Not enough equipment

Announcement from Multi-National Force Iraq --

TIKRIT, Iraq – Eight Abna al-Iraq, or Sons of Iraq, were killed and three were wounded in an improvised explosive device detonation in southern Ninewah April 1.

The detonation occurred while the SOI members were transporting the IED to a nearby joint combat outpost for destruction.

Prompting the question: why are the US's Iraqi counterparts not given the proper equipment or training to deal with IEDs?
