The campaign controversy over high explosives missing in Iraq intensified on Wednesday as President George W. Bush accused John Kerry of making “wild charges”, while a senior Pentagon official claimed that Russian troops might have been involved in removing the munitions.


Mr Kerry told a rally in Iowa on Wednesday that Mr Bush had allowed 350 tonnes of explosives to fall into the hands of the insurgents, even as his campaign conceded that the former regime of Saddam Hussein might have removed them before the invasion.

The Pentagon is investigating what happened to the explosives, which the International Atomic Energy Agency said this week had disappeared from a former Iraqi weapons depot. Mr Bush said the explosives might have been removed before US troops arrived at the al-Qaqaa site.

Politically, the damage has been done. What do they care if it were a lie. They knew they didn't have the facts when they ran with it.

Hopefully we will see some blow back from this. Doubtful with the MSM.
