It Takes a Genius


The U.S. military can't find 190,000 weapons given willy-nilly to Iraqi forces when security training was run by Gen. David Petraeus, raising fears, as The Washington Post delicately puts it, that the military genius who is now the top U.S. commander in Iraq has armed the insurgents fighting U.S. troops.

Makes you wonder what else besides AK-47s, pistols, body armor and helmets will have gone missing by September, when Petraeus is scheduled to report to Congress about "progress" in Iraq.

Thousands of Iraqi civilians maybe? More U.S. troops killed and wounded? Political sanity? 2007-08-06-GR2007080600161.jpg
