Pentagon Can't Account for a Trillion Dollars of Expenditures

 

The Pentagon's Inspector General has discovered that the Department of Defense cannot account for a trillion dollar's worth of expenses. This is seen as much bigger than the controversy over the $640 toilet seats it used to purchase.

Things are so bad that the Army cannot account for 32 tanks, 36 Javelin missile command launch-units and 56 planes. Currently, the Pentagon is approaching an annual $400 billion budget despite such conditions. Some are working to change things.

Project on Governmental Oversight Director Danielle Brian says that politics have made it so congressman increase defense spending without controls because it would be "unpatriotic" to do otherwise. A GAO head says Wal Mart tracks toothpaste better.

  another reason  
 
the pentagon is evil.
All information should be free to everyone. The longer it isnt the longer they manipulate us like they do. Patriotism has been used as another tool for manipulation its sad how far they are going to get what they want.
Seems everyone is to stupid to do anything about it.
