We Have Met The Enemy And He Is Us!

According to an article by Glenn Kessler, in yesterday’s, August 6, 2007, Washington Post, the Pentagon and the U.S. government is not able to account for nearly 200,000 weapons, including AK-47’s and pistols, that were given to the Iraqi police and armed forces.
It is highly likely that these weapons are now in the hands of the insurgents.
The report is from the Government Accountability Office and maintains that U.S. officials have lost track of 30 percent of the weapons the United States distributed to Iraqi forces from 2004 through early this year as part of an effort to train and equip the troops.
So far it has cost U.S. taxpayers $19.2 billion to develop Iraqi security forces.
