I just sent this feedback to CNN and wanted to post it here as well. Note, it seems that the figure concerning the missing explosives has been revised to 360 tons. That's still a big bang.
I just caught the tail end of the Larry King shown this evening but had to comment on the point made by a guest. The issue was concerning the 380 tons of missing weapons in Iraq and the guest (I didn't catch the name) was trying to tell Reverend Al Sharpton that the Democrats were making a big deal about the weapons of mass destruction not being found in Iraq, and what did Reverend Sharpton think that these missing explosives were? Did they not amount to WMDs?
Well, the real problem here is that Republicans continually try to obfuscate the WMD issue when clearly it is a problem and was the basis for the justification of the invasion of Iraq in the first place. The point is that 380 tons of missing explosives are just that, conventional explosives, nothing more. Weapons of mass destruction are by definition chemical, biological or nuclear in nature.
Everyone who supports Mr. Bush needs to keep that in mind when comparisons between the missing weapons and WMDs are made, because they are not one in the same.
