Museums Not all of the Iraqi artifacts may have been looted. The inventory of lost pieces has fallen from 170,000 to ... 38. As Columbo would say, something about this doesn't quite add up. Like the maths in this article. At the start fortyish is the figure given. Then at the end:
"Investigators found that the basement storage area, which held thousands of small items not deemed suitable for display, had been disturbed in one of the four rooms. They broke through a cinder-block barrier to the room to find hundreds of cardboard boxes intact and about 90 plastic boxes, containing about 5,000 less-valuable items, missing. "
Just saying.
