Libya's WMD Stockpiles Are Secure: Pentagon
From AFP: The Pentagon said Aug. 24 that Libya's stockpile of chemical weapons are "secure" but that an arsenal of thousands of shoulder-launched missiles remained cause for concern.
Asked if sites containing chemical weapons, including over 10 tons of mustard gas, were safe, spokesman Col. Dave Lapan said: "Yes."
But he declined to offer more details, only saying that "clearly those are dangerous agents and weapons ... we continue to monitor that."
There were no plans to send U.S. troops in to secure the chemical weapons sites, he told reporters. (photo: bioprepwatch.com)
