    Default 380 tons of high explosives missing

    XXXXX DRUDGE REPORT XXXXX TUE OCT 26 2004 11:02:38 ET XXXXX

    In 1992 it was the Iran Contra charges brought days before the election... In 2000 it was the DUI charges a few days before the vote... And Now...

    60 MINS PLANNED BUSH MISSING EXPLOSIVES STORY FOR ELECTION EVE

    News of missing explosives in Iraq -- first reported in April 2003 -- was being resurrected for a 60 MINUTES election eve broadcast designed to knock the Bush administration into a crisis mode.

    Jeff Fager, executive producer of the Sunday edition of 60 MINUTES, said in a statement that "our plan was to run the story on October 31, but it became clear that it wouldn't hold..."

    Elizabeth Jensen at the LOS ANGELES TIMES details on Tuesday how CBS NEWS and 60 MINUTES lost the story [which repackaged previously reported information on a large cache of explosives missing in Iraq, first published and broadcast in 2003].

    The story instead debuted in the NYT. The paper slugged the story about missing explosives from April 2003 as "exclusive."

    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 explosives were already missing when the American troops arrived.

    It is not clear who exactly shopped an election eve repackaging of the missing explosives story.

    The LA TIMES claims: The source on the story first went to 60 MINUTES but also expressed interest in working with the NY TIMES... "The tip was received last Wednesday."

    CBSNEWS' plan to unleash the story just 24 hours before election day had one senior Bush official outraged.

    "Darn, I wanted to see the forged documents to show how this was somehow covered up," the Bush source, who asked not to be named, mocked, recalling last months CBS airing of fraudulent Bush national guard letters.

    These morons keep shoothing themselves in the foot. I love it. First they forge documents... Busted. Now they take the weapons dump that was empty when we found it OVER A YEAR A GO and make it sound like it was full yesterday and empty today. Do these jackasses really think no one would figure out these lies?

    They don't care. All they want to do is influence the lemmings that base their voting decision on a headline or 30 second sound bite.

    Sad thing is it works.

    Default Then let's try the truth!

    If that's what the lemmings want then lets at least give them the truth!

    "UN ambassadors from several nations are disputing assertions by...John Kerry that he met for hours with all members of the UN Security Council just a week before voting in October 2002 to authorize the use of force in Iraq. An investigation by The Washington Times reveals that while the candidate did talk for an unspecified period to at least a few members of the panel, no such meeting, as described by Mr. Kerry on a number of occasions over the past year, ever occurred. At the second presidential debate...Mr. Kerry said he was more attuned to international concerns on Iraq than President Bush, citing his meeting with the entire Security Council. 'This president hasn't listened. I went to meet with the members of the Security Council in the week before we voted. I went to New York. I talked to all of them, to find out how serious they were about really holding Saddam Hussein accountable.' ... But of the five ambassadors on the Security Council in 2002 who were reached directly for comment, four said they had never met Mr. Kerry. The four also said that no one who worked for their countries' UN missions had met with Mr. Kerry either. ... When reached for comment last week, an official with the Kerry campaign stood by the candidate's previous claims that he had met with the entire Security Council. ... Asked whether the international body had any records of Mr. Kerry sitting down with the whole council, a UN spokesman said that 'our office does not have any record of this meeting.' A U.S. official with intimate knowledge of the Security Council's actions in fall of 2002 said that he was not aware of any meeting Mr. Kerry had with members of the panel. An official at the U.S. mission to the United Nations remarked: 'We were as surprised as anyone when Kerry started talking about a meeting with the Security Council.' ... The revelation that Mr. Kerry never met with the entire UN Security Council could be problematic for the Massachusetts senator, as it clashes with one of his central foreign-policy campaign themes -- honesty." --The Washington Times

    It's easy to say that the President isn't telling the truth, but then when caught in a lie, who is it that doesn't want to say that he was wrong....another assertion that Senator Kerry likes to make about our President.

    But they still wonder several things about citizens in teh US:

    1) Why do many think thte media is biased?

    2) Why their viewership is falling?

    3) Why their readership is falling?

    4) Why no one trusts them?

    5) Why do people feel that they are out of touch?

    6) Why doon't a lot of people think that they really are the "mainstream" press?

    The things that make ya go hmmmmmmm.

    I wonder if Kerry and the "Main Stream" media will give the 3d and the 101st the credit for destroying 400,000 tons of explosives..

    The best argument I have heard yet to banish all liberals from political office was Bob Kerrey on Sunday's Meet the Press. He said that if the US had not invaded Iraq, the "explosives" would not be in the hands of terrorists. Tim Russert laughed and asked "Isn't Saddam Hussein a terrorist?" Kerrey then said "No. He is an enemy of the US but he is not a terrorist".

    Oh my God!

    "No. He is an enemy of the US but he is not a terrorist".
    He's doing a bit of hallucination. If you support terrorism then you are no different than the dirtbag hijacking, blowing up, or dreaming up the stuff.
