Where, Oh, Where Has My Little Bomb Gone?

Explosives madness! In Michigan yesterday, Shrub got all testy about those pesky missing munitions. According to the NYT:

President Bush broke his silence on Wednesday on the disappearance of 380 tons of explosives in Iraq, accusing Senator John Kerry of making "wild charges" about the missing explosives and of "denigrating the actions'' of troops in the field.

Mr. Kerry quickly responded that while "our troops are doing a heroic job, the president, the commander in chief, is not doing his job."

And good ol' Rudy G chimed in on the Today show with:

"No matter how you try to blame it on the President, the actual responsibility for it should be on the troops that were there. Did they search carefully enough?"

"John Kerry wants to pretend we do know what happened. We don't know what happened. The best possibility is that those explosives were gone even before the troops got there … at least it's an equal possibility. John Kerry hasn't admitted that. Instead, John Kerry became an attack dog."

Smooth move, Ex-Lax. Who's denigrating the troops, now?

Meanwhile, The Little Station That Could out of Minneapolis seems to have dug up some footage that shows the 101st Airborne Division finding explosives - possibly these very ones - early in the game and leaving them unguarded.

Ruh-roh, George.

Were those darn troops just sleeping on the job again? Perhaps Sgt. Bilko sold those things off to pay off some gambling debts. All we know is, the President and his administration had nothing to do with it. Just like it was a few bad apples that caused all that trouble up in Abu Graihb.

Just when I think I'm out, they pull me back IN...

P.S.: The good news is, I finally think I know what I'm going to be for Halloween...
