The Times' exploding cigar!

Trouble is, had the U.N., The Times, Team Kerry and Ms. Flatt checked a little closer - taking a lesson from Dan Rather and 60 Minutes - they would have realized, as reported by NBC News


last night, that the explosives had apparently disappeared from the facility before the U.S. invasion. In fact, NBC reported that the explosives were already missing from Hussein's Al-Qaqaa military installation before April 10, 2003, when U.S. troops arrived at the facility south of Baghdad. How did NBC News know? Because it had a crew "embedded" with our troops when they moved in to secure the Al-Qaqaa weapons facility on April 10, 2003, one day after the liberation of Iraq. Ummmm... attention Bush-bashers, that was news back in 2003.

So when it was apparent that, as of April 10, 2003, the explosives in question were already gone from the facility, and thus there could have been no prior opportunity to guard or bungle the guarding of the facility, why is the story desperate, urgent, breaking news on Monday?

Ya think it could be because April 10, 2003 was 572 days away from Election Day, while Monday was only 8 days away and that the voters' memories are short?

Nah. That would be too cynical a guess.
