The US has lost track of about 190,000 weapons issued to Iraqi security forces since the 2003 invasion, some of which will have ended up in the hands of insurgents, according to an official report published in Washington. Among the missing items are AK-47 rifles, pistols, body armour and helmets.

As Lady Bracknell would say — To lose one gun, Bush, may be regarded as a carelessness; to lose so many looks like ineptitude.
