Missing Iraqi Weapons!

The Pentagon has lost track of about 190,000 AK-47 assault rifles and pistols given to Iraqi security forces in 2004 and 2005.The United States has spent $19.2 billion trying to develop Iraqi security forces since 2003, and at least $2.8 billion to buy and deliver equipment. But the Pentagon has admitted that the weapons distribution was haphazard and rushed and failed to follow established procedures.
Jon Stewart calls it 'Profound Incompetence'. Sure it is!

C'mon folks dont you see reason? You need some sounds from the opposition to keep your troops stay put? Otherwise how can you justify the spending and the threat of terrorIsts? The funniest thing about this is the mention of clerical error-So much for claims of advanced systems,brains and procedures that no other country can match.Ooops!! i forgot that the president still fumbles with his numbers which may have been the case with his team too in Iraq-Or is is deliberate incompetency????Ash
