    maybe not, but we might be if Kerry is elected.

    I wish some news station would start playing the complete Al Queda type.

    I just read the same story on MSNBC. The news media was filming a story and caught a shot of the bunker. This looks like it refutes arguments made by the Bushies that the weapons disappeared before we got there. This is just one moe in a long string of screw-ups by the Bush administration in Iraq.

    Here's the MSNBC link:

    According to the MSNBC story, IAEA has confirmed that the materials were their as of April 2003, when another site was looted. This would directly refute Bush adminstration claims that the weapons were gone before troops arrived. IAEA reports to the UN Security council directly.

    ...not exactly - IAEA confirmed their SEALS were there...or what looked like their seals. Big Difference.

    IAEA stated they sealed the weapons there before the war started. Beyond that, they don't know what happened. They warned the U.S. on April 10, 2003 of the Al Qaqaa site after another site was looted that day. Clearly, regardless of this site, security of munitions that U.S. was supposed to be overseeing has been a repeated problem.

    I wish the left wing Dems would stop trying to convince the population to eject Bush from
    office based on errors that occur in war and focus on why Kerry is better for the Country.

    On second thought, I guess if they could do that, they would. Wouldn't they?
