Terrorists have used toxic chemicals and high-powered explosives on many occasions. Examples include bombing of the World Trade Center in 1993, deployment of the chemical agent sarin in the Tokyo subway system in 1995, and the bombing of the Oklahoma City Federal Building in the same year. The events of September 11, 2001, in New York City and Washington, D.C., changed the lives of people in the U.S. as well as in many other nations throughout the world. Sarin is one of several toxic chemicals defined as weapons of mass destruction (WMDs). WMDs “are capable of a high order of destruction and/or of being used in such a manner as to destroy large numbers of people. Weapons of mass destruction can be high explosives or nuclear, biological, chemical, and radiological weapons, but exclude the means of transporting or propelling the weapon where such means is a separable and divisible part of the weapon. Among weapons of massive destruction, besides high explosives, are the chemical, biological, and nuclear weapons” ( Dictionary of Military and Associated Terms , U.S. Department of Defense, Joint Publication, 2002). Use of WMDs, such as nuclear, biological, or chemical weapons by terrorists toward civilian targets, will cause large numbers of casualties.
