ARMY EQUIPMENT LOST IN AFGHANISTAN (FOUO)

Hundreds of millions of dollars worth of U.S. Army equipment and supplies in Afghanistan have been lost or are unaccounted for, a report from the Department of Defense Inspector General said.

„Since 2010, 309 forward operating bases [in Afghanistan] have closed and only a fraction of lost items from previous [inventory loss investigations] have been located. For example, between 2006 and 2010, there were 174,247 pieces of equipment listed as unaccounted for […], valued at $429.5 million…. As of May 30, 2014, only 40,690 (23 percent) of the total pieces of equipment and $191.1 million (44 percent) of the total dollar amount have been recovered,“ the IG report said.

That paragraph in the report was marked „For Official Use Only,“ as was the report as a whole.  Accordingly, the report has not been officially released to the public. (The findings of the report were previously reported by Bloomberg News).

The October 30 report is entitled „The Army Needs to Improve the Processes for Reporting Inventory Losses in Afghanistan.“

In the Department of Defense, „For Official Use Only“ applies to unclassified records that may be exempt from mandatory disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act. It is not clear how the FOUO marking might be justified in this case.

    DIW: Deutsche Kriegs Kosten in Afghanistan: 26 bis 46 Milliarden €

    Die praktisch durchaus seriöste Quelle, welche auch oft von der
    Bundesregierung beauftragt wird, für Reports.

    Deutsche Politiker lernen vor allem aus den ständigen Auslands
    Desastern Nichts, was aufzeigt: die Bande ist vollkommen korrupt und
    inkompetend. Nur bei vertuschen von Ausgaben, fälschen von Berichten
    ist man mit viel krimineller Energie immer dabei

    Afghanistan Auch nach Ende der ISAF-Mission will Deutschland Soldaten
    an den Hindukusch schicken. Doch die Bilanz des Einsatzes ist
    desaströs
    …………….
    Die Politik hat aus dem Desaster in Afghanistan nichts gelernt…..

    Die Kosten des bisherigen Einsatzes belaufen sich allein für die
    Bundesrepublik nach Schätzungen des Deutschen Instituts für
    Wirtschaftsforschung auf 26 bis 46 Milliarden Euro.
