U.N. agency says 350 metric tons of powerful explosives missing from Iraq

WTF?

VIENNA, Austria - Several hundred tons of conventional explosives are missing from a former Iraqi military facility that once played a key role in Saddam Husseinís efforts to build a nuclear bomb, the U.N. nuclear agency confirmed Monday.

International Atomic Energy Agency chief Mohamed ElBaradei will report the materialsí disappearance to the U.N. Security Council later Monday, spokeswoman Melissa Fleming told The Associated Press......

.....Nearly 380 tons of powerful explosives that could be used to build large conventional bombs are missing from the former Al Qaqaa military installation, The New York Times reported Monday. The 380 tons is the U.S. equivalent of the figure of 350 metric tons mentioned by the Iraqis, the IAEA said.

The explosives included HMX and RDX, which can be used to demolish buildings but also produce warheads for missiles and detonate nuclear weaponry, the newspaper said. It said they disappeared after the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq last year.

Seems some NBC guys were with the 101st when they got there, the stuff was already gone.

So how is this all of a sudden the US's fault for lack of security. We didn't hold that area when it disappeared!

Good try UN, think of something better next time!

doh, they're not our hands. That makes them in the wrong hands. How can you move 300+tons of that stuff undetected?

Exactly. The report NOW is that it was gone before we got there. So what was ours to protect wasn't there for us to do so, yet it's being pinned on Bush. It reeks of political sabotage, but don't let that stop anyone from trying to blame Bush for it.

Of course it's political....

We've destroyed nearly 700 THOUSAND tons of weapons, and secured another 300 THOUSAND tons.....so you do the math.

This story was released purely for political effect...

Now who would blame Bush for anything? Apparently he can do no wrong, even when he's done wrong. Just because he lied to the entire world, no one trust him anymore. Why? Give him another chance people, it was only a freaking war, geez...

I love the whole "Bush lied" crap that **bad word** spew.
Tell you what, state just one lie that Bush has told. You know, an actual lie. When one knows the full truth, yet states the opposite to intentionally mislead.
The exact things that kerry has been doing his whole life, and particularly the last few weeks at every one of his photo-ops and campaign speeches.

EDIT: Name removed. Trying to be better.
