This Is What I Came Back To?

My weekend news blackout ended with me turning on the news to find out 760,000 pounds of heavy duty Iraqi ordinance floating around out there because of a jack-off Bush administration. CNN has been putting this story at the top and almost saying "WTF?!?". I just hope a number of Americans are asking themselves the same thing.

It was a priority to get the reconstruction office up and running. It was a priority to secure the various ministries, so that we could get those ministries working on their priorities, whether it was -
Q So it was the multinational force's responsibility --
MR. McCLELLAN: There were a number of -- well, the coalition forces, there were a number of priorities at the end of Operation Iraqi Freedom.
