More than 190,000 AK-47 assault rifles and pistols distributed to Iraqi forces by the US are missing, feared fallen into the hands of insurgents, a congressional watchdog warned today

"They really have no idea where they are," Rachel Stohl, a senior analyst at the Centre for Defence Information, told the Washington Post, which reported the GAO's findings. "It likely means that the United States is unintentionally providing weapons to bad actors," Ms Stohl said.

Already a thread about this here. Mustve popped up while I was typing this one.

I believe Iraq needs some outside influence to help it stabilize, but this is not the way to do it; sending young soldiers in there to die in truck bombs and letting the insurgents steal hundreds of thousands of weapons. Offhand I don't see another way it can be done, but I'm sure if I wearn't about to fall off my seat for tiredness I could think of a way. So GWB, with every thinktank the nation has behind him, can't work out a better way to do things than to send to army in to shoot people carrying breadsticks?

Someones got to tell the man to pull his finger out.
190k guns gone . . . "Uhh, they might have gone to the enemy . . . we aren't really sure . . ."
