Middle East - AP Spokesman: Unit Didn't Search Al-Qaqaa 2 hours, 18 minutes ago? Middle East - AP By KIMBERLY HEFLING, Associated Press Writer A U.S. military unit that reached a munitions storage installation after the invasion of Iraq (news - web sites) had no orders to search or secure the site, where officials say nearly 400 tons of explosives have vanished. Looters were already throughout the Al-Qaqaa installation south of Baghdad when troops from the 101st Airborne Division's 2nd Brigade arrived at the site a day or so after other coalition troops seized the capital on April 9, 2003, Lt. Col. Fred Wellman, deputy public affairs officer for the unit, told The Associated Press..... The 101st Airborne was at least the second military unit to arrive at Al-Qaqaa after the U.S.-led invasion began. Pentagon (news - web sites) spokesman Bryan Whitman said the 3rd Infantry Division reached the site around April 3, fought with Iraq forces and occupied the site. It left after two days for Baghdad. http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=stor...ea/iraq_weapons :lol Maybe tonyi should ask Col. Fred Wellman how looters could have done it! Oh, and the good news for Kerry..this is still in the news and wont go away for Bush. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
