No, the DHS did not set up an order to buy any MRAPs. If you want the real story, you go to the source itself. You dont depend on the news. Or did
the news just now become the best source for everything?
Contract M67854-07-D-5032 calls for the purchase of 2,717 MRAPs by the Navy, for use by the Navy and Marine Corps. This is an $880 million contract
and is perfectly visible to the public through www.fpds.gov.
The DoN is not the DHS. The DHS does have MRAPs, but only between 16 and 32 of them. Some sources say 16, some say 32. Go with the higher number if
you wish, I dont care. The point is that this whole "DHS buying 2700 MRAPs" stuff is complete BS that was fabricated to cause more fear among those
that are already concerned with other contracts that DO exist.
This has been explained several times across several threads here on ATS. What I say is not an opinion on the matter, it is 100% factual and backed
up by all evidence that exists on the subject.
