Our tax dollars and war effort at work: The U.S. militaryâ€™s main supplier of munitions to Afghanistanâ€™s army and police forces has been sending ammunition that is more than 40 years old, much of it coming â€œfrom the aging stockpiles of the old communist bloc, including stockpiles that the State Department and NATO have determined to be unreliable and obsolete, and have spent millions of dollars to have destroyed,â€ the New York Times reported. Whatâ€™s more, AEY Inc. worked with middlemen and a shell company on a federal list of entities suspected of illegal arms trafficking and appears to have purchased some ammunition from China, which could be a violation of American law.
