Troops, journalists undergo cleanup for nerve gas exposure

ALBU MUHAWISH, Iraq - U.S. soldiers evacuated an Iraqi military compound on Sunday after tests by a mobile laboratory confirmed evidence of sarin nerve gas. More than a dozen soldiers of the Army's 101st Airborne Division had been sent earlier for chemical weapons decontamination after they exhibited symptoms of possible exposure to nerve agents.

The evacuation of dozens of soldiers Sunday night followed a day of tests for the nerve agent that came back positive, then negative. Additional tests Sunday night by an Army Fox mobile nuclear, biological and chemical detection laboratory confirmed the existence of sarin.

A search of Yahoo and CNN did not support this tabloids news break......

Anyone have confirmation on any of the language in Michaels URL?.

If this turns out to be completely untrue, I believe civil and criminal proceedings should be initiated against this Newspaper and Editor.
