Army destroyed explosives at al Qaqaa

Fox News:

A U.S. Army officer came forward Friday and said a team from the 3rd Infantry Division took about 200 tons of explosives from the Al-Qaqaa (search) munitions base soon after Saddam Hussein's regime fell last year.

Major Austin Pearson appeared at a Pentagon news conference to say it was his mission to go the facility and clear explosives from the base. He said he did not discover that the International Atomic Energy Agency (search) had reported 377 tons of explosives were missing until Tuesday night and he said he promptly contacted military officials.
