Finally: Evidence of WMD in Iraq (video)
Updated: This devastating [VIDEO] documenting the use of a napalm-like substance that melts flesh must be seen to be believed. It's 30 minutes long and relies on the claims of two US soldiers and a former MP from the UK but watch and decide for yourself.
An Italian satellite TV station, RAI News 24, will broadcast a program tonight that claims to have proof that the US used a napalm-like chemical on civilians in Iraq.
A translation of this La Republicca story appears on paper tigress's blog:
"In soldier slang they call it Willy Pete [actually, it's Whiskey Pete]. The technical name is white phosphorus. In theory its purpose is to illumine enemy positions in the dark. In practice, it was used as a chemical weapon in the rebel stronghold of Fallujah. And it was used not only against enemy combatants and guerrillas, but again innocent civilians."One US vet is reported to say: "I received the order use caution because we had used white phosphorus on Fallujah. In military slag it is called 'Willy Pete'. Phosphorus burns the human body on contact--it even melts it right down to the bone."
We'll see if the US media explores the claim further. First the NY Times is scooped on its own reporter's story and now the entire US media is scooped on US war crimes... (DailyKos)
