rummy and the morning zoo

judd legum of winning argument discusses the bizarre radio interview donald rumsfeld had recently (even more bizarre than howard stern calling up michael powell).:

us defense secretary donald rumsfeld has suggested the controversy over missing iraqi explosives will probably amount to no more than a tempest in a teapot and compared it to other oversold stories that circulated during the war.

"do you remember when the museum - everyone said the museum was looted?" mr. rumsfeld said when asked to comment on the disappearance of 380 tons of conventional high explosives from al-qaqaa military base south of baghdad.

[snip]but mr rumsfeld, in an interview with a cincinnati, ohio, radio station said that the whole story reminded him of reports about heavy looting at the iraqi national museum after the beginning of the war, which later proved to be exaggerated because many of the national treasures had been hidden before the war by museum curators.


he made clear he believed the explosives could still be located because us troops had been finding them hidden in hospitals, in schools, "all across that country, buried in some instances."
watch out! that syringe could actually be a stick of dynamite!
