BushInc. lied to the Brits about the use of Napalm

Many of us will never forget the terrible picture of the screaming children running, who had been burned by Napalm during the Vietnam War! BushInc. has told so many painful and embaressing lies. It is finally time for US to discover and sadly learn painful lessons concerning, the full truth, and put this entire shameful and sad episode of US history, behind US ASAP.

Despite persistent rumours of injuries among Iraqis consistent with the use of incendiary weapons such as napalm, Adam Ingram, the Defence minister, assured Labour MPs in January that US forces had not used a new generation of incendiary weapons, codenamed MK77, in Iraq.
But Mr Ingram admitted to the Labour MP Harry Cohen in a private letter obtained by The Independent that he had inadvertently misled Parliament because he had been misinformed by the US. "The US confirmed to my officials that they had not used MK77s in Iraq at any time and this was the basis of my response to you," he told Mr Cohen. "I regret to say that I have since discovered that this is not the case and must now correct the position."
