From: Roger Helbig <email@example.com> Subject: Battles of Fallujah Date: March 11, 2010 6:13:32 PM EST To: H-NET Military History Discussion List <H-WAR@H-NET.MSU.EDU> There has been widespread claim of massive numbers of birth defects and cancers in children resulting from the US weapons used in Fallujah. It has even managed to make the BBC and the Guardian before that. I am looking for first hand accounts that will prove that no depleted uranium kinetic energy penetrator munitions were used in either the First or Second Battle of Fallujah. I have simply been stating that there were no insurgent or Al Quaeda tanks so no targets for a tank killing munition that is not good for anything else. I am reasonably sure that these recent claims are more of the anti-DU propaganda began by Saddam Hussein in about 1992 and continuing to be actively nurtured by thousands of e-mails/web sites to this day. Thank you.
