"Bush's misbegotten invasion of Iraq appears to have achieved what Saddam did not: putting dangerous weapons in the hands of terrorists and creating an offshoot of Al Qaeda in Iraq. Iraqi and American officials cannot explain how some 760,000 pounds of explosives were spirited away from a well-known site just 30 miles from Baghdad. But they were warned. Within weeks of the invasion, international weapons inspectors told Washington that the explosives depot was in danger and that terrorists could help themselves "to the greatest explosives bonanza in history." - New York Times Editorial
