So what I read from the initial article is that the US government gave a over $3 million to guy who does not have a high school degree, so that he
could provide the requisite ammunition to the soldiers currently fighting in Iraq. As if that did not already strain credulity, this youth got into
contact with Albanian gun runners, operating in a mafia type crime syndicate, who sold him obsolete, 40 year old, Chinese made ammunition that was
actually corroded in the boxes. To make it worse, these Albanian gun smugglers were already under a government watchlist.
How can such an administration function, when it wantonly flings money at the lowest bidders and does not checking into whether, those suppliers have
the legal means to attain the ammunition? I remember when a million dollars was a big deal to anyone and now it seems that terms like million and
trillion are often bandied about when it comes to this war.
It is my belief that certain elements of the government operate beyond the strictures of money per say, and have distanced themselves from the
collapsing American economy. The efforts of these people seem superficially to provoke a stalemate in the Middle Eastern theater, amongst other
I don't think further investigation into this matter will result in any understanding of how the upper echelons of certain government groups
function, but will provide me another piece in the puzzle to solve.
