how 'bout my local news (who knew)



Channel 5 broke this story? I may need to start watching local news again.

Holy crap. My local ABC affiliate in Mpls has blown apart the right-wing "I didn't do it" response to the al Qaqaa explosives scandal. As I first heard mentioned on today's Morning Sedition, KSTP reporters embedded in Iraq were shown the al Qaqaa complex in mid-April 2003, and the explosives were still there. And they were left unsecured. And there's video footage.

The White House (and Drudge) has been spinning the "they were already gone" theory for the last couple of days, but now that isn't going to fly. Of course, Kos, Atrios & Josh Marshall are running with the latest development in this story, which so clearly defines the Bushies' incompetence during this whole Iraq debacle. Will they ever take responsibility for anything?

This is dominating the news in the final week of the campaign - and it's not going away. So, how is Bush going to excuse his way out of this one?

Oh yeah, & "America's mayor" Giuliani is blaming the troops (via Atrios).

ETA: I guess this story may actually go away. Can you believe this sh**?



Shouldn't this guy already be dead, not making new videos? (10.29.04)

Hey, very nice site. I came across this on Google, and I am stoked that I did. I will definitely be coming back here more often. Wish I could add to the conversation and bring a bit more to the table, but am just taking in as much info as I can at the moment. Thanks for sharing.
