Only three tons?

I heard a brief news item on the radio this morning that ABC and Fox News are reporting that it may have been only three tons of explosives that disappeared from Al-Qaqaa--not 380 tons.

Here's the story from ABC:

The information on which the Iraqi Science Ministry based an Oct. 10 memo in which it reported that 377 tons of RDX explosives were missing — presumably stolen due to a lack of security — was based on "declaration" from July 15, 2002. At that time, the Iraqis said there were 141 tons of RDX explosives at the facility.

But the confidential IAEA documents obtained by ABC News show that on Jan. 14, 2003, the agency's inspectors recorded that just over three tons of RDX were stored at the facility — a considerable discrepancy from what the Iraqis reported.

Let's see what figure John Kerry will be using as he continues to blame George Bush for losing weapons that Kerry has insisted didn't even exist in Iraq.

A desperate candidate collaborating with a desperate media in collusion with the foreign head of an international agency that wants to bring down this administration.

There had better be some severe punishments meted out.
