    After all the other 'reasons' given by the IDF who will believe the IDF now? How did an organization which was once seen by most as being incredibly credible, come to be believed by none but the most purblind? There is nothing much in the medical or chemical warfare literature to give any support for the idea that CS administered by canister in the open with a breeze might cause death. Yet instead of the truth the IDF came out with a series of unsupportable suggestions and outright lies, which it now has to pretend it didn't say for it's current explanation to be credible. I recommend that the IDF fire it's propagandists and take up it's old practice of telling the truth. In this case the truth was that CS was used, it was used in quantities which cannot be lethal, and that the woman's death probably had little or nothing to do with the CS. Nothing more need have been said. No speculation, no smears. The truth wasn't good enough for the IDF, which is the real problem.
