Now it looks like the safety of our own troops during an invasion of Iraq is largely in question, and just plain hasn't been thought out all that well yet.
There could be a ton of bogus equipment (including as many as 250,000 unaccounted for defective biohazard suits) that's mixed in with the inventory shipped out to our active troops.
The Department of Defense Reps are also admitting that they are recalculating the risk because the old way of calculating the risk was inaccurate. Although they don't want to commit to saying one way or the other yet until they are finished, they did admit that they no longer feel that the risk would clearly be "low" (their previous assessment) and in fact might be "high" but that they really don't know yet because they've just come up with a new, better way of calculating the risk and they're not done yet.
It's worth watching and recording on CSPAN-HOUSE if you've got a VCR handy.Posted by Lisa at October 04, 2002 01:46 PM | TrackBack
