I won't go into all the details, but the Pentagon has come out and admitted using white phosphorus as a weapon in Falluja. This, after weeks of denial and all kinds of defenders saying it wasn't so. Via Needlenose:
Lt. Col. Barry Venable, a Pentagon spokesman, said that while white phosphorous is most frequently used to mark targets or obscure a position, it was used at times in Fallujah as an incendiary weapon against enemy combatants.

"It was not used against civilians," Venable said.
Ah huh.

Remember? Just like New Orleans, they told all the civilians to evacuate. And everyone lockstepped away from their homes out of town.


Thanks to Jage for the image...one of my favs.

We knew about this long since, but a little verification is nice. Next will be "a few civilians may have gotten in the way", "but the insurgents were using civilians as human shields", "those hajjis all look alike", etc. And then a photo of a burned child will appear... (already has, I think). sigh

Perhaps I'm missing the obvious here, but what, perchance, does 'EOD' mean?

Thank you for asking.
