Seeing as how anti-gun the current administration has been towards American citizens it’s very interesting that they seem hell bent on arming drug cartels, terrorists and other undesirables.
According to a recent report, it seems that the Pentagon has lost track of as many as 203,000 small arms sent to Afghanistan over the last decade.
According to The Washington Times,
Over the past decade, the Pentagon has provided what the report describes as more than 747,000 weapons and auxiliary equipment to the Afghan National Security Forces at a cost of $626 million. Small arms, such as rifles, pistols, machine guns, grenade launchers and shotguns, account for the majority of those weapons.
Of the 474,823 serial numbers recorded in the oversight database, 203,888 of those numbers — or about 43 percent — had missing or duplicate information, according to data collected by auditors.
Auditors discovered in the course of their research that 24,520 serial numbers were repeated in the database, often more than once, and that no shipping or receiving dates were attached to 50,304 serial numbers.
With that many weapons unaccounted for I think we can assume that at least some of these firearms were actively used against American troops at some point, and may actually be in use by terror organizations.
Between this development and the Fast and Furious case, I think it’s pretty clear who this administration wants to be armed.
