Vast amounts of weapons-related material missing, official says

The more than 320 tons of missing Iraqi high explosives at center stage in the U.S. presidential election are only a fraction of the weapons-related material thats disappeared in Iraq since the U.S.-led invasion last year. Huge amounts of arms and ammunition were stolen from military sites, and theres ample evidence that Iraqi insurgents are firing looted weapons at U.S. troops and using some of them in car bombs and improvised explosive devices, said a senior U.S. intelligence official, speaking on condition of anonymity. U.N. officials also are concerned about the disappearance of sensitive equipment and controlled materials that could be used to develop nuclear, biological or chemical weapons.
