Bush's Excuse on Explosives Deemed "Impossible"

If someone tries to tell you that those 380 tons of high explosives went missing before the invasion, keep this in mind:

+Iraq says ‘impossible’ explosives taken before regime fall+

“It is impossible that these materials could have been taken from this site before the regime’s fall,” said Mohammed al-Sharaa, who heads the science ministry’s site monitoring department and previously worked with UN weapons inspectors under Saddam.

“The officials that were inside this facility (Al-Qaqaa) beforehand confirm that not even a shred of paper left it before the fall and I spoke to them about it and they even issued certified statements to this effect which the US-led coalition was aware of.”

Sharaa goes on to say that more sites may have been plundered and are now in the hands of bandits.

The administration seems to be scrambling to get their info from NBC and other news outlets… why is that? Do they have to watch TV like the rest of us to tell what happened during the invasion? There are people issuing certified statements that the explosives were there. They disappeared. Did we get their too late? Where are the administration officials issuing their own statements?

No that's not it, they just want to know what we know, so as to form the most plausible lies.

It makes me ill that Bush is now accusing Kerry of rushing to judgement without having the facts and asking "Do we want a President like that?" Have you looked in a mirror lately, monkey-boy?!?
