What happened to the 350 tons of missing explosives?
and furthermore what happened to the investigation and attention to this story? This is a HUGE deal and it just seems to have evaporated.

1. I'm sure it's being put to daily use in Iraq...
...by rebels and insurgents. TV news reports always seem to mention how "sophisticated" the insurgent attacks have become. I'm sure all those missing explosives have something to do with this "sophistication".

4. oh, I'm sure of that
but what happened to the story. This is appalling that NO ONE is talking about this. 350 Tons is 700,000 pounds, and that's just ONE spot, there are scores of these depots around the country that no one is guarding. Another example of Bush's failure to properly protect the troops

9. The story.
What story? That "missing explosives" story is so November 2004. Forget that. Look over here: four CBS executives were let go over the "forged documents" fiasco and--AND--Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston broke up!!! Gasp!!!

Get with the program, youngred.

2. Come on.. You know the answer
The media was told to lay off by BushCo, and they laid off.

3. It's being given back to us by the insurgents . . . a few pounds at a time
as a convoy goes past . . .

6. Down the memory hole.
It would be disloyal to the Party to bring this up again. Don't do it or you will end up in Siberia, er, Utah.

16. An Abrams tank was destroyed soon afterwards as well
It's a real indication of what they're up against in Iraq...

12. What? You expect the 'liberal' media to follow-up on a story like this?
It's truly criminal what these criminals are getting away with. They talk of millions in the food-for-oil scandal but little said of the millions (or is it billions) that Halliburton is raping our country for.

14. actually i bet many pounds of them have been used already
you other things are happening now, Brad and Jenn getting divorced, Chimpoleons coronation and the media shuffling around to get the best spot there, can't be worring about small things like 350 tons of boom boom sticks.

19. It's like every other story

20. well they're still blowing things up aren't they?
The explosives seem to be getting used almost every day in Iraq, sometimes several times a day.

The conservation movement is a breeding ground of communists
and other subversives. We intend to clean them out,
even if it means rounding up every birdwatcher in the country.
--John Mitchell, US Attorney General 1969-72
