Members of Congress, the state, the city and environmental groups are
joining a growing chorus demanding answers about the status of thousands
of tons of chemical weapons that were dumped in waters off south O'ahu
after World War II.

Both Reps. Neil Abercrombie and Ed Case are calling for an official
inquiry, and are scheduled to be briefed by the Army this week in Washington.

Local congressmen are not the only ones pushing for answers into the
Army's practice of dumping of chemicals in waters off at least 11
states, including Hawai'i.
