Your US Tax Dollars at work?

Efraim Diveroli, 22, is doing his "patriotic" duty as an arms dealer, his grandfather says.

Excerpt: ... 22-year-old international arms dealer who faces a congressional inquiry for allegedly selling old Chinese ammunition to the U.S. military to equip allies in Afghanistan.

Diveroli is president of AEY Inc., a South Florida company which, according to U.S. government documents, has done more than $10 million of business with the U.S. government since 2004.

The papers also reveal the company struck it big in 2007 with contracts totaling more than $200 million to supply ammunition, assault rifles and other weapons to the Afghan National Army and police. The company's contract said it would get the ammunition from Hungary.

But Army investigators found what the Afghan military got included corroded ammunition made in China as long as 46 years ago. [more from CNN]
