Now there's a strange way with words!

Israel has admitted – after mounting pressure – that its troops may have used white phosphorus shells in contravention of international law, during its three-week offensive in the Gaza Strip.

It’s in The Guardian. My italics.

It’s like saying “I may have poisoned my husband’s dinner”. Honestly, unless you’re headed straight for Alzheimer’s, there’s no such thing. Are they alleging that some foot-soldier accidentally got out the phosphorous shells and fired them without his superiors’ knowledge? Of course, it wouldn’t be the first time foot-soldiers had to take the blame. Think Abu-Ghraib
