Seriously, is this man insane?
WASHINGTON - Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld suggested Thursday that the removal of 377 tons of explosives from an Iraqi munitions base probably took place before U.S. forces arrived, saying any large effort to loot the material afterward would have been detected.
[No one would have seen 377 tons of explosives being moved before the invasion, of course. Between Jan. 2003 when the IAEA sealed the facility and March the U.S. wasn't watching. Certainly they wouldn't have noticed hundreds of trucks kicking up a bunch of dust, right?]
"We would have seen anything like that," he said in one of two radio interviews he gave Thursday at the Pentagon. "The idea it was suddenly looted and moved out, all of these tons of equipment, I think is at least debatable."
[Oh, by the way, that report about ABC seeing the munitions after the invasion is just an illusion.]
