If it is true that they are having to dig through scrap metal to find armor then its a question worth asking, regardless who asks it. Better a soildier does than a reporter.

I applaud the soldier's courage for asking the question. Seems all the millions are lining someone's pocket rather than providing the troops with the equipment and protection they need.

For all those that are moaning about this...so it's ok when members of the government plant their own questions to be asked by the media, and insist on knowing and approving questions asked long before they are asked...yet it's not ok when them tables are turned?
I mean that reporter must've got that question from a soldier in the first place. It's not like he's out there driving tanks e.t.c. so it was a valid question that many soldiers want answered, one that would probably not be answered in the controlled enviroment they like to set up, where no hard questions are ever asked or if they are they are already aware well advanced and have the typical 'politician' answer already planned. You know, the 'answering the question without actually answering it' one?
