Hundreds of munitions and beakers with vintage chemical weapons
, including "butter
, the "dew of death
," are being dug up in Washington DC -- less than five miles from the White House (around American University).
The chemicals date to WWI, during which chemical weapons resulted in a million casualties and about 26,000 deaths. This area, Spring Valley, is home to Diane Feinstein and AG Eric Holder. Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon and George HW Bush all lived there before entering the White House.
