Who writes this crap!

Seriously, who writes this stuff! This is a cnn online report regarding the missing explosives. The report highlights a NBC embedded report that stated that the 380 tons of explosives, in Al Qaqaa, that were sealed and under the control of the International Atomic Energy Agency went missing before we were able to reach them. Read the following passage and see if you could make the connection that this CNN "reporter" failed to make.

"Prior to the Iraq war, the high-grade explosives at Al Qaqaa had been under the control of IAEA inspectors because the material could be used as a component in a nuclear weapon, IAEA spokeswoman Melissa Fleming said. IAEA and other U.N. inspectors left the country in March 2003 before the fighting began on March 19."

The rest of the article is slanted towards the Bush administration and their attempts to place the blame elsewhere, because they never make mistakes. Shouldn't this supposed "reporter" at least bring the other side of the argument to the table? Shouldn't he/she have the duty to present all sides of a story? Wouldn't he/she have done this if the media was really liberal?

For those of you who may not be able to make the connection here it is:
The connection that is not pointed out in this article is the fact that prior to our invasion this weapons stockpile was sealed and under control. When we decided to pre-emptively invade the IAEA inspectors had to leave, thus leaving the weapons for anyone who wanted to take them.
