Joseph Biden on the Explosives

Sen. Joseph Biden on losing hundreds of tons of high explosives, via Norwegianity:

"Let me remind you, Rumsfeld started off the bid saying we only needed 40,000 troops going in, CENTCOM said 380, they agreed to 250, they sent 140. You had [Gen.] Abizaid testifying last year in the United States Senate, and I quote, 'There is more ammunition in Iraq than anyplace I've ever been in my life and it's not securable, I wish I could tell you we had it all under control, we don't.' He went on to say there is certainly not enough forces anywhere to guard this ammunition in Iraq...

"Because of these god awful mistakes that the civilians in this Administration keep making, the bar that John Kerry is going to have to go over to make this right again, is going to be incredibly difficult. But I think he has the guts and the gumptions to do what has to be done, and to make it clear to our allies that 'Look you don't have George Bush's incompetence to deal with anymore, you can't fend of your responsibility by saying there's no plan. Here's a plan, I need your help, you need to get involved in it.' But is it going to be hard, very, very hard."
