A terrifying article on how the army has dumped millions of pounds of chemical weapons into the ocean; some are washing up now and harming people.
The reports reveal that the Army created at least 26 chemical weapons dumpsites off the coast of at least 11 states -- but knows the rough nautical coordinates of only half.
At least 64 million pounds of liquid mustard gas and nerve agent in 1-ton steel canisters were dumped into the sea, along with a minimum of 400,000 chemical-filled bombs, grenades, landmines and rockets -- as well as radioactive waste, the reports indicate.
There are countless more dumpsites that are not off the US coast, the article also reveals. This practice continued until the early 1970's.
