"Chemical and Biological Warfare Unmasked."
For the first time in more than 25 years, the U.S. may
be waking up to the seriousness of CBW. This high-level
awakening is long overdue and reflected in a sudden
increase in CBW sensor development research and counter-
proliferation programs. Still, these steps blithely
disregards 25 years of revolutionary advances in the
biological and chemical sciences and the potential
products of the Russian program. There is no allowance
for "nonmilitary" CBW applications. Yet the most
troublesome developments in the Russian CBW program are
agents designed for covert use against diplomats,
politicians and business executives. Also absent is
serious attention to terrorist motivations and options.
