Or, this either: Exclusive: The Pentagon’s Massive Accounting Fraud Exposed
Nope. Who would’ve thunk a measly missing $21 trillion or so dollars would be news!
“Let that sink in for a moment: As things stand, no one knows for sure how the biggest single-line item in the US federal budget is actually being spent. What’s more, Congress as a whole has shown little interest in investigating this epic scandal. The absurdly huge plugs never even get asked about at Armed Services and Budget Committee hearings.”
“So here’s the situation: We have a Pentagon budget that a former DOD internal-audit supervisor, Jack Armstrong, bluntly labels “garbage.” We have a Congress unable to evaluate each new fiscal year’s proposed Pentagon budget because it cannot know how much money was actually spent during prior years. And we have a Department of Defense that gives only lip service to fixing any of this. Why should it? The status quo has been generating ever-higher DoD budgets for decades, not to mention bigger profits for Boeing, Lockheed, and other military contractors.”
“The losers in this situation are everyone else. The Pentagon’s accounting fraud diverts many billions of dollars that could be devoted to other national needs: health care, education, job creation, climate action, infrastructure modernization, and more. Indeed, the Pentagon’s accounting fraud amounts to theft on a grand scale—theft not only from America’s taxpayers, but also from the nation’s well-being and its future.”
Here's the story.
Con mucho bravado, the protectors of truth, our press people, were followin’ the latest Mr. Confusion tweets while the biggest frickin scandal on earth was going down.
Holy Jigumbus Bucks, Batman!
That’s an understatement, Robin.
The Missing Money
$21 Trillion dollars is missing from the US government. That is $65,000 for every person in America. That is more than our entire national debt!
But, this is just for fun...
