The FBI investigation is not going to hurt the president. He can ignore that.

Giuliani did not blame the troops for the "400 tons of missing explosives." He did, however, say that the forces on the ground were responsible for securing that type of stuff. His point being that when Kerry tries to pin the incompetent label on the president, he is actually doing so to the troops. It made sense to me.

I can't attest to the body count estimate - but I think a relatively small group of insurrectionists are killing a lot of Iraqis. Because those terrorists need to be eliminated, it is certainly not a reason to vote for Kerry.
