Tell 'em who sent ya: Rumsfeld

Kurd tells of gas attacks at Saddam trial:

The prosecution alleges that up to 182,000 civilians were slaughtered in airstrikes, poison gas attacks, and armed sweeps by Iraqi forces through designated "prohibited zones" in Kurdish regions.
"The jets started firing on the villages of Belisand and Sheikwasan. The explosions were not very loud," he continued, testifying in open court, unlike the anonymous witnesses in Saddam's first trial for mass murder.

"There was green smoke rising from the bomb later, as if there was a rotten apple or garlic smell. Lots of citizens immediately had red eyes and began to vomit. Afterwards it was dark," the middle-aged farmer continued.
