You can't lose what isn't there to start with, can you?

Didja hear about the 380 tons of explosives that were missing in Iraq? Didja hear John F-ing Kerry blame Dubya for blah-blah-woof-woof? Big screw-up, right?

Before you answer, take note that Jim Miklaszewski of NBC News pretty much dismantled the New York Times attack on behalf of Kerry today. The sauce:

NBC News: Miklaszewski: “April 10, 2003, only three weeks into the war, NBC News was embedded with troops from the Army's 101st Airborne as they temporarily take over the Al Qakaa weapons installation south of Baghdad. But these troops never found the nearly 380 tons of some of the most powerful conventional explosives, called HMX and RDX, which is now missing. The U.S. troops did find large stockpiles of more conventional weapons, but no HMX or RDX, so powerful less than a pound brought down Pan Am 103 in 1988, and can be used to trigger a nuclear weapon. In a letter this month, the Iraqi interim government told the International Atomic Energy Agency the high explosives were lost to theft and looting due to lack of security. Critics claim there were simply not enough U.S. troops to guard hundreds of weapons stockpiles, weapons now being used by insurgents and terrorists to wage a guerrilla war in Iraq.” (NBC’s “Nightly News,” 10/25/04)

For those too busy examining their own colons or waiting for Michael Moore to tell them with a bouncy, ironic soundtrack, what the above means is that Kerry's lying and the NY Times is desperate to catch up with Dan Rather on the credibility shredding front. Don't they know that Dan's been trying to catch them?

1. Scroll down to the post about whether Osama's even alive. Thank you.

B. Why didn't Clinton take him when he was offered repeatedly by the Sudanese on a silver platter after the Al Queda attacks of the 90's?

3a. Is Dubya to blame for the Yankees choking in the ALCS? Why not? C'mon, every single f*cking thing that's gone wrong in the last four years from the economy to hurricanes to Ashlee Simpson being unable to find a band that can properly cue up the backing track is Dubya's fault, so where's the ad with Steinbrenner blaming him, too?!?

3b. Are the Yankees going to move to the Philippines and rename themselves the "Manilla Folders"?

4. Why did Kerry lie about meeting the UN Security Council and lie about being in Cambodia for Xmas 1968 and lie about whether he tossed his medals or ribbons and lie about war crimes and lie about how he got that "magic hat" and lie about how he got medals when he refuses to release ALL of his records to prove once and for all that he didn't reward himself for his paper cuts?

What's most interesting about Leftist partisan sniping is how their questions totally avoid the issue at hand. This topic is about how the NY Times and MSM are providing aid to Kerry by printing lies for him to use as a demagogic springboard. NBC has reported that they were there back in the day and the explosives were already gone then, not NOW as is being implied by the coordinated media Big Lie jihad.

Even if Dubya and Osama are old poker buddies - like Michael Moore will reveal in his new film "Fat Boy Needs Bigger Pants!" - it doesn't change the fact that Kerry is a liar and the media are his willing bitch boys.

The answer to the question, "How can you lose what you never had?" is not, "Where's Osama?" Sorry, no Rice-O-Roni for you.

"Videotape shot by a Minnesota television crew traveling with U.S. troops in Iraq when they first opened the bunkers at the Al-Qaqaa munitions base nine days after the fall of Saddam Hussein shows what appeared to be high explosives still in barrels and bearing the markings of the International Atomic Energy Agency."

Don't let the truth spoil your screech party, Dirk!

According to the Pentagon press conference today, the Army may've hauled off 200-250 tons of the stuff themselves, but let's just say for the sake of argument that Dubya called up Army command and told them, "Hey, boys, I want you to just leave the stuff for anyone to come up and steal whatever they want." Even if the media assassins and their Annointed Candidate are 100% correct and this is another example of how lousy Dubya is, explain the following:

1. In a country with an estimated 1 million tons of ordinance lying around and with 400,000 tons already secured and/or destroyed, how is it being unable to account for 1/10 of 1% is considered failure?

If you got a 1598 on your SAT or a 99.9% on your final exam and received an "F", you'd be kinda upset, wouldn't you?

B. John Kerry would've left all 400,000 tons of explosives in the hands of Saddam and the terrorists by his policies of appeasement and inaction. Why is that acceptable but this loss unacceptable?

Don't let a little thing like HYPOCRISY stop your hating!!! Bring it on!!!
