Source Scrap Heap of War: Billions in equipment being left behind in Afghanistan
The United States military leaving $6 billion worth of U.S. assets behind as it withdraws from Afghanistan.
That includes 850 MRAPS (Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected) vehicles which have been credited with saving countless lives from improvised explosive devices (IEDs) on the road, but now will either be given to an allied country (as long as they pay the shipping costs) or for scrap on the Afghan market.
170 million pounds of vehicles, equipment and “white gear” That’s all the non-military stuff that contractors have been using, like furniture, generators, chemical toilets, air conditioners, non-classified computers and more are being left behind. What they cannot, or will not, donate or sell to the Afghans or to allies is being destroyed so that it doesn’t fall into Taliban hands. Reports indicate that most of the $6 billion worth of materiel will indeed be sold for scrap or thrown in the junkyard.
Pentagon spokesman Mark Wright said “excess equipment” like base operating support equipment, forklifts, generators and other supplies (given) to the Afghan National Security Forces (ANSF), and (still) has more than $53 billion in equipment and support including 160 aircraft, 100,000 vehicles, 500,000 weapons and 200,000 pieces of communications and night-vision equipment.

Source US government reportedly ordering drone strikes based on cell phone location
Never borrow or use someones cellphone. You may be bombed by Obama or one of this White House Gang Members.
The U.S. government is ordering drone strikes based on the location of terror suspects’ cell phones without confirming the location of the terrorist. Raising concerns about missiles hitting unintended targets.
Former drone operator and other sources, said the NSA uses a “complex analysis of electronic surveillance” to pinpoint drone strike targets. However, the report said, The CIA and U.S. military don’t always confirm who the target is with informants on the ground. This raises the concern that the flagged phone could be in the hands of someone else, a friend, a family member, someone who’s holding the wrong phone at the wrong time when the missile is fired.
