More On The Explosives

The Command Post has two stories about the explosives today:

Did The Russians Take The Missing Explosives?
Iraqis May Have Overstated Amount Of Missing Explosives


And more from Drudge:

GERTZ // THURSDAY // WASH TIMES: Russian special forces troops moved many of Saddam Hussein's weapons and related goods out of Iraq and into Syria in the weeks before the March 2003 U.S. military operation, The Washington Times has learned. John A. Shaw, the deputy undersecretary of defense for international technology security, said in an interview that he believes the Russian troops, working with Iraqi intelligence, “almost certainly” removed the high-explosive material that went missing from the Al-Qaqaa facility, south of Baghdad.
What? Oh my heavens! You mean to tell me that weapons might have been moved from Iraq to Syria before we got there? Jeeze, I wonder how they had time to do that.

The Gertz article (Don't be lazy...read the whole thing, you won't be disappointed):

A second defense official said documents on the Russian support to Iraq reveal that Saddam's government paid the Kremlin for the special forces to provide security for Iraq's Russian arms and to conduct counterintelligence activities designed to prevent U.S. and Western intelligence services from learning about the arms pipeline through Syria.


Mr. Shaw said he believes that the withdrawal of Russian-made weapons and explosives from Iraq was part of plan by Saddam to set up a "redoubt" in Syria that could be used as a base for launching pro-Saddam insurgency operations in Iraq.


Documents reviewed by the official included itineraries of military units involved in the truck shipments to Syria. The materials outlined in the documents included missile components, MiG jet parts, tank parts and chemicals used to make chemical weapons, the official said.
With friends like these...

I hope this happens soon:

Defense officials said the Russians can provide information on what happened to the Iraqi weapons and explosives that were transported out of the country. Officials believe the Russians also can explain what happened to Iraq's weapons of mass destruction programs.
So all of this time, with all the crap Bush has had to put up with, it's Vlady Putin who's been stabbing us in the back. Truly disappointing.

Oh, and do I even need to mention that Kerry’s plan of let the sanctions work has now been proven to be a loser? How could they have worked when one of our strongest ‘allies’ is in bed with the enemy?
