Dear Alun, Aren't you jumping to (unfounded) conclusions? A useless document? The US military NOT bombing Iraqi infra-structure? Do you really believe that Iraqi water systems have never been bombed? The US military may be full of really nice people, but it is those very "really nice people" who cause so much havoc, including "collateral damage". Maybe you're underestimating CASI - it includes a number of experts in politics, science etc., as well as ordinary folks with plenty of common sense. CASI is no "ship of fools"!
