350 TONS - the Buck stops where?

By Remy Benoit

The media is reporting on the missing 350 TONS of conventional explosives that were under the control of the International Atomic Energy Agency until the invasion of Iraq.

On October 10, 2004 the IAEA was told by the Iraqi Ministry of Science and Technology that these explosives were missing.

This is October 25th. Reporters broke the story; it was not told by those whose responsibility it is to guard it and to safeguard the world.

Accountability is called for. Not campaign platitudes, not mud slinging, but the thing that all the rest of us answer to - accountability at the highest levels.

From AEA: Tons of Iraq explosives missing.

From the AP and 350 Tons of Explosives Missing in Iraq.
