Geneva, Switzerland

Summary:

Researchers used FOIA to obtain records of over 500 caches of weapons recovered in Iraq and Afghanistan in 2006-9, as well as detailed U.S. Army reports on small arms and light weapons in Iraq at the beginning of the U.S. invasion. Although redactions hindered researchersí efforts to draw conclusions from the information, they did surmise that U.S. forces seemed to devote more attention to weapons of Iranian origin.
