A U.S. Army officer came forward today and said a team from the 3rd Infantry Division took about 200 tons of explosives from the Al-Qaqaa munitions base soon after Saddam Hussein's regime fell last year. Major Austin Pearson appeared at a Pentagon news conference to say it was his mission to go the facility and clear explosives from the base. He said he did not discover that the International Atomic Energy Agency had reported 377 tons of explosives were missing until Tuesday night and he said he promptly contacted military officials.

So, the question is, why did Kerry "rush to judgement without waiting for the military to offer their side of the story? Is this the sort of man to sit in the Oval Office - a man with such little confidence in the US Army. Time to apologise now Senator Jean Francois?
