190,000 US Weapons 'Disappear In Iraq'

One Hundred And Ten Thousand of these:


"According to the GAO, the US supplied Iraqi soldiers and police with 185,000 AK-47 assault rifles and 170,000 pistols between 2003 and September 2005. But the report said the Pentagon had lost track of 110,000 rifles and 80,000 pistols. It said the defence[sic] department could also not account for 135,000 pieces of body armour and 115,000 helmets."
