This just in: I heard a director of antiquities in Baghdad about how the museum was tumbled ... he sez Powell promised "armoured cars" at the doors ... but there were naught.
Rumsfeld should be fired for incompetence; Franks should be demoted; "Jay" should have his feet put to the fire.
The Secretary of State of the United States of America was sand-bagged by administration fascists; as a consequence, billions of dollars of antiquities were stolen or trashed, tens of thousands of items representing six millenia of historty. Business as usua for whom?
No-one subject to the Eagle Empire has any reason to rest easy ... even its administrators do no know security ... like Kruschev under Stalin.
