Summary:

Suspicions at the Pentagon that U.S.-allied forces in Iraq were poaching body armor slated for American troops led to an Army Inspector General (IG) investigation, but the IG report found that the Department of Defense itself had contributed substantially to the confusion and delay in procuring body armor for American troops.

Notes:

The New York Times used the Freedom of Information Act to obtain the April 20, 2004 IG report.
