> U.S. DETONATED NEUTRON BOMBS: IRAQI COMMANDER
> Monday, April 16, 2007
> BAGHDAD - A former commander of Iraq's Republican Guard
> accused the U.S. military of detonating neutron bombs over
> Iraqi airspace.
> Saifeddin Fulayh Hassan Taha al-Rawi made his comments via
> video broadcasted by the Al-Jazeera news channel a week
> after the fourth anniversary of the fall of Baghdad.
> "The enemy used neutron and phosphorus weapons against
> Baghdad airport... there were bodies burnt to their bones,"
> he said. "The bombs annihilated soldiers but left the
> buildings and infrastructure at the airport intact."
> In all, about 2,000 Iraqi troops "fought until they were
> martyred" before the airport was finally captured on April
> 9, 2003, said al-Rawi.
> According to experts, a neutron bomb is a thermonuclear
> weapon. While its blast is negligible, it still releases
> large amounts of radiation that destroys human tissue.
> Rumors of such a blast have been circulating for years.
> This is perhaps the first instance of a high-ranking Iraqi
> soldier commenting on this issue.
> The Pentagon placed al-Rawi as number 14 on its most wanted
> list. In addition, the U.S. military has put out a $1
> million bounty on his head.
> A few days prior to al-Rawi's statement, The Iconoclast
> published an interview with Captain Eric H. May, commander
> of Ghost Troop, entitled "Battle of Baghdad Cover-up - Four
> Years Later," in which Capt. May said, "The truth is that
> the battle started April 5, the night that Baghdad Bob said
> that they had counterattacked us at the Baghdad Airport and
> there was a sustained fight that went on for several hours.
> The best evidence that I have from international sources,
> scientific sources, is that our position was becoming
> untenable at the Baghdad Airport and we used a neutron
> warhead, at least one. That is the big secret of Baghdad
> May, a former intelligence and public affairs officer in the
> military, said, "The biggest story of the war became a
> non-event when the truth of the matter was that it was
> simply too bloody an event to report." May says that the
> cover-up played a part in persuading the American public to
> forfeit "thinking for themselves" when it came to this war.
