Sunni Insurgents Occupy Chemical Weapons Facility

(Washington, DC) -- U.S. officials say insurgents in Iraq now occupy a chemical weapons storage facility. Political scientist and former military advisor Seth Jones says he doesn't think ISIS militants will be able to make much use of the materials.
The complex was once part of Saddam Hussein's chemical weapons program and it still contains a stockpile of old weapons. In the 1980s, Hussein used the complex to produce sarin, mustard gas and the nerve agent VX.
