Chemical Weapon Dangers in Iraq

U.S. military experts are still trying to determine if barrels uncovered on the road to Baghdad, contain the makings of chemical weapons.

An FSU professor is anxiously waiting for answers, after working with the military to improve its chemical response training.

U.S. soldiers in Baghdad have just uncovered a stack of protective suits and gas masks.

Toxicologist Christopher Teaf is watching and waiting for more information too. He helps to head up FSU's Center for Biomedical and Toxicological Research. He said he would not be at all surprised if the U.S. uncovers chemical weapons in Iraq.

Teaf has worked with the military to improve its chemical response training. He says soldiers in Iraq are prepared to encounter nerve agents like Sarin and Tabun and blister agents like Mustard Gas and Arsenic.
