This is such bull#. No, it's horse#. My God we are living in the Twilight Zone.

I think the scariest thing about these kinds of things is that no one truly investigates, nor ever will find out where the money went to.

Kinda like 9/11 a good number of people want the truth, but nothing really ever seems to come of it.


If we did something like this we'd be getting jail time, or investigated until everything was found out, then we were punished somehow.

Its called black buget top secret projects. You will never know who or what has that money its just gone for ultra secret projects.

Yet somehow there is never enough money for real, evidence based investments such as improving all of our schools and education, or basic health care for all, like all other developed countries have.

Those trillions would pay for these needs tens of times over.

Its as though the highest levels of government are run like the mob.

Try this for a second time.

There isn't $6.5 Trillion missing and the report doesn't say that there is. 6.5 trillion would be the entire defence budget for about ten years.

The report says that the Pentagon has inadequate accounting systems and cant pass audit requirements for its expenditures. This is clearly something that needs addressed but the idea that 6.5 trillion has been misplaced, stolen or spent on secret black ops projects is as laughable a s the myth that 2.3 trillion was missing and somehow covered up by 911.

$6.5 trillion is more than the 2016 US federal budget. People need to apply a little critical thinking to this subject.

You never know. It does seem probable that it was spent on some type of black project, and if so, that amount of money would be some seriously advanced tech.


Seriously, what amount of this went to the The AGI Manhattan Project?

You do realise that lots of defence money can't be accounted for in the normal way?

If you were say a Chinese or Russian spook agency and all defence money was accounted for how easy would it be to know exactly what they wanted to about US defence? For anything to be done in secret money has to be spent out of sight. That's where most of the money is.

Anyone disagree?

The Japanese provided all the steel for the towers back in the 1960's, how much profit was made then?
The rationalization for these projects is that they stimulate the global economy.

If you did a careful accounting of the world budget after WW2 would you find there was a net economic boost or would you find that the war debts from the treaties of Versailles and Brest-Litovsk after WW1 were just deflated in value?

Could be a pyramid scheme?

But it this way the Manhattan project that built the 3 atomic bombs during WW2 only cost 2 billion dollars.

Here is some information I came across today on this subject. A source with some interesting facts:

Lack of Audits (1996-2013) Hid $8.5 Trillion in Expenditures If an annual audit system had existed between 1996 and 2013, it might have revealed that $8.5 trillion of our tax dollars were spent, but never appeared on Pentagon's books.

For years, the Pentagon's imperious response to required audits for all federal departments has been that its operations are so vast, so complex and so secret, it can't comply.

Its officials know neither presidents nor Congress would ever dare withhold allocations.

The 2017 deadline has been postponed to 2018, seemingly without complaints.

In 1996 and 2009, presidents and two Congresses have signed annual audit laws specifically for the Pentagon. That neither law is enforced explains who's really running our country..

Lot of important and verifiable history and facts in this article:

Of course, many Americans are willing to pay for a strong defense,

but perhaps not for starting wars abroad largely to benefit corporations, or to rule the world or for war profiteering.

We learned about contractor profiteering when President Ronald Reagan's investigating committee discovered the Pentagon's $600 toilet seat and $435 hammer.

Today, it's the estimated $1 trillion to upgrade our nuclear weapons capacity and the $400,000 customized F-35 pilot's helmet from Rockwell Collins.

And an interesting proposal: (we/us, refers to, the taxpayer)

Let's push to remove Pentagon allocations from the federal budget and, instead, shift it to us as a direct supplementary "war tax" to be included in our income tax forms.

We've been paying the Pentagon bills anyway, but most have never known exactly what their share has been for this perpetual war on terror we're supposed to get used to. With this tax, we would know.

In 2015, the number of taxpayers was 230,090,857. So, the $610.5 billion Pentagon allocation would work out to an average of$2,653.30 per taxpayer

Maybe it is a product of reading Georgia Guidestone threads?

People should take your post very seriously, reason being the future of warfare is in robotics; flying drones, underwater drones, robotic ground vehicles etc. The US has always been on the leading edge of weapons development and the use of human soldiers is becoming a thing of the past. Humans will still be needed to control the actions of the robotic weapons platforms.

Imagine how many drones etc could be built with a few trillion dollars. They have them for every situation and for every battlefield be it ground, air or water. Large, long range drones that can release thousands of tiny drones to monitor vast areas, submarine drones that can do something similar to watch vast stretches of ocean. Crawling drones that can enter buildings and perform missions from observation to assassination. No matter how good your imagination rest assured that DARPA has already gone far beyond that.

The most frightening aspect to robotic warfare is that it only takes a few people to control them and they could be anywhere, even underground. The only thing holding them back is they don't want to let potential enemies know what weapons we have. It keeps them from developing systems to counter the threat.

When they do unleash these terminator machines it will be WW3. Nothing short of global war will open the gates of hell and flood the world with these insane creations of destruction. When they do most people will be too stunned to move trying to figure out wth they are looking at before it blows them to bits.

In the famous words of somebody:
"You ain't seen nothing yet!"
