Kerry & Company trickery
by Mark Neckameyer


October 27, 2004

The story about hundreds of tons of missing explosives in Iraq, blaming President Bush and our military commanders for the loss is hogwash!  An NBCNEWS crew embedded with troops moved in to secure the Al-Qaqaa weapons facility on April 10, 2003, one day after the liberation of Iraq.  According to NBC NEWS, the explosives were already missing when the American troops arrived.  Who knows where they went!  They were never in our control.  Had we begun the war sooner, if the French and Germans had not slowed things up to maximize their take from the UN's Oil for Food program, perhaps we would have taken this ammo dump out.  Now the good are likely in Syria or in the hands of terrorists.  Thank you France and Germany!
This is a non-story except that it is another example of John Kerry & Company trickery, trying to deceive American voters.  This is a desperate, despicable example of an "October surprise" at its worst.  The Swiftboat Vets say, "How could we respect John Kerry now?" ... Amen!
