Don't get spun.
AP is reporting "Spokesman for military unit at Al-Qaqaa says there was no search for explosives":
There's more on the specific dates of all this in the story, and as we've pointed out before Josh Marshall has pulled together all the math to make sense of it. His later coverage, is similarly reasoned and clear-headed. Inform yourself.
In the meantime, as I was watching Fox and listening to the other Wingnut pundits yesterday (See Edward Daley's "Al Qaqaa Bomb Cache Fraud: A New Low For Liberals" for instance), this question occured to me:
What is more important at this point?
Determining how 380 tons of some of the highest explosives known to man (just one pound of it took down Pan Am 103) has undeniably disappeared and what has happened to them?
Or investigating whether or not this may be some kind of "Dirty Trick", as O'Reilly suggested yesterday, being grandly orchestrated somehow to take down Bush in some bizarre grand conspiracy requiring the complicit cooperation of the Iraqi Interim Government, the IAEA, the U.N., The New York Times and the Democratic party?
You tell me which one of those questions should be of more concern right now.
