Thank you Attila.  This has been discussed on a number of occasions on the
CASI list; visiting the search page
( and searching on "chlorine" and
"banned" pulls up a number of references, including the following:  That particular posting
is written by Milan Rai, of Voices UK, who challenges the Iraqi government
