The plot thickens.
Didn't anybody ever tell these people that when you lie, you should keep it as close to the truth as possible.
I can find no reference to the NBC News report that CNN reports (!) on NBC's web site. NBC's report about the weapons find doesn't mention the embedded crew.
A cursory reading of the CNN report, makes it plain times, dates and purported facts don't match up or make sense. NBC's isn't much better.
CNN claims the weapons were known to be there as late as January 2003 when the site was inspected. From NBC it's March 2003. According to CNN, they're gone the day after Baghdad fell when US troops got there with the NBC crew NBC doesn't know about. The Al Qa qaa facility is described as massive, well known. The UN Security Council of which the US is a member had seen the public IAEA reports about the joint and its contents.
So it makes sense that US troops would go looking there for weapons. It doesn't make sense that the US government didn't then hear about these weapons that were supposedly missing since before the "end" of the war until October this year.
The glaring inconsistencies go on and on. I can't be bothered. The whole thing is absurd. Americans including the armed forces should be on the streets by the millions. They should find Bush and his cronies, strip them naked, humiliate and taunt them until they cry like babies. This isn't a job for democracy. This is a job for mob rule.
