UK leaks evidence of CW use to the Times Newspaper

The Time today (Saturday) revealed that an MoD employee had leaked secret information to them over soil tests removed from Syria in a secret operation.

If true, it claims that something other than riot control agents was found, but was not conclusively identified.

While we will monitor this and ask DSTL Porton Down for a quote this was, in our opinion, the wrong thing of both the Times and the scientist to do, if true.

It not only reveals details of secret operations, potentially endangering operatives, it's not particularly conclusive - but the lack of a positive identification suggest the analysis is not complete.

We hope for a formal statement, and an investigation in to the leak. for an establishment like Porton Down to be leaking sensitive information endangering SF or intelligence operatives is completely unacceptable.
