The Greatest General of All Time, the man who's singlehandedly going to rid the world of Pure Evil if he's not thwarted by those dastardly Democrats, may have a bit of explaining to do:

U.S. Weapons, Given to Iraqis, Move to Turkey

Weapons that were originally given to Iraqi security forces by the American military have been recovered over the past year by the authorities in Turkey after being used in violent crimes in that country, Pentagon officials said Wednesday.

...Pentagon officials said they did not yet have evidence that Iraqi security forces or Kurdish officials were selling or giving the weapons to Kurdish separatists, as Turkish officials have contended.

...American officials said that it appeared that the weapons found in Turkey were given to Iraqi units in 2004 and 2005 when, in the rush to build police and army units, controls on distribution of firearms had been much weaker. Gen. David H. Petraeus, who was then in charge of training and equipping Iraqi forces and who is now the top American commander in Iraq, has said that the imperative to provide weapons to Iraqi security forces was more important at the time than maintaining impeccable records....


Although the mere fact that I'm pointing this out proves, I'm sure, that I'm "anti-victory."
