The Defense Department "can't find" $6.5 trillion, according to the Pentagon Inspector General's report released last week (under cover of the Olympics for distraction. Have you heard about this issue on the mainstream news?) They're not saying whether it was embezzled or not, they just don't know where it is. All federal agencies are required by law to conduct regular financial audits. However, the Pentagon has NEVER complied with that federal law. "In 20 years, it has never accounted for the trillions of dollars in taxpayer funds it has spent, in part because 'fudging' the numbers has become standard operating procedure at the Department of Defense, as revealed in a 2013 Reuters investigation." - As a reminder: On Sept. 10, 2001 Donald Rumsfeld spoke about $2.3 trillion missing from the Pentagon budget. The horrific events of the next day nicely wiped the issue from American consciousness. Almost as if Rumsfeld timed it that way on purpose...?
Adding to the appearance of impropriety is the fact that thousands of documents that should be on file have been removed and disappeared without any reasonable explanation.
A new Department of Defense Inspector General’s report, released last week, has left Americans stunned at the jaw-dropping lack of accountability and oversight. The glaring report revealed the Pentagon couldn’t account for $6.5 trillion dollars worth of Army general fund transactions and data, according to a report by the Fiscal Times.
The Pentagon, which has been notoriously lax in its accounting practices, has never completed an audit, would reveal how the agency has specifically spent the trillions of dollars allocated for wars, equipment, personnel, housing, healthcare and procurement’s allotted to them by Congress.
