Seems the Government Accounting Office has released the results of its investigation into U.S. Army and Marine Corps body armor testing and procurement.
Specifically, we found that the Army and Marine Corps
• are currently meeting theater ballistic requirements and the required amount
needed for personnel in theater, including the amounts needed for the surge of
troops into Iraq;
• have controls in place during manufacturing and after fielding to assure that body
armor meets requirements; and
• share information regarding ballistic requirements and testing, and the
development of future body armor systems, although they are not required to do
Sorry Pinnacle. No. Government. Conspiracy.
