The US Chemical Weapons Destruction Program: Views, Analysis, and Recommendations

in Program

Report 13

This work provides an overview of the controversies associated with the Army’s stockpile incineration program, which is slated to operate in eight different US sites where the weapons are stored. The report also turns a critical eye to the charges made by opponents to the Army’s program, finding the science behind some of these allegations to be poor and lacking in discipline. Consequently, the report recommends that the Army’s program be assessed on its own merits, not on the negative stereotype of incineration, and that opposition charges be viewed skeptically. Other recommendations are aimed at facilitating citizen participation in the decision-making process and improving oversight of the Army’s program.
