    Pentagon lost almost 200,000 weapons in Iraq
    August 06, 2007

    Nearly 200,000 U.S.-supplied rifles and pistols meant for Iraqi security forces are unaccounted for in Iraq, according to a report to Congress.

    Loose record-keeping caused the Pentagon and the U.S. command in Iraq to lose track of about 110,000 AK-47 rifles and 80,000 pistols provided to the new Iraqi national police and army, the Government Accountability Office told Congress.

    The investigative arm of Congress, the GAO also found that 250,000 pieces of body armor and helmets can't be accounted for.
