Proof emerges that explosives existed during U.S. occupation

NWCN anchor saw Iraq explosives after invasion

SEATTLE – Did explosives at Al-Qaqaa, a giant weapons storage area south of Baghdad, disappear before or after the fall of Iraq's capital city? Northwest Cable News anchor Dean Staley was an eyewitness to what was happening in that area at the time in question.
Videotape shot by a photographer accompanying Staley, then a reporter at KSTP-TV in Minnesota and embedded with the U.S. Army's 101st Airborne Division in Iraq, is the latest revelation to surface in the explosives controversy.
The tape, portions of which were also broadcast nationwide Thursday evening by ABC News, appear to confirm suspicions reported earlier this month to the International Atomic Energy Agency by Iraqi officials, who said that hundreds of tons of high-grade explosives, powerful enough to bring down buildings or detonate nuclear weapons, had vanished from the Al-Qaqaa site after the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq.
