Lost Without Trace

Congratulations to President Shrub for engineering a situation in Iraq, whereby over 190,000 weapons supplied by the US have gone missing.

Over 190,000 AK-47 assault rifles and pistols, distributed to Iraqi forces by the US, are missing. It is assumed that they simply haven't been "lost", but are now in the hands of those intent on causing chaos and bloodshed.

A report from the government accountability office (GAO), said that US military officials did not know what had happened to 30% of the weapons the US had given to Iraqi forces since 2004.

Rachel Stohl, a senior analyst at the Centre for Defence Information, said:

"They really have no idea where they are.

It likely means that the United States is unintentionally providing weapons to bad actors

The watchdog said that weapons distribution was rushed and failed to follow established procedures, particularly in 2004 and 2005. During that period, security training was led by General David Petraeus.

Ironically he is now the top US commander in Iraq, and the one that Shrub is waiting to hear from in September; when the final decision to pull US forces out of Iraq will be forced on Shrub, like it or not.
