Sen. Warren Demands to Know is US Weapons Used by Al-Qaeda & Iran
This past Friday, Senator Elizabeth Warren sent a scathing letter to Patrick Shanahan (Acting Defense Secretary) and Mike Pompeo (Secretary of State) demanding information on the allegation of American weapons being transferred to al-Qaida & Iran-backed fighters.
This prompted CNN to initiate an investigation, with them coming to a conclusion that United States tactical equipment has fallen into the hands of Iranian-backed rebels fighting in Yemen.
As a result, America's sensitive military technology has been exposed to Tehran, which could endanger the lives of U.S. troops in certain conflict zones.
It is prohibited for foreign governments to receive weapons and other defense gear without authorization. If any nation were to break this, the government in question would have to re-transfer said weapons.
Some of the foreign equipment found included MRAP & ATV's that were manufactured to withstand ballistic and IEDs. CNN reported that these and American-made anti-tank missiles have been reportedly sighted to be air-dropped on the frontline where al-Qaeda is known to be based.
