Abstract:

The Administrations National Strategy for Victory in Iraq lays out the goals and general framework to achieve security and stability in Iraq to include building the capacity of the Iraqi government to defeat terrorists and neutralize insurgents and illegal armed groups. On October 13, 2005, the Department of Defense DoD reported to the Congress that the development and fielding of the Iraqi logistics capabilities is a critical component for the Iraqi Security Forces ISF in conducting security operations independently. Multi-National Force-Iraq MNF-I is using funds from both the Iraq Relief and Reconstruction Fund IRRF and the Iraq Security Forces Fund to build the logistics capabilities of the Iraqi Army under the Ministry of Defense and the Iraqi local and national police forces under the Ministry of Interior. Our report is limited to the use of IRRF to achieve these goals, while the DoD Office of Inspector General and the U.S. Government Accountability Office have been charged with reporting on Iraq Security Forces Fund expenditures. As of August 1, 2006, the United States had spent 666 million from the IRRF on the development and fielding of these capabilities.
