Check out the top story in today's New York Times: "Huge Cache of Explosives Vanished From Site in Iraq" (registration required, but you can go to bugmenot.com to get a login if you don't have one and don't want to register)

Highlights:

The huge facility, called Al Qaqaa, was supposed to be under American military control but is now a no man's land, still picked over by looters as recently as Sunday. United Nations weapons inspectors had monitored the explosives for many years, but White House and Pentagon officials acknowledge that the explosives vanished sometime after the American-led invasion last year.
...
After the invasion, when widespread looting began in Iraq, the international weapons experts grew concerned that the Qaqaa stockpile could fall into unfriendly hands. In May, an internal I.A.E.A. memorandum warned that terrorists might be helping "themselves to the greatest explosives bonanza in history."


Well, it's a good thing we invaded Iraq and made the world safer, isn't it?
