The Failed October Surprise: President Didn't Bumble

The hopes of John Kerry's most recent October surprise are dashed. The politics of fear Bill Clinton claimed President Bush is using to get elected turns out to be the urgent words of a sentry on guard.

It turns out after all that missing explosives in Iraq were given away to someone by Saddam Hussein's government to someone we don't know of yet. Could the car bombs around Iraq be detonated by these very explosive our "bumbling administration" couldn't guard properly.
"NBCNEWS reported: The 380 tons of powerful conventional explosives were already missing back in April 10, 2003 -- when U.S. troops arrived at the installation south of Baghdad!

An NBCNEWS crew embedded with troops moved in to secure the Al-Qaqaa weapons facility on April 10, 2003, one day after the liberation of Iraq. According to NBCNEWS, the HMX and RDX explosives were already missing when the American troops arrived.

'The U.S. Army was at the site one day after the liberation and the weapons were already gone,' a top Republican blasted from Washington late Monday. "

When I write a story too quickly making confident assertions without complete evidence, that's a mistake. When John Kerry makes a statement like this without investigating the facts:
"This is one of the great blunders of Iraq, one of the great blunders of this administration"

. . . it proves that he does not have the calm resolve and measured response necessary of a Commander in Chief and leader of the Free World.
