www.msnbc.msn.com...

"Government Accountability Office investigators posing as private citizens were able to buy sensitive excess military equipment from a Department of Defense logistics agency, a GAO report obtained by NBC News shows."

You really have to wonder how we can possibly win a war when we can't even manage to protect one of our own Government Agencies. What I can't understand is why the Department of Defense would allow these things to be sold to private citizens in the first place. I mean really, " Hi, I'd like to buy a launcher mount"?

Because IMO the DOD is just as corrupt as the rest of gubmint offices. In an upcoming research project, you will see the entertwined rabbit holes of that dept, the cia, and private corporations, all in bed together making billions from the american peoples.

As u can see from that article, they were bought at a fraction of the cost as what they are sold to the us taxpayers(not literally of course). Hopefully this wont get swept under the proverbial rug that is the short attention span of the american sheeples. Its amazing how many of these stories come out. But then quickly shoved outta the way for the next big story, never to be gotten back to again. Kinda like how iraq has left the forefront of news channels for the isreali conflict. How many us soldiers and iraqi civilians have died in the last week of that conflict that we have so convienently shoved to the back burner?

All i can say is **expletive deleted**expletive deleted**expletive deleted**
