I’m now watching the Pentagon press conference with Major Austin Pearson. Watching the press ask questions about weapons is just funny as they have ZERO idea what they are talking about. It’s also sad to watch them try and trick Major Pearson. They clearly have an agenda to help Senator Kerry and make this a bigger issue than it really is. My take is that do you trust the IAEA or our folks in the military. It looks like our guys took many of the weapons out and destroyed them (that’s good policy). Our military guys did there job. Is it the fault of the Bush administration if weapons were removed before the war? Is it possible that looters were able to remove tons of explosives?
Kerry has staked the last week of the election on the premise that the Bush administration is at fault for losing 377 tons of high level explosives to looters. Now, it looks like that did not happen. Looters may have gotten a small portion of the material but that’s about it. What will Kerry do now? I’m predicting they are digging into the life of Major Austin Peason right now and will do what they can to discredit him.
