Report: Explosives could not be found when U.S. troops arrived

CNN) -- The mystery surrounding the disappearance of 380 tons of powerful explosives from a storage depot in Iraq has taken a new twist, after a television news crew embedded with the U.S. military during the invasion of Iraq reported that the material could not be found when American troops arrived.

NBC News reported that on April 10, 2003, its crew was embedded with the U.S. Army's 101st Airborne Division when troops arrived at the Al Qaqaa storage facility south of Baghdad.

While the troops found large stockpiles of conventional explosives, they did not find HMX or RDX, the types of powerful explosives that reportedly went missing, according to NBC.

The International Atomic Energy Agency revealed Monday that it had been told two weeks ago by the Iraqi government that 380 tons of HMX and RDX disappeared from Al Qaqaa after Saddam Hussein's government fell.

The Dems are making commercials about the missing explosives as we speak (per Rush). They plan on running them in battleground states later this week. By then the lie will be mostly known throughout the country. They need to go to plan B.

The New York Times and 60 minutes conspire to lie about our troops in Iraq and their failure to secure munitions that were long gone before their arrival according to an NBC reporter who was there at the time.

John Kerry... tell any lie... win at any cost..."

Alas, not likely to happen



Awesome outline for an ad. You should forward it to the DNC etc.

We could start an Arfkom 527, popularize it and raise money through blog ads, get it on the air.

A little late in the game to do that though.

Why would I send it to the DNC?
