The United States administration is required by Congress to prepare an annual report on military assistance, military exports, and military imports
known as the "Section 655" report (after the section of the Foreign Assistance Act which requires it). This report provides the most detailed
official accounting available of specific U.S. weapons systems exported or licensed for export to governments or private buyers around the
If this is meant to be a military export report; then why does it list (along with weapons and electronics) chemical agents and herbicides fro Angola
to the tune of $US2.2m. Could these chemicals be used to initiate a CW program. I'll see if I can find out what types they are.
PS. I've just read on a bit more and have noticed that Australia has been bought roughly the same amounts.
I'm still curious as to why herbicides are classed as a military
transfer and not civilian.
