CNN is reporting that NBC News had an embedded crew with the U.S. soldiers when they arrived at the al Qaqaa weapon storage facility. The high explosives were already gone!
Once again, the NY Times is full of shit in their blatant shilling for the Kerry camp.
Not only were the explosives already gone, but here is the video to prove it, juxtaposed with a smarmy Kerry attempting to place blame, even after the facts were known.
NRO's The Corner provides more on possible motivations for the explosives story, beyond the usual domestic political battles:
- “The Iraqi explosives story is a fraud. These weapons were not there when US troops went to this site in 2003. The IAEA and its head, the anti-American Mohammed El Baradei, leaked a false letter on this issue to the media to embarrass the Bush administration. The US is trying to deny El Baradei a second term and we have been on his case for missing the Libyan nuclear weapons program and for weakness on the Iranian nuclear weapons program.”
