The al-Sadd battalion was guarding the chemical weapons factory and warehouse. However, the battalion has since withdrawn to Misratah, leaving a stockpile of deadly weapons vulnerable to theft.
The current number of guards at the chemical weapons site, which contains 9 tons of mustard gas and dozens of barrels contaminated with chemicals, is just two men armed with Kalashnikov rifles.
Hamzah al-Shaibani, spokesman for the 17 February revolution committee said in a telephone interview with Asharq al-Awsat yesterday that: "We appeal to the United Nations and the Transitional National Council to protect and secure the area, because it represents a grave danger."
Al-Shaibani said that a pungent stench has engulfed the area surrounding the chemical weapons store, "as a result of a slight leak inside the warehouse which we are afraid might become worse."
The sources added that the warehouse containing chemical weapons and mustard gas is located in an open area of al-Ruwadah Valley, and is currently unsecured.
"anyone can access these weapons, and take whatever they want. Anyone who says that he is a revolutionary is granted a permit to enter unaccompanied, and he can take whatever weapons he wants without supervision, and without recording what kind of weapons he takes, including chemical substances."
Experts from the United Nations arrived shortly after the revolutionaries took control of the region. The experts discovered leak in the chemical weapons warehouse, and decided to send a full team in the near future. However, to date, this team has not arrived.
Leading up to the site, a sign simply reads: "No Entry
Mustard Gas and Chemicals." There is no barbed wire or fences.

Soon to be shipped to the Muslims in Egypt to use against Christian Copts.
I REALLY hope we extend refugee status to the Copts. Unlike most idiot Americans, THEY understand the evil of Islam and that “Islamist” and “Muslim” are merely two different flavors of the same poison.
We could use them here in our war with domestic Muslims.
My doctor and her husband are Christians from Egypt....they are such nice people. He is an expert in hand surgery and she is GP.
I’m sure that Obama and Hillary are right on top of this situation!
They may want to hide all of their young boys and little girls first.
“We appeal to the United Nations and the Transitional National Council to protect and secure the area, because it represents a grave danger.” Gosh, that’s kind of a crazy idea. ;’) Thanks gandalftb.
They easily found Khadafy’s WMD factory but could not find Saddam’s. Go Figure.
Well, Saddam didn't have one in 2003.
Yes, he did.
Well certainly it’s time for the UN to put this issue on its top burner agenda.................. “Hmm, I see that we have some free time next June 24th at 3pm - can I pencil you in?.....
No boots on the ground, but it appears to be an immediate time to send in our troops to secure the area, confiscate the WMD’s, and pull out.
“Either you join us in the fight against terror, or you will be considered a terrorist.”
Aspirin as weapon of mass modernist deconstruction?
Saddam’s factory was in Libya. It was a joint venture.
I'm pretty sure we will soon find Saddam's stockpile in Syria.
A 50 to 75 kiloton airburst ought to clean that location .............................. FRegards

What did he use on the Kurds?
1990 : (LESS SOPHISTICATED IRAQI PROGRAMS GO TO SUDAN, MORE SOPHISTICATED ONES GO TO LIBYA TO EVADE INSPECTIONS & DESTRUCTION) By the time the Gulf Crisis erupted in 1990, several Iraqi researchers were already working in Libya as individuals, as were several foreign scientists who had worked in Iraq beforehand. Most were working on Chemical weapons projects, primarily in Rabta. At first Saddam reluctant to share with Qadhafi some of the unique achievements of the Iraqis. However, with pressure from UN inspections mounting, and with intelligence leaking from defectors, Iraq had no alternative but to transfer more and more sensitive projects to Libya as the sole venue for their continuation. Although Sudan was glad to receive anything Iraq had to offer, it had such an abysmal scientific- technological infrastructure that it could not sustain the more sophisticated Iraqi programs. Thus, with not too many takers of the Iraqi systems, Libya would have to do. Meanwhile, Qadhafi was most interested in receiving extensive help from Iraqi scientists for his own covert, biological, weapons program and conditioned his support for Saddam on cooperation in this field. - Yossef Bodansky, “The Iraqi WMD Challenge - Myths and Reality,” TASK FORCE ON TERRORISM & UNCONVENTIONAL WARFARE, U.S. House of Representatives, Washington, D.C. 20515 , February 10, 1998
