Here is what we need to do. Find experts who will completely rule out the possibility that DU could have caused a mass casualty event. I would say that, but I am not an expert. Then we can show, if it wasn't the DU causing the cancer, what was it? Becuase these documents undeniably indicate that Iraq believed radiation was causing cancer. We can derive that it wasn't DU if an expert says it wasn't and we can derive that the Iraqi experts would know that as well. The whole DU thing was played up as a cover story for the nuclear testing. This might be the case, I can't know for sure. But if enough pieces fit together, the military might be able to convince an Iraqi to talk or even go check out the site.
Everyone be sure to read through the whole thread, lots of info and research throughout!
