No. Reread my post. I said the publicly stated, the proximate reason, was so that
recipes for CBW didn't make it into the public realm (which is credible). The
ultimate reason was that, because of the age of most of the material, there was a
danger that the ultimate source of the technology would become public: the USA to
Pakistan when Pakistan was its client in South Asia during the Cold War.
I'm not suggesting you bomb Pakistan. I'm suggesting you keep your weapons of mass
destruction at home.
