At the end of the day, the conclusions I came to were 100% correct.
The Tweet about VX Gas was REAL because I could PROVE that the person who Tweeted was a US Army Testing Engineer named Ashley Pallotta.
Mr. Mask, ATS is not a court of law. It's a website.
You scorned us as bad "ATS researchers", but at least somebody actually did the research and reached the correct conclusions, WITH EVIDENCE.
For what ever poor reasoning, you not only decided to not listen to the evidence, but you actively and persistently tried to persuade people it was wrong.
You should just go ahead and turn in your ATS card now for encouraging ignorance in the face of those who were actively denying ignorance.

I am not saying the lady is fake, but I AM saying there is no proof she posted that, or that that twitter page is legit.
No factual evidence as of yet. I salute the research being done here, and understand the need for speculation. But lets be clear on what IS confirmed and what is not.
Of course...I am willing to admit I don't know for sure and I may be wrong. But at least I'm allowing that. You on the other hand are promising the world that a weapon of mass destruction is missing based on "lacking evidence".
Again...I am not disregarding the tweets. I am strongly leaning towards it being a hoax or a rumor from someone not involved.
If evidence surfaces that the tweet was indeed from someone at the base, then (and only then) will I join Boon in his ranting about VX gas. Until then, I remain reserved.
If you want my guess work, here it is in order of what I "guess" is more likely.
6) VX Gas was stolen and then it was posted about on a tweet.

Well,at this point you would have to assume a biological weapon was stolen.
That is what dugway specialises in,bio weapons. This is kind of like in third grade,when a student stole anothers milk money,knowing the milk money was still in the class,noone could leave until it was found.
So,come on children just please give back the bio weapon,and you can all go to recess.
And after this situation is all said and done,wether a bio weapon is found or not,we will be told it was a security drill.

I wouldn't be worried about the base going into lockdown. I'm a veteran, and remember unannounced drills and such all the time. I would be worried if the government started quarrantining areas around the base though.
Speaking of foreign military here for training.. or special ogling the local teenagers ops.. thats something that has totally exploded at the base the husband works at now. I mean they come in by the hundreds... and this isnt a usual base youd see any real ops training of any kind. Ive never seen it at this high of a level in our entire lives being on bases everywhere. Pretty weird. Im going to freak out myself if I see a ton of UN guys stumbling around like I do other mil..
An estimated 1,200 to 1,400 people were locked inside the Dugway Proving Ground for several hours after a quarter of a teaspoon of VX nerve agent was reported missing. Officials said no-one was hurt and no damage reported. Base officials said the nerve agent had been found early on Thursday. Officials planned a news conference on Thursday afternoon. The primary mission for the Dugway Proving Ground, which is located about 85 miles (135km) south-west of Salt Lake City, is defending troops against biological and chemical attacks.

The facts have been confirmed, but not by you. It was confirmed by the mainstream media.

There is a fine line between preparedness and paranoia. Fear is not helpful but it is an obstacle which causes poor judgement.

I am the one who took the screenshot of Ashleys tweet on realtime.
I am honestly shocked right now at where my investigating led me on this one.
I was only accessing public information.
Now that this tweet is a subject of the news where does that leave me?
I have not broken any laws. Just reporting what I found.
