    "It proves the bomb did not explode" The fact (?) that an unexploded Mk. 82 "dumb bomb" in the mill had to be defused by a UN bomb squad proves that the bomb was not what destroyed the mill, obviously. More importantly, it contradicts the Goldstone claim that a "precision munition" was intentionally targeted to the mill. It establishes at most that a stray bomb lacking a functioning targetting system fell on the roof of the mill but did not penetrate, probably by hitting something else first, ricocheting hard enough to break in half, which piece landed on the roof after a hard bounce. Hardly "precision targeting"! It was collateral damage, at most. Goldstone's "precision targeting" claim establishes his bias, dishonesty and incompetence as an "investigator". Further proof of Goldstone's lies - that the mill was essential to Gaza civilian sustence to begin with - most wheat products by far that feed Gaza come from already milled flour in aid shipments that were on going at the time.
