CIA on Yugoslavia’s CW Program

A few years back, the CIA published an account of an analyst’s discovery of Yugoslavia’s offensive CW program during the mid-1990s. The article centers around a U.S. investigation of a CW production facility in Croatia and its fate during the civil war. There’s a good description of Serbia’s efforts to dismantle its own CW program, some of which involved destroying parts of this facility “in a matter of hours” – an action which “caused the deaths of several soldiers from CW agents”

In addition, the article discusses the means by which Yugoslavia hid the Croatia-based facility, although a fair amount of relevant info is redacted. In one case, the government chose not to prosecute “a few dozen villagers” who had “tapped into the plant’s dedicated water line,” rather than reveal the facility’s true purpose.

Worth your time.
