Army Guard Short of Equipment at Home

Army Guard Short of Equipment at Home - Yahoo! News:
"As of June, Army National Guard units had left overseas more than 64,000 pieces of equipment worth more than $1.2 billion, and more than half cannot be accounted for by the Army, according to the report by the Government Accountability Office.

On average, National Guard units at home have only 34 percent of their essential war-fighting equipment, said the report released at a hearing of the House Committee on Government Reform."

This verifies what many were saying after Katrina hit, that The Guard didn't have the equipment they needed here at home because it was in Iraq. The GAO keeps pointing out the idiocy of this administration because they have to keep an accounting of funds and materiel. They're about the only place any "accountability" takes place in D.C. these days.
