Enclosed is the e-mail I got with all units blocked out:

Anthrax would take a day or two to appear, something immediate would be a blood or nerve agent or chemical

Can you describe symptoms?

>Go for it. I didn't want to post it here until I heard back from Xxxx's wife for the confirmation. She said that some of the field tests came back positive, but that XXXxx couldn't reveal what agents were present in the air. He said that quite a few of the 5/14 soldiers were very sick, and were medevaced and being treated. With that info, I would assume that it would be anthrax or sarin, and not mustard or another blistering agent. The large number of Iraqi citizens that were very sick is what really makes you think that it was a large quantity of some type of WMD, tho'. Feel free to post this tho', and use the unit as well. Just blot out XXX XXXX XXXX's name for now.

>>>I got a call from a dear friend's wife yesterday morning. My friend, Xxx Xxx Xxxxx, has been in Iraq just south of Baghdad since Aug. He is serving with 5/14 of the US Army's 10th Mountain DIV. They found a huge cache of mortars and arty shells, and when they blew them up, a HUGE MUSHROOM cloud went up, and a sticky substance dissipated all over the area, to include a suburb of Baghdad. Many of XXxxx soldiers got sick, as well as hundreds of Iraqi civilians as well. The insurgents started firing off mortars onto their basecamp, and got the citizens riled up as well, blaming the Americans for "gassing" them. Many tests are being conducted by our NBC folks to determine the gas that was released by the explosions of this cache. XXxxxxx said that the suspected WMD's were buried in a bunker, just beneath the uncovered weapons cache. The detonation of the weapons cache must've accidentally exploded the suspected WMD's as well, thus unleashing the concoction into the air. I'll keep ya' posted on anything his wife tells me. Keep looking for any info on this possible WMD find as well. This could be the beginning of a big find and overwhelming proof of Saddam's WMD arsenal, and it could blow up in the face of the Dems and liberals who have sought to discredit GWB and our mission as well!

Nerve agents are often mixed with a sticky carrier to keep them on the skin. Mild doses may take upwards of 18 hours to show symptoms.

The political spin at the end of your post #50 indicates to me that you are being played. A soldier in the middle of a fight would not think about such things.

The Republicans are going to have to do a much better job of educating sheeple about these Islamic fundamentalists.
This type of information is never being received by the general public.

This would have happened 36+ hours ago and there are no official reports?

Funny I thought the libtards said there were no WMD in Saddam's Iraq ......

No doubt they will stick to that claim until they themselves lie twitching on the ground spasming so hard their bones are breaking.......

IMHO, a lot of stuff will be uncovered by various means in the years to come. Probably tens of thousands of tons of stuff buried in backyards, held under water of rivers by chains, and buried in the remote desert areas that fringe most of central Iraq. Prayers for our soldiers and the innocent Iraqi that are now possibly extremly sick to be returned to full health.
