Who is narconews?

It does appear that they are stating the obvious, but still shouldn't we be able to find a better source?

Anyone have a link to the government presentation, or better yet the report that is behind the presentation? I couldn't turn anything up on a quick google search..:

42 grenade launchers valued at $518,531;

3,578 explosive projectiles, including grenades, valued at $78,251;

I bet these are MK19's and their ammo.

It is finally coming out. This has always been the issue, the government keeps a really low profile on this issue

:

caveat emptor

i trust no one entirely.

however, plenty of citations and links in the article. and like you say, this information is much more consonant with common sense and what i might call the "empirically obvious" - contrary to the bs peddled by the corporate owned media and politicos.
