North African militant groups affiliated with terrorist organizations and the Muslim Brotherhood have made off with large numbers of sensitive United States-issued military equipment in Libya.
The items stolen included dozens of heavily armored vehicles called GMVs, each with GPS navigation systems and specialized weapons mounts, according to Fox News.
Approximately 100 Glock pistols and more than 100 M4 rifles are also missing. But that’s not the worst of it. Fox reported:
More disturbing, according to the sources, is that it seems almost every set of night-vision goggles has also been taken. This is advanced technology that gives very few war fighters an advantage on the battlefield.
Advanced night vision capability has always given U.S. military a tremendous advantage on the battlefield, allowing troops to say, “We own the night,” as the mantra goes.
