Alright so you're in the newsroom decided how to frame this story and you have two choices...
Report that 380 tons of nuclear grade explosives dissappeared because the U.S troops did not secure them. We will have to accept that the insurgents had access to semi trailers, had built side roads to go around US troops and had stealth technology that stopped our overflights and satelites from seeing them.
Sometime in the leadup to the War, Saddam duped the U.N. inspectors with bogus stickers or moved them after the inspectors were gone. The U.S. got there too late. We will have to accept that Saddam could fool the U.N. and we will have to assume that our soldiers would make it a priority to search and secure a known weapons site.
They chose to guve the benefit of the doubt to Saddam, terrorists and the U.N. rather than their own American troops...
This was an attempt to remove the people's right to choose an elected leader and install and anti-war commander in chief.
Damn the torpedoes full speed ahead !!
The Ghost of Dan Rather Rides Again......
I prefer the creative fiction of scrappleface.com to that of the front page of the NYT.
You are exactly right. This is an attempt to sway a presidential election through a conspiratorial concoction of phony "information" planned and executed by the UN, The IAEA, with the NYT and CBS news acting merely as the propaganda arm of the DNC/Kerry campaign. They know not how close to Civil War II they tread.
