Panic, stupor and confusion are the customary reactions by the Obama administration to reports of chemical weapons use in Syria.  They also happen to be hallmark symptoms of 3-quinuclidinyl benzilate (QNB).  This victim of the 23 December 2012 CW attack in Homs exhibits panic but, along with many others, suffered no physical injury.  In collaboration with a U.S.-based colleague (a Ph.D. in biotherapeutics and mass spectrometry) and the U.K.-based CBRNe World (a recognized global authority on CW), my analysis on Homs led Le Monde and other media worldwide to report the first “hard evidence” that Assad deployed chemical weapons on his people.  My report formed the basis of a briefing to the E.U. by French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius and was praised as a “careful, sophisticated analysis” by Princeton Prof. Anne-Marie Slaughter, former State Department official under Barack Obama.

U.S. Embassy Beirut was attacked in April 1983 by a suicide bomber who killed 17 Americans.
