$1 Billion In Missing American Weapons In Iraq !
In spite of retarded statements made by Canada's Conservative Defence Minister about 'Iranian weapons in Afghanistan', the Pentagon Inspector General has determined that over $1 Billion in US weapons are missing in Iraq and may have moved into the black market.
"Tractor trailers, tank recovery vehicles, crates of machine guns and rocket propelled grenades are just a sampling of more than $1 billion in unaccounted for military equipment and services provided to the Iraqi security forces, according to a new report issued today by the Pentagon Inspector General.
The report details a massive failure in government procurement revealing little accountability for the billions of dollars spent purchasing military hardware for the Iraqi security forces. For example, according to the report, the military could not account for 12,712 out of 13,508 weapons, including pistols, assault rifles, rocket propelled grenade launchers and machine guns."
