The Department of Defense, Pentagon has never had an audit. The result? $10 trillion in taxpayer money has gone unaccounted for since 1996. Basically, Pentagon has lost track of $10 trillion and no one knows, not even the Department of Defense, really knows where it went or on what it was spent.
According to The Free Thought Project, Director of Audit The Pentagon, Rafael DeGennaro told the Guardian recently, “Over the last 20 years, the Pentagon has broken every promise to Congress about when an audit would be completed. Meanwhile, Congress has more than doubled the Pentagon’s budget.”
During 2014, an attempt was made to assemble a coalition of organisations that would be called the Audit the Pentagon Coalition. Moreover, Trump’s newly proposed budget seeks to increase $52 billion in military spending (more for the proxy war, more for jets and drones to drop more bombs on civilians).
The Office of the Inspector General (IG) and GAO have published an endless stream of reports documenting financial mismanagement: $500m in aid to Yemen lost here, $5.8bn in supplies lost there, $8,000 spent on helicopter gears that really cost $500.
According to the Official report, on September 11, 2011, American Airlines Flight 77 was hijacked and blown into the western side of the building, killing 189 people.
