I KNOW the IG isnt perfect, there should be a link in my thread that includes the GAO's assessment of the mess. It has never been a secret that the
Pentagon has had problems keeping track of money in a way that would satisfy a private CPA....and THATS the majority of the problem.
Thank you for responding.
First, I would hardly call the IG altering and destroying working papers less than perfect.. it is illegal and is a CRIME (a federal crime, in this
Now, tell me what basis you have for making the statements you've made that there are no missing funds?
Maybe the reasons that the IG and Rumsfeld gave?
Our financial systems are decades old. According to some estimates, we cannot track $2.3 trillion in transactions. We cannot share information
from floor to floor in this building because it's stored on dozens of technological systems that are inaccessible or incompatible.
and the same reason given at Rumsfeld’s confirmation hearing?
Tell me why, since the IG report was consistent with Rumsfeld story and the story given at his confirmation hearing, would the DoD IG feel
compelled to “alter and destroy” working papers from their audit of it?
Senator Byrd: That audit report found that out of $7.6 trillion in department-level accounting interest, 2.3 trillion in entries either did not
contain adequate documentation or were improperly reconciled or were made to force buyer and seller data to agree
Perhaps the final report's conclusions (Rumsfeld's story) were not supported by the facts in the case?
Edit to add: I understand that waste is a big issue in the DoD - just as it is in every government agency - if your beef is with this waste, I can
totally understand that... but not everything within DoD can be blamed on government waste... this is one of them.
