Destruction of chemical weapons stored at the Blue Grass Army Depot won't be complete by a government-imposed 2017 deadline unless officials consider other options, including moving chemical weapons to destruction facilities in Alabama and Arkansas, according to the Department of Defense. The mention of transporting the weapons drew quick criticism from watchdog groups and members of Congress, who said moving the weapons would be too risky and too controversial.
