    the question is: are they really that inept, or is there some ulterior and nefarious purpose?

    Heck--they are Americans. I'm sure it's all of the above.

    odd...I do not automatically think ill of people simply because they are Americans - why would YOU?

    Actually, I think the contrary. I routinely give my fellow countrymen the benefit of the doubt until such time as any one of them - or group of them - has earned and richly deserved my distrust. The current administration, unfortunately, has earned just that.

    What sort of ulterior purpose would it serve? No, I think this is just another example of the gross incompetence we've come to expect from the Bush administration.

    Did you MISS the bolded sentence, or are you just doing your "willfully obtuse" routine again?

    Gotcha--Because this occurred under the Bush administration, the missing weapons HAS to be a result of ineptitude, ulterior motives or nefarious purposes.

    I suppose it might have occured due to magic or divine intervention, but, given the incredible bumbling of this administration and contrasting the zero problems occuring in Bosnia, I think that those choices are the highly probable ones, yes.

    WOW--any guesses on the "nefarious" purposes ? ( Are you sure you wanna blame Bush if some bean counter in the Pentagon misplaced a decimal point?)
