Pictures From an Excavation
These photos chronicle a July 6 excavation of a MiG-25
'Foxbat' somewhere in the Iraqi desert.
"Hey! What's this? ...Don't touch anything!"
"Let's get the guys with the tools."
"I found it -- can I keep it?"
(Note "Let's Roll" on the transporter.)
"We'd heard a great many things had been buried, but we had not
known where they were, and we'd been operating in that immediate
vicinity for weeks and weeks and weeks... 12, 13 weeks, and didn't
know they were [there]," Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld
