U.S. Admits Using Napalm Bombs In Iraq: Report
“We napalmed both those [bridge] approaches,” the paper quoted Colonel James Alles, commander of Marine Air Group 11, as saying.

“Unfortunately there were people there … you could see them in the [cockpit] video. They were Iraqi soldiers. It’s no great way to die,” said Alles.

“Safwan Hill went up in a huge fireball and the observation post was obliterated. I pity anyone who is in there,” a Marine sergeant said

“The generals love napalm, it has a big psychological effect,” the paper quoted Alles as saying.

Marine Corps Maj-Gen Jim Amos confirmed to the paper that napalm was used on several occasions in the invasion.
