    A recently released audit of the US government's multi-billion dollar program to arm the Iraqi government revealed "inaccurate visibility and accountability documentation for equipment worth more than $1 billion."

    However, in a subsequent interview with Sputnik, Defense Department spokesperson Eric Pahon denied the report, saying that the story was inaccurate.
