Wanna Know Where All Our Bullets Are??

A Billion Bucks in Bullets - U.S. government has given Afghan National Army more than $1 billion in ammo


The U.S. government has given the embattled Afghan National Army (ANA) more than $1 billion in taxpayer-funded ammunition, according to the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction’s (SIGAR) latest oversight report. This is in addition to $288 million that has been spent on ammunition for the troubled Afghan National Police (ANP), which has been cited by SIGAR for its widespread corruption.

Isn't it great? Some politician (who is probably anti gun) sends bullets over to people who then shoot our troops in the back as they are trying to train them.


“Insider attacks accounted for one in every five combat deaths suffered by NATO-led forces in Afghanistan and 16 percent of all American combat casualties according to 2012 data,” NBC said in its report. There were 12 such attacks in 2011 and 34 in the first half of 2012, according to the New America Foundation.
