Sarin in SyriaApril 26th, 2013
It looks like someone is using the deadly nerve agent sarin in the ongoing civil war in Syria, which may very well draw the United States into the conflict. I did a project on sarin for a class in my sophomore year of college at NYU. Here is the handout I prepared to accompany my talk.
Looking back on the document, a few things stand out:
1. It’s amazing how simple of a compound sarin is.
2. I had bizarre taste in fonts.
3. I’d forgotten I had written about Osama bin Laden a full year before the attacks on 9-11-01.
