What part of factual?

Three hundred and eighty tons of explosives are missing, says the news today.

Reacting to the IAEA announcement on Monday, Democratic presidential nominee Sen. John Kerry said the “incredible incompetence of this president and this administration has put our troops at risk and put this country at greater risk than we ought to be.”

In response, the Bush campaign accused Kerry of using the IAEA announcement to attack the president.

Well, yes. Would they prefer that Kerry attack the president with fiction instead? I mean, what, if anything, is a fair basis for a criticism if the real world is off limits?
