The Department of Defense (DOD) believes it is increasingly likely
that an adversary will use chemical or biological weapons against
U.S. forces to degrade superior U.S. conventional warfare
capabilities, placing servicemembers' lives and effective military
operations at risk. To reduce the effects of such an attack on
military personnel, DOD has determined the quantity of chemical and
biological protective suits, masks, breathing filters, gloves,
boots, and hoods that are needed based on projected wartime
requirements. DOD's assessment process is unreliable for
determining the risk to military operations. DOD's 2000 report is
inaccurate because it includes erroneous inventory data and wartime
requirements. Inadequate inventory management is an additional risk
factor because readiness can be compromised by DOD's inventory
management practices, which prevent an accurate accounting of the
availability or adequacy of its protective equipment.
