http://www.nytimes.com/2004/10/25/international/middleeast/25bomb.html The Al Qaqaa facililty, which was monitored by the UN for years, and which the IAEA specifically warned the United States about securing, has been picked over by looters since the US invasion. 380 tons -- 760,000 pounds -- of high explosive are missing. One pound of explosive of this type was used in the Lockerbie bombing. We invaded Iraq over WMD, but we incompetely allowed high explosive materials to leak into the hands of, most likely, terrorists and insurgents. So, the next time you're asking yourself if the invasion of Iraq made the world safer, you might ask: -- How many bombings have already used materials that we should have safeguarded? -- How many terrorist killings in the future could have been prevented if the United States had taken the UN's advice and properly safeguarded that facility?
