The Latest Salvo...

… in The New York Times’ “War to Unseat George Bush” (it can be seen as nothing else) is the ‘sudden’ report of 380 tons of missing explosives in Iraq, immediately seized upon by the Kerry Campaign as yet another example of Bush’s ineptitude.

But is the Times’ report all based on a timeline error? Captain’s Quarters thinks so. Will the Times respond to this? Not likely, unless the blogosphere forces them. But even then the damage may have been done.

UPDATE: Apropos the 380 missing tons of explosives “suddenly” reported by the NYT, evidently it had been reported months before that the Army Corps of Engineers had already destroyed 248,000 tons of weaponry in Iraq. If there’s anyone who still thinks the mainstream media is anything more than propaganda organ (cum lifestyle guide) read this.
