Your second comment is appropriate. I worked at a lab were WR2721 was used for years. The problem was that it had to be given to the animals before exposures.
I am not sure about the first comment. When your mission is to fund research using money that is not yours (the taxpayers') everything seems worthwhile.

1) DARPA is not known for funding bogus science.
2) The crux indeed is whether the antioxidant, radical scavenging activity will help in a post-exposure scenario, i.e., when most or all of the initial radicals are gone long ago.
