ITALIAN TV TO SHOW MARINE'S USE OF PHOSPHORUS IN TAKING FALLUJAH

"Western Infidels, even if your interpretation were the correct one (and I doubt seriously that it is)..."

Of the two possible interpretations, one is clearly incorrect (that no one covered the battle of Fallujah) and the other is clearly correct (that there was virtually no coverage of the chemical/incendiary weapons aspect of the battle of Fallujah). You've chosen to believe that the clearly incorrect interpretation is the intended one, for no reason that you're willing to state. You've further decided that the accuracy of the whole report is called into question because they got this point wrong. You've already made up your mind about the whole issue, and you're re-interpreting the reality around you to preserve your comfortable complacency. That's irrational.

"it would still be wrong."

The story you linked to wasn't one of Rick's links, and it's only a single paragraph amid a veritable firestorm of press coverage on Fallujah. How exactly is the writer of a followup piece supposed to find such a tiny mention?

The point being made was that this aspect of the battle of Fallujah went almost entirely unnoticed by the Western press. That point stands unscathed by the discovery of a single paragraph of text. Find a dozen more like it, find a few headlines, and you might have something. One might even view the triviality of this coverage as the exception that proves the rule; there were people over here who knew we were using Geneva-banned chemical/incendiary weapons in Iraq - yet no one cared enough to make a ruckus.

It's perfectly clear that "the assault, which went unreported by any Western journalists" refers to the use of WP as a weapon, not the battle of Fallujah. And what do you know, the news stories you link to don't mention anything about WP-as-a-weapon. You're just being deliberately obtuse here.

TOOTING MY OWN HORN SO THAT YOU DON'T HAVE TO

Do you seriously wish to imply that starting a war on false grounds is for "the good of the nation?"

Attempting to find out the truth, even if it meant discrediting what the President told us about WMD, even if it meant becoming embroilled in a career-ending scandal, was the most patriotic course of action of all.
