Amnesty International has confirmed that the US and Israel Army gave ISIS $1 billion worth of arms and equipment in Iraq, according to a report.
The data was obtained by the human rights group following a freedom of information request for a 2016 government audit.“This audit provides a worrying insight into the US Army’s flawed — and potentially dangerous system for controlling millions of dollars’ worth of arms transfers to a hugely volatile region,” Patrick Wilcken, Amnesty’s researcher on international arms control, said in a statement
The US Army failed to keep tabs on more than $1 billion worth of arms and other military equipment in Iraq and Kuwait according to a now declassified Department of Defense (DoD) audit, obtained by Amnesty International following Freedom of Information requests.

Why on earth there are 1Billion dollars worth of guns/rpgs whatever, even been made is just beyond my mind, then to be selling death to other nations and just filling this wonderful planet with gun cases.

Curious to know where these prehistoric weapons are coming from, where are they manufactured? Surely not in the US. After reading more, the title should be "ISIS OBTAINS 1B worth of weapons from Iraq while no one was looking".
Secret Pentagon Report Reveals US "Created" ISIS As A "Tool" To Overthrow Syria's President Assad
And while speculation was rife that just like the CIA-funded al Qaeda had been used as a facade by the US to achieve its own geopolitical and national interests over the past two decades, so ISIS was nothing more than al Qaeda 2.0, there was no actual evidence of just this.
That may all have changed now when a declassified secret US government document obtained by the public interest law firm, Judicial Watch, shows that Western governments deliberately allied with al-Qaeda and other Islamist extremist groups to topple Syrian dictator Bashir al-Assad.

For those who may not remember:
The US was negotiating with the Iraqi government (which we installed) to allow US troops to remain in Iraq. The US wanted immunity for any crimes US troops might commit in Iraq. The Iraqi government essentially said, "No. If the only way US troops can remain is with immunity, then they can leave. We don't need them here anymore."
Suddenly an obscure but extremely well funded and well armed group called ISIS appeared on the scene and started rolling over Iraqi forces. It seemed Iraq needed US forces to remain after all.
Pretty convenient, eh?

So tell me, where do you think those weapons came from?
Hint: still the same place as mentioned in the OP
ISIS is a USA shadow government
