Chemical Bombs of USA in Cambodia?

Question

Frequently reported in Cambodia media , are press releases from the Government claiming "more US chemical bombs found".  I can not find anything.... Did USA use chemical bombs in Cambodia?   My understanding is that USA did not use chemical bombs since WW1.  Although, Agent Orange did contain some nasties, but not as a bomb, but as a spray.

My understanding - not that I have a book that gives references - is that the U.S. used tear gas in Cambodia but not any sort of poison. I will look through my library...
