was doubtful.

I trust my source and stick by my story.

If it is false or exaggerated, I will mea culpa openly. :)

By the way, I was given this information because I was posting JVERITAS translation and other news articles on WMD's for some time on another website.

I was his trusted source to reveal it.

If true it surprises me that some of the cable news reporters in Iraq would not be affected by this and broadcast it, especially Fox News and their every 15 minutes breaking news alerts.

If it was a nerve agent or Sarin the symptoms would be all the dead people laying around the site. That would happen within minutes of the explosion.

Well, potentially, you can be libel for sending false or inflammatory information via email. Especially if you knew it was false at the time and the information was determined to be actionable. Someone called 'Foley' comes to mind.

I hope you get a response soon. There are many Freepers that have family members, friends serving in Iraq that may be concerned, worried about this.

It takes two chemicals mixed together to activate the agent. That is why the comment about the rounds needing to spin is about. The chemicals are designed to be stored until needed. Military stockpiles of weapons are designed to function when needed.

Sorry but I think an I-told-you-so is VERY MUCH in order. The Democrats called the President a liar and used this accusation to great effect to cripple the war effort by undermining public support for it. Anything that would reveal (truthfully and justly -- no dirty tricks) to the general wobbly swing voter the Democratic Party's terminal unseriousness on foreign policy/use of force is CRUCIAL to finding a way to win.

Attitudes like that do not help the war effort. Bottom-line is that we have a war to win and playing the "there really were WMD" in Iraq game is distracting from that effort.
