Missing

BBC's news reports today that the Pentagon says 190,000 AK-47, pistols and other assault weapons that they gave to Iraqi security forces have "gone missing." About 30% of the weapons they have distributed there over the last three years cannot be accounted for.

190,000? I'm a little speechless.

Crazy, these things that "simply happen". Maybe Dan and I can head out tonight and see the new documentary No End In Sight. KPFK had a piece on it as well as NPR. May we move forward with our eyes open.

I hear from reliable sources that it is much worse than is being reported...naturally!
