A little more on the use of napalm from a U. S. air force web site, under the heading Disinformation Alert:

"Report: U.S. military used napalm in the bombing of Iraq (Sydney Morning Herald, March 22, 2003.
Ground Truth: The United States took napalm out of service in the early 1970s. We completed destruction of all 2.7 million gallons of napalm on April 4, 2001. The claims that we are using napalm in Iraq are patently false. We have contacted the Sydney Morning Herald and asked for a correction. They tell us they are pulling the story."

I guess by the term 'Disinformation Alert' they are alerting us that whatever follows will be disinformation.
