Pentagon. No white phosphorus used, just napalm

 <The US military> confirmed, however, that U.S. forces had dropped MK 77 firebombs — which a documentary on Italian state-run broadcaster RAI compared to napalm — against military targets in Iraq in March and April 2003.

The civilians in these bombed cities were not "military targets." Lordy, these Pentagon weasels lie worse than they did in the Vietnam days, and that’s saying something.

The documentary showed images of bodies recovered after a November 2004 offensive by U.S. troops on the town of Falluja, which it said proved the use of white phosphorus against men, women and children who were burned to the bone.
