Russian forces apparently used some sort of hallucinogenic, anti-Chechnyan nerve agent (BZ) which they're not supposed to have. Oh well, anything's fair in the war against terrorism.
I wonder how Dubya and the US forces would have handled the situation?

just when no one thought Russia could get any worse. Well, just when people stopped thinking about Russia.
I don't envy Putin's position, but I am curious to hear the reasoning that led to the use of this noxious chemical, which has now killed more hostages than the Chechen kidnappers.
