South Park Character in Kabul, Afghanistan

No one can fault security contractors working in Afghanistan with a lack of humor.  It seems a security contractor named "Eric Cartman" (of South Park fame) signed for a number of weapons from an arms bunker.  The problem is some of the weapons are unaccounted for and they were meant for Afghan forces.  The press is having fun with this one and . . . of course . . . critics of security contracting firms as well.  Read more in "Cartman in Kabul", The New Yorker, February 24, 2010.
