Whoopsie, Explosives Gone Bye Bye

Tracking the Weapons: Huge Cache of Explosives Vanished From Site in Iraq

Y'all remember when we thought they were evil but competent? When it seemed like they had a stranglehold on everything, that they were two steps of evil ahead of even our worst imaginations that's how thorough the execution of their overarching evil plan was? Those were the good ol' days, hunh? Now it is tragically apparent that these assholes are just playing at this war (and the rest of our lives) as if it were a game of Risk like a bunch of drunken, larcenous hooligans whose daddies will clean it all up for them in the morning. I've said it before here, friends, and I'll say it again: I hope to goodness that the Kerry Administration does not play the usual footsie with this administration with that boy's club/gentlemen's agreement/look the other way/my regards to your mother crap that goes on between presidents. Every single one of these assholes needs to pay for the damage they have done to human life, to the principles of democracy, to the function of government, and to the reputation of this country around the world. No less should be expected of a country and a system of government with even modest pretensions toward being just.

Ponder this for a moment:
The White House said President Bush's national security adviser, Condoleezza Rice, was informed within the past month that the explosives were missing. It is unclear whether President Bush was informed.

So, they want us to believe that 1) the National Security Advisor, Miss Condoleezza "I Don't Know" Rice, was informed "within the past month" that the explosives were missing, the explosives that, um, we went to war to make sure they didn't go missing into the hands of terrsts, and 2) it is unclear if the preznit of our country (it is ours, you know!!) has been informed about these missing weapons, cos, like, WHY WOULD THE PREZNIT NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE WHEREABOUTS OF ONE OF HIS RATIONALES FOR THIS GODFORSAKEN WAR????

Thud.

(smelling salts applied)

Right, I guess they were too busy guarding the files and ferns at the Ministry of Oil to worry about looting at the explosives warehouse that we knew about!

Thud.
