Bush-era Military Supplied Taliban With Weapons in Afghanistan

US-made weapons, in the hundreds of thousands, have been going into Taliban hands in Afghanistan under George Bush, without even serial number records to trace them.

For the Afghanistan report, a GAO team toured the country last August and attempted to track various lots of weapons delivered to the war-torn country over a period of four years. The auditors found that inventory controls routinely used to track U.S. weapons were not applied in Afghanistan, in part because of manpower shortages and a lack of direction from the Pentagon, the report said. As a result, U.S. officials “cannot be certain that weapons intended for [Afghanistan’s army] have reached those forces,” it said.
