The Army secretly dumped at least 64 million pounds of chemical weapons off the coastlines of 11 states and 16 other countries, didn't tell anyone about it, and 20 years ago stopped checking the few sites that were ever inspected.

The Army doesn't know where all the dumpsites are located, and admits that more likely exist than have been discovered.

The investigators looked at the British government's solutions to offshore dumping in British waters.
