More bad news from Iraq

Remember when General Shinseki lost his job for telling the administration that more troops were needed in Iraq than they wanted to send? Remember when Rumsfeld dismissed post-invasion looting of a Baghdad museum? As it turns out, priceless artifacts aren't all that went missing in the chaos. It's been reported that 350 tons of explosives vanished during the occupation. Why? Maybe because they were left unguarded.
