Shocking revelation RAI News 24.
White phosphorous used on the civilian populace:
This is how the US "took" Fallujah. New napalm formula also used.
November 7, 2005 - "La Repubblica" -- -- ROME.
In soldier slang they call it Willy 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. The Americans are responsible for a massacre
using unconventional weapons, the identical charge for which Saddam Hussein stands accused. An investigation by RAI News 24,
the all-news Italian satellite television channel, has pulled the veil from one of the most carefully concealed mysteries
from the front in the entire US military campaign in Iraq.
A US veteran of the Iraq war told RAI New correspondent
Sigfrido Ranucci this: 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.
News 24's investigative story, Fallujah, The Concealed Massacre, will be broadcast tomorrow on RAI-3 and will contain
not only eye-witness accounts by US military personnel but those from Fallujah residents. A rain of fire descended on the
city. People who were exposed to those multicolored substance began to burn. We found people with bizarre wounds-their bodies
burned but their clothes intact, relates Mohamad Tareq al-Deraji, a biologist and Fallujah resident.
I gathered accounts
of the use of phosphorus and napalm from a few Fallujah refugees whom I met before being kidnapped, says Manifesto reporter
Giuliana Sgrena, who was kidnapped in Fallujah last February, in a recorded interview. I wanted to get the story out, but
my kidnappers would not permit it.
RAI News 24 will broadcast video and photographs taken in the Iraqi city during
and after the November 2004 bombardment which prove that the US military, contrary to statements in a December 9 communiqué
from the US Department of State, did not use phosphorus to illuminate enemy positions (which would have been legitimate) but
instend dropped white phosphorus indiscriminately and in massive quantities on the city's neighborhoods.
In the investigative
story, produced by Maurizio Torrealta, dramatic footage is shown revealing the effects of the bombardment on civilians, women
and children, some of whom were surprised in their sleep.
The investigation will also broadcast documentary proof of
the use in Iraq of a new napalm formula called MK77. The use of the incendiary substance on civilians is forbidden by a 1980
UN treaty. The use of chemical weapons is forbidden by a treaty which the US signed in 1997.
Fallujah. La strage
nascosta [Fallujah, The Concealed Massacre] will be shown on RAI News tomorrow November 8th at 07:35 (via HOT BIRDTM statellite,
Sky Channel 506 and RAI-3), and rebroadcast by HOT BIRDTM satellite and Sky Channel 506 at 17:00 [5 pm] and over the next
Weapons of Mass Destruction Employed by US to Imolate Falluja: White Phosphorus is a Chemical Weapon
Created: 09 Dec 2004 Updated: 27 Jan 2005
On November 12, 2004, the U.S. Department of Defense issued a denial of the chemical weapons charge, stating:
"The United States categorically denies the use of chemical weapons at anytime in Iraq, which includes the ongoing
Fallujah operation. Furthermore, the United States does not under any circumstance support or condone the development,
production, acquisition, transfer or use of chemical weapons by any country. All chemical weapons currently
possessed by the United States have been declared to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) and are
being destroyed in the United States in accordance with our obligations under the Chemical Weapons Convention."
NOTE: Though the above post uses 8 different links to help identify the so-called "misinformation",
no link is provided to the quoted "statement" issued by the DoD.
We have been unable to find the statement on the DoD website, searching google for the statement only found a
report on a press release by the Port of Spain Embassy:
the above USINFO article has now been updated as follows:
[November 10, 2005 note: We have learned that some of the information we were provided in the above paragraph is incorrect.
White phosphorous shells, which produce smoke, were used in Fallujah not for illumination but for screening purposes, i.e.,
obscuring troop movements and, according to an article, "The Fight for Fallujah,"
in the March-April 2005 issue of Field Artillery
magazine, "as a potent psychological weapon against the insurgents
in trench lines and spider holes …." The article states that U.S. forces used white phosphorous rounds to flush out
enemy fighters so that they could then be killed with high explosive rounds.]
There is a great deal of misinformation
feeding on itself about U.S. forces allegedly using "outlawed" weapons in Fallujah. The facts are that U.S. forces are not
using any illegal weapons in Fallujah or anywhere else in Iraq.
Created: 09 Dec 2004 Updated: 10 Nov 2005
The current post in the misinfo section of the USINFO website regarding the use of chemical weapons refers to the
same statement but does not provide any link at all whatsoever. It only states:
"These facts are the same in September 2005 as they were in November 2004."
Terrorist leader Zarqawi makes false claim
Created: 12 Sep 2005 Updated: 13 Sep 2005
Strange, isn't it? Actually very little in view of a possible war crime.
Least it brings up the question who is spreading misinformation?
Worth reading is the following post found at Blogesque
that has included an animated GIF
of satellite images taken before and after November 4, 2004 (not included below)
It is the photographs that give one the vivid realization of what actually took place. Words don't do it…You
read that, and it's one thing. You see the photographs … and you cannot help but be outraged.
– US Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, May 7 2004
Rumsfeld was actually testifying before the Senate Armed Services Committee concerning Abu Ghraib when he said that,
but it could just as easily apply to November's attack on Fallujah. I'm not referring to on-the-ground news & combat video
or photos of the dead
. I'm referring to the apparent firebombing
of the city during the news blackout
. Was it really necessary to literally destroy roughly a third
of the city (pop. 300K)?
is a series of satellite images of Fallujah
from November 5 2004 by Digital Globe. It depicts the locations of neighborhoods, mosques, and American forces. It does not,
however, depict the aftermath. For that, you have to go to a huge (12MB) IKONOS image
that was taken November 14 2004. If you have a high-speed internet connection, I recommend you view the fullsized image,
as you can see details in the burned-out sections of town. If you're on a dial-up connection, try this one
The first 2 frames in the animated GIF
are from Digital Globe (diagramming theirs), the third is from IKONOS. All I did was resize and align the images to each
other for comparison, then animate the sequence. The GIF is displayed half-size so as to not break my formatting - click it
for full-size. In light of der Dubyer's saber-rattling inauguration speech
, I thought it might be worthwhile to revisit.
Let's recall President Bush's remarks on the capture of Saddam Hussein:
"I think he ought to receive the ultimate penalty... for what he has done to his people...,"
Bush said on Tuesday
in an interview with ABC television."But that will be decided not by the President of the United States, but by
the citizens of Iraq in one form or another,"
he said, adding that Iraqis are "capable of conducting the trial themselves".
"He is a torturer, a murderer, and they had rape rooms, and this is a disgusting tyrant who deserves justice,
the ultimate justice," Bush said, according to excerpts of the interview released by ABC television.
The deposed Iraqi ruler was arrested on Saturday by US troops. He is currently under interrogation by CIA agents.
I'm quite confident that George W. Bush and Tony Blair can rely on the double standard of our so-called "civilized world"
to be spared the same fate.
