As more weapon technology becomes available the CIA is worried that too much of this information is being shared.The CIA also thinks smaller groups could use this infor to produce chemical and weapons for use in smaller attacks.


WASHINGTON (AP) -- The CIA is increasingly concerned that more countries may be spreading technology or expertise that can be used to make weapons of mass destruction and possibly going a dangerous step further than has been seen previously.

The CIA's worry: Governments that have been receiving weapons technology from other countries may be turning around and sharing it with what the agency calls "nonstate actors" - often defined as terror groups.

So much of this information is probably readily available to anyone who wants it. What makes this scary is that the CIA is admitting as much.

Doesnt really sound suprising and admitting such doesnt make difference, answering to force with force always leads to circle of revenge. Im personally suprised any big epidemics by some chemical weapon havent occured, ok US had Anthrax letters but it could have been much worse, if person starting it wanted, seemed it was more likely only political reason or personal revenge to goverment. Have to be happy not many nuts get to position to have access for such "weapons". Money run people and islamic terrorist groups have rich sponsors so i dont think money is biggest problem to get such weapons, maybe some people still have ethic left to not do business with such scum whos goal is to kill many as possible and spread terror. Threat level would go down dramatically if US wouldnt run such aggressive foreign policy on countrys that almost live in anarchy or are just fanatic fundamentalists. Maybe politic currently run pays back in future generation unless those are again raised with hatred in mind.
