Pentagon Denies Vatican Official's Claim...sort of

From NEWS.com.au | 77,000 body bags: (February 11, 2003)

The Pentagon yesterday denied a claim by a senior Vatican official that the US was secretly shipping 100,000 body bags and 6000 coffins to a military base in Sicily.

But it admitted that it has 34,000 of the bags stored at military bases around the world and available to be sent to the Gulf at short notice.
It has ordered another 8890 for delivery this week and is about to sign a contract for another 30,000 to be delivered next month.
