A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

Lack of security: Over at National Review's The Corner, John J. Miller points out this story from The Washington POst about a rash of items missing from the National Archives -- it turns out the movie "National Treasure" isn't so far-fetched.


Hundreds of letters and photographs are missing from the National Archives and its regional offices, including one presidential library. Many are suspected stolen.

The extent of the losses is detailed in a series of reports from the organization's investigative office, but the value of the items is difficult to determine because that is largely measured by historic importance and rarity. The items include color photographs of Nancy Reagan and the king and queen of Jordan, letters from Confederate President Jefferson Davis, and a stately portrait of Franklin D. Roosevelt.

At one time, three letters written during the Civil War by Gen. Ulysses S. Grant were missing from the National Archives. Only one has been recovered.


Of course, my first thought after reading the article was: Has anyone checked Sandy Berger's pants?

Comments:
We're sorry, Mr. Berger's pants are at the tailor's getting "let out."

PIERCING TO THE TRUTH: The Tehran Times reports that Al Jazeera is actually a Zionist plot to make Arabs and Islam look bad:


But the actions of the network gradually revealed the fact that Al-Jazeera officials, on the orders of Zionist agents, are trying to divide Islamic countries and tarnish the image of Islam. . . .

By broadcasting abhorrent scenes of the beheadings of foreign hostages by the criminal agents of the Abu Musab al-Zarqawi terrorist group, the network succeeded in increasing anti-Muslim sentiment throughout the world, particularly in the West.


It's hard to argue with that. (Via Right-thinking).

Maybe the thefts are due to Rumsfeld's failure to plan for post-Saddam looting.
