Snoopy, how much research have you done?
Please watch this short youtube clip Rumsfeld grilled about missing trillions

Then, after you spend five minutes educating yourself on the trillions missing, that is not missing, it just cant be found, you should read a little on Chuck Spinney.
Its your/our money, and to dismiss the fact that trillions is unaccounted for seems dubious.


That video is exactly what proves you wrong. They are talking about it being unaccounted for. The entire yearly budget is around $300 million dollars. So 2.3 trillion is a bout 6 years worth of defense budget. How did they just lose 6 years of defense budget and manage to pay everyone? Please since I am so uneducated, PLEASE PLEASE explain this to me.

And next you claim that I said the trillians weren't unaccounted for. Did you even read any of my posts at all????????????? I think it's time to rethink the education part.

First off, Donald Rumsfeld announced on 10. September 2001 that the Pentagon has lost 2.3 Trillion dollars. A rather large sum of money, yet this story quietly dissapeared.

You make it sound like that popped up for the first time on September 10th, but that's misleading. Rumsfeld and others had mentioned this before then, going back months. So:


February 12th 2001
The inspector general of the Pentagon said there are 2.3 trillion dollars in items that they can't quite account for...
www.pbs.org...


And:


June 3rd 2001
Secretary Rumsfeld Media Availability en route to Turkey

If there weren't some glitch, something going on where we aren't working right, why would there be 128 studies saying our acquisition system is broken? Why would the GAO and Senator Byrd announce that we can't locate $2.6 trillion worth of transactions and documents if things were good?
www.defenselink.mil...


And in the next few months the amount lost supposedly dropped, too:


DoD financial experts, Zakheim said, are making good progress reconciling the department's "lost" expenditures, trimming them from a prior estimated total of $2.3 trillion to $700 billion. And, he added, the amount continues to drop. www.defenselink.mil...

Would that be this Dov Zekheim?
Is it true that he has dual citizanship?
Is it true that he was a member of PNAC?
His fingerprints are all around the 9/11 crimescene, metaphorically speaking.
How convenient that money that 'is not lost' is being accounted for by a man with not only the motive but the means to manipulate the system to further his agenda.

Israel offers citizenship to anyone Jewish. That doesn't make them Israeli or that they have allegiance to Israel more than the US. It's simply an honorary symbol. Most Jews have dual-citizenship and it's kind of their way of paying respect to their homeland. There is nothing sinister about it.

Nor is there about PNAC. It's a neo-conservative group. And while most of us don't like their ideals, it does not make them some evil diabolical group just because they believe in hvaing a more global community (which is inevitable). And being conservative, of course they want to be at the top.

And I will stress once again, as was stated at that same time that the original quote was taken, that does not mean the money will never be accounted for. It just takes so long to get through the paper work that it takes several years to find out where it went. And Rummy's whole point was that he felt we needed to CHANGE the system to get rid of these problems because it can and has lead to fraud. If someone embezzles money, they won't be detected until years later due to all the red tape and outdated methods used for accounting.
