Defense Secretary Robert Gates says the U.S. will sell to its NATO allies in Afghanistan mine-resistant vehicles and other equipment to protect against roadside bombs. Gates says the vehicles can be spared because fewer U.S. troops will be in Iraq to need them there. The U.S. also plans to provide NATO troops with jammers, robotic equipment and road-clearing equipment. Much of the technology is highly classified and not normally shared. Gates said Friday the U.S. will provide "whatever we can within the limits of the law" to help protect the allies' troops.
