Bunker Footage

Two points on the KSTP al Qa Qaa stories:

  • The 101st Airborne troops didn't feel that security was threatened. The troops and reporters didn't appear to be wearing body armor or helmets. The troops maintain the bunkers were inside a guarded perimeter. Running around like it was some kind of field trip supports that.

  • In the story about the seals the reporters mention they didn't enter the sealed bunker and couldn't determine what was inside.

What the stories tell us is there were lots of explosives at a few bunkers at al Qa Qaa. There was also an IAEA-sealed bunker. It does not tell us if HMX or RDX was there. It also does not tell us if they were looted.
