The headquarters staff is not the DOD.

It amazes me clueless people are about the military/govemrent work.


you've never heard about secret funds ?

or is it again about semantic ? should i have wrote special funds maybe ?

you know those off-the-books funds which are not budgeted by Congress or the President to fund special operations (like training and arming the Contras during Iran-Contra of the 80s) ?

doesn't ring a bell really ? (and you're the one with the clue, love that, good tactic man, keep it on)

No about all this paper work being in one room. Which you yourself have posted proof it was only pay papers for the Armys headquaters staff at the Pentagon. The put that in plain civilian english, every unit has a pay office. It is where you for pay problems, taking care TDY, combat and other types of pay. The office that was wrecked is where the Army personel who worked in the Pentagon itself would go. Paper records were no doubt destroyed, however they are also on computers and can be reprinted if needed.

ya ok i get it : every thing is decentralized & the administrative section of pentagone is there to administrate pentagone, no more no less certainly not to keep the accounts of what the pentagone decide, organize, contract, order, corrupt etc

hmmm
...
that would actually mean that they don't decide, organize, contract, order, corrupt, ect anything

great management concept, i'm impressed & indeed you were right, i was clueless that the pentagone was just an architectural concept, and the staff job to occupy it,
thanks for the lesson in management man i feel less an idiot now
