Missing Explosives

Kerry- Bush responsible for missing explosives.
Bush- Wild accusations.
Pentagon- Removal occurred before the invasion. Shows picture of a couple of trucks around the Al-Qaqaa complex.

Reality: April 18, nine days after the fall of Baghdad, embedded NWCN reporter Dean Staley travelled to an area said to be the Al-Qaqaa storage facilty. Videotape was taken of complex. Inside the bunkers there was crate after crate of material marked "explosive." Barrels seen in the video contain the high explosive HMX, and U.N. markings on the sealed containers were clear.

"Videotape appears identical to photographs that the inspectors took of the missing explosives."
"Once the doors to the bunkers were opened, they weren't secured."
"The soldiers were pretty much in awe of what they were seeing."

Joe Caffrey, photojournalist: "It would have been easy for anybody to get in."

    Faith over reason. The country motto is "In God we trust" not "In reason we trust" Its going to get real scary for the Reason and fact based community if the Armies of faith get 4 more years. Take a look at "Without a Doubt" By RON SUSKIND NYT Magazine. Really gets to the heart of the problem within this administration and the faithful who follow.

    Reality's changing. Don't jump too quick at the prospect of looking foolish.

    Haven't seen any change.

    David Kay: "The damning thing is the seals. The Iraqis didn't use seals on anything. So I'm absolutely sure that's an IAEA seal."

    "U.S. defense officials acknowledge that the (satellite) photo does not prove the explosives were being moved."- CNN
