      You can't simply take a chemical warhead from a missile, duct tape it to a rock and drop it from a plane, and so on.  A warhead's fuse and shape is tightly tied to its delivery mechanism, so if you want to switch delivery methods, you have to deconstruct the warhead and reconstruct a new one.  This takes a lot of careful work at specialized facilities, which are presumably on the President's target list.
