Weapons of Mass Destruction found in Iraq

..except, it was us that was using them. In a report in the Independent, US forces are accused of using white phosphorus shells as a weapon.

Powerful new evidence emerged yesterday that the United States dropped massive quantities of white phosphorus on the Iraqi city of Fallujah during the attack on the city in November 2004, killing insurgents and civilians with the appalling burns that are the signature of this weapon.

But now new information has surfaced, including hideous photographs and videos and interviews with American soldiers who took part in the Fallujah attack, which provides graphic proof that phosphorus shells were widely deployed in the city as a weapon.

Is there any low the Bush administration won't sink to? Torture, abductions, secret trials, chemical weapons... I don't recognize the U.S.A. anymore.
