NPR's Alex Chadwick talks to NPR's Eric Westervelt about the reported disappearance of several tons of explosives from sealed munitions bunkers at a site north of Baghdad called al-Qaqaa. The incident has become a major issue in the waning days of the presidential campaign. A newly released video from embedded journalists in Iraq shows U.S. troops visiting the site after the fall of Saddam Hussein, and finding at least some of the seals intact.
