US used napalm in Iraq

When is napalm not napalm? Apparently when the US army says it isn't:
The Pentagon said it had not tried to deceive. It drew a distinction between traditional napalm, first invented in 1942, and the weapons dropped in Iraq, which it calls Mark 77 firebombs....Officials said that if journalists had asked about the firebombs their use would have been confirmed. A spokesman admitted they were "remarkably similar" to napalm but said they caused less environmental damage.
Makes one wonder why they don't call it "Super-Happy-Fun-Ball" or something like that.
