Friendly Fire

In a report that encapsulates the bungling of the Iraq adventure, the Pentagon's Special Inspector for Iraq Reconstruction said it cannot account for 4% of the American weapons supplied to Iraq since the end of 2003. The missing inventory includes RPG launchers, machine guns, assault rifles and semiautomatic pistols. Less than 3% of the missing weapons have registered serial numbers. The report was made at the request of John Warner (R-VA) chairman of the powerful Senate Armed Services Committee. So I guess this means we are own worse enemy.
