US has no NAPALM in its Arsenal !!!!!!!!

Pentagon denies report on napalm
March 24 2003





The Pentagon has a denied a report in The Age on Saturday that napalm was used in an attack by US Navy planes on an Iraqi position at Safwan Hill in southern Iraq.

A navy official in Washington, Lieutenant-Commander Danny Hernandez, said: "We don't even have that in our arsenal." The US military says it last used napalm in 1993 and destroyed its last batch of the weapon in 2001.

The report was filed by Age correspondent Lindsay Murdoch, who is attached to units of the First US Marine Division.

Murdoch's report was based on information from two marine officers, who said napalm was used in the air strike on the hill. One of the officers repeated that napalm was used when Murdoch was asked by The Age foreign editor to confirm the story on Friday.

The denial of "detal force" would not be a political relations disaster if proven true.

There is only one newspaper in the entire world that reported the Napalm story in almost 72 hours.

The US has denied it. The US has denied Napalm is in the arsenal.
