Not true! Lost from the Baghdad museum…

July 1, 2005 Comments Off on Not true! Lost from the Baghdad museum…

An insightfull story in the Guardian about what happened when the museum in Iraqi National Museum Bagdad was looted/robbed has only reached my attention now. Bit late, but better late than never.

The different stories of Mr. George as time goes along…

April 14: “And it’s gone, and it’s lost. If Marines had started [protecting the museum] before, none of this would have happened. It’s too late. It’s no use. It’s no use.”.

June 1: George was reported in the German newspaper Welt am Sonntag as reiterating that witnesses had seen US soldiers enter the museum on April 9, stay inside two hours and leave with some objects..

June 10: George is now quoted as saying that that items lost could represent “a small percentage” of the collection and blamed shoddy reporting for the exaggeration..

And all of this written by the man who said:

Above all, however, we must first avoid the one fatal error that so many have fallen into. George W Bush and his voters are not dumb. Those who think so are the really dumb ones.
