Taliban stealing U.S. Army uniforms

Taliban stealing U.S. Army uniforms 13 Nov 2010 Pentagon officials are warning commanders not to ship Army uniforms through the usual U.S. supply routes in Pakistan and Afghanistan because Taliban fighters are stealing them to "gain a tactical advantage on the battlefield." In a message obtained by POLITICO, the Pentagon tells Army commanders that certain uniform items should be treated as "sensitive cargo" and flown into Afghanistan, not shipped over land, so they won't be intercepted.
