The VA Accounts For Every Dollar It Spends On Patients But The Pentagon Can’t Account for $6.5 Trillion.
The VA has no problem accounting for every dollar it spends on Veterans’ care down to the penny. However, if you ask the military to account for $6.5 trillion in spending, we are told that it is impossible, that is too difficult. Hence the problem, human capital is treated worse than actually monetary capital by our bureaucrats in charge of our care and our military. No more money for disabled veterans and they can show you that, but they can’t show you the $6.5 trillion spent on the military industrial complex. Lockheed, Boeing, and all, can we borrow your lobbyist because whatever pull we have in Washington DC isn’t working.
Read a wonderful article by Jay Syrmopoulos on this truly astounding situation where an accurate adjective is FUBAR.
“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 theFiscal Times.
While there is nothing in the IG’s report specifying that the money has been stolen, the mere fact that the Pentagon can’t account for how it spent the money reveals a potentially far greater problem than simple theft alone.”
