Matt Drudge notes an NBC News story that the 380 tons of explosives (registration) reported missing from Al Qaqaa ammo dump in Iraq was missing when U.S. troops arrived on April, 10 2003. Isn't that the whole point of the New York Times story from Monday?
The Bush administration had all sorts of intelligence about so-called "weapons of mass destruction." Colin Powell went to the UN to put on an elaborate display of grainy photographs of weapons facilities and artists' renderings of mobile biological-weapons labs; none of which was found.
In their zeal to find "WMD," couldn't the Bush administration paid a bit more attention to the whereabouts of these convential explosives; which UN inspectors inventoried in January, 2003 and may be reponsible for the deaths of hundreds of Americans and thousands of Iraqis? Or am I missing something?
