Abstract:

The capacity of the Iraqi government to provide national security and public order is partly contingent on arming the Iraqi Security Forces ISF, under the Ministries of Defense and Interior. The United States is supporting the Iraqi ministries by providing arms from a variety of sources, including those captured, donated, and purchased. The United States plans to provide equipment for approximately 325,500 ISF personnel by December 2006. Of these, 277,600 have been issued weapons as of August 2006. Responsibility for determining weapons requirements and the initial equipping and training of ISF personnel primarily rests with the Multi-National Security Transition Command-Iraq MNSTC-I, a subordinate command of the Multi-National Force-Iraq MNF-I.
