Huge Cache of Explosives Vanished From Site in Iraq

The NY Times has lead the way, for the most part, in reporting on the tons of missing explosives from the Al Qaqaa military depot in Iraq. Here's the article that broke the story and here's another one on the political fallout from this news.

Josh Marshall has been posting a lot on this, while Mousemusings is offering up some additional context and a useful timeline on this story, linking it with past reports of the looting of nuclear sites and the general postwar chaos.

Lastly, see Juan Cole on the question of whether Bush is making us safer.
