Arming The Enemy

Stunning incompetence:

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.

Let’s be clear about this — we provided over 13,000 weapons to the Iraqi Security forces so that they can secure their own country . . . and we can only account for 800 of those weapons now?

Were Iraqis able to just walk into the weapons depot and take whatever they liked?  Are they missing because these so-called "Iraqi Security Forces" are now insurgents?  Isn’t it safe to assume they are now being used against our forces?

The mind boggles….
