Mayor of America, My Ass

Yeah, the Repugnicans love the troops. That's why they fabricate imminent threats and then don't provide enough armor, reinforcements, or post-combat support (like, oh, health benefits, for instance). Oh, and they piss off worried soldier moms with weaselly statements like this:

''No matter how you try to blame it on the president, the actual responsibility for it really would be for the troops that were there. Did they search carefully enough? Didn't they search carefully enough?'' he said on NBC's ''Today'' show.

Wow. What an asshole.

That said, roolllll tape! Looks like embeds are actually good for something, like showing that we were in control of the al Qaqaa facility
on April 18. Man, this administration never ceases to amaze, so catastrophically successful is its management by mental midgets.

Or......did our troops blow them up? Well, they blew up some portion of explosives, but they cannot state definitively that what they blew up was this same contested 377 tons of explosives. Sigh.

These administration weasels are so craven that they will say anything. Remember when the first answer was, Kerry is jumping to conclusions! And then came, Saddam moved them before we got there -- look! satellite photos! And then came, Haha, we told you there were WMD there! And then came, It's the soldiers' fault! (Screw you, Giuliani. -- Decency Ed.) Well, the article did have this to say:

Diplomats have said the IAEA cautioned the United States about the danger of the explosives before the war, and after the invasion told U.S. officials of the need to safeguard them. The explosives can be used in making conventional bombs and as a trigger in a nuclear detonation.

At issue is whether the material fell into the hands of U.S. enemies because the Pentagon failed to secure the site.

Yes, Pentagon/administration incompetence is the issue. Yes. Thanks for saying it. Why is that so hard?
