We've got your WMDs Right Here

We just don't want to tell you...'cause we're using them. We knew that these weapons were used some in Chimpy's War, but I missed this.

American officials lied to British ministers over the use of "internationally reviled" napalm-type firebombs in Iraq...

...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.

Freedom, it comes with free toast.
