Italian news channel reports U.S. used chemical weapons

RAI 24 News, a news channel in Italy, reports that the United States used white phosphorus as a chemical weapon in the November 2004 attack on Fallujah. The Christian Science Monitor writes about the piece, including information and links from other news sources. RAI's Web site includes a statement from the U.S. Embassy that, in part, says "The United States do not use napalm or white phosphorus as chemical weapons or as a surrogate. The United States have destroyed their last stock of napalm in 2001."
