makes a big deal of a report by NBC which claims that the explosives
had already disappeared by the time Americans invaded Iraq, but
not even the NBC News site
mentions the story today, nor do any other major media report on
the claim, except for two lead paragraphs in this CNN
which pays lip service to the NBC angle and then devotes the next
36 paragraphs to the original missing explosives story.
No Explosives When GIs Arrived is
another odd piece of reporting in that the first paragraph reports
the Pentagon claims our troops found no munitions, with grafs far
down the story reporting fruitless searches "both during and
after major combat operations" without pinning down a date.
This is a very loose report, worded in a way that reminds me of
President Clinton's issue with the word no.
Brad an idiot
You have to have some egg on your face after your rant on this
[missing explosives] yesterday.
You are to anxious to run this administration down into the dirt.
Give it time the truth will come out be it good or bad for them.
You sounded like you worked for the NY Times yesterday. (that
is not a compliment).
Now I wonder if you will devote as much energy today to correcting
the impression you made yesterday? I doubt it. This story is over
a year and a half old, I could get better and more accurate crap
from the Kerry/Edwards campaign or the DNC.
This is one reason your listeners are dwindling you have let you
personal opinions color the truth so much so that it is becoming
very distasteful to listen to. But it is your radio show and you
are the professional so keep at it,eventually it will be you yelling
into a rusty tin can with a string connecting it to another tin
can with your sole listener on the other end parroting back platitudes
of endearment to you. Maybe a slight exaggeration there but you
get the idea.

your not a half bad talk show host when you try to be, And you
used to be a hell of a newsman, what happened?
I was taken
over by the Martian pod aliens, Don.
Globe has a story
today stating that the explosives were looted AFTER the U.
S. arrived. IF they were moved before we arrived, WE had been
told exactly were this place was, and its importance by U. N.
inspectors pre invasion.
IF we were not watching this site via our satellites, which can
read a license plate, before we invaded we certainly should have
been. And IF we were we could have followed via satellite where
they were taken. AFTER we invaded we most probably discontinued
satellite monitoring of the place "thinking" it no longer
necessary to monitor.
