First batches of deadly nerve agent destroyed
NEWPORT, Ind. — An Army contractor destroyed the first batches of a deadly nerve agent stored in western Indiana after workers fine-tuning the process adjusted the speed at which the liquid was fed into two chemical reactors.
A preliminary analysis showed that 180 gallons of VX nerve agent were successfully neutralized Friday inside the reactors at the Newport Chemical Agent Disposal Facility, said Col. Jesse Barber, the project manager."
It's about time they destroyed that stuff.
