Bankrolling terror? European countries reportedly paying millions in ransoms to Al Qaeda 07/30/2014 Bankrolling terror? European countries reportedly paying millions in ransoms to Al Qaeda
Several European nations are bankrolling Al Qaeda by paying the terror group millions of dollars in ransoms over the past several years to free kidnapped citizens, the New York Times reported Tuesday.

The governments, which include France, Switzerland, Austria, Italy and Germany, all denied to the Times that they had paid the ransoms to the terror organization. However, the Times reported Al Qaeda and its affiliates have earned at least $125 million from ransoms since 2008, a revenue source that counter-terrorism officials say funds most of the group’s recruitment, training activities, and weapons.

Report says Pentagon has lost track of thousands of firearms given to Afghan forces 07/28/2014 Report says Pentagon has lost track of thousands of firearms given to Afghan forces
The Pentagon has been unable to locate more than 40 percent of the firearms it has provided to Afghan security forces at a cost of $626 million, according to a report by a government oversight agency due to be made public Monday.

The report by the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR) states that the Defense Department's two information systems that track weapons sent to Afghanistan are full of errors. That has sparked fears that at least some of the weapons may be available on the black market, with militants among the potential purchasers.
