This may be old news - if so, I apologize. But it is interesting even if it is.
Today, I was reading a magazine in a waiting room. I can't remember the name of the magazine - some kind of republican-leaning political
The article was in the March, 2012 edition of that magazine.
Apparently, an estimated 2.3 trillion dollars have gone missing. I'm assuming this has already been discussed given that the article was from
March.. But I found something I wanted to share.
The article described how that number could be considerably more.. A sign that the government accounting office is in such disarray and the auditing
techniques are so out of sync with the DOD in general that this kind of thing should never have happened.. The article used some pretty brash language
- saying things like, now I'm paraphrasing - "If this had happened to a company the board of directors would be out on their ear and the
shareholders would be demanding new leadership".
I'm sure most of us probably couldn't agree more with that statement.
Some people have argued that alot of this missing money eventually goes to fund black projects, experimental technology, black budget biotechnology,
etc.. It could be but what I don't understand is why there is so little media coverage of all this.
Earlier today, I was trying to google the article or, at minimum, a news story talking about this but I couldn't find anything. All I could find was
a story from 2001.
It turns out the day before September 11th, 2001, Donald Rumsfeld told the American people that approximately 2.3 trillion dollars had been
unaccounted for - possibly more. This was later pointed out by the 9/11 truth movement and we still have no clue where it went. A mistake you would
think the government would've learned from right? Negative..
Now, notice the dollar amount... 2001 - DOD can't account for 2.3 trillion. 2012 - DOD can't account for 2.3 trillion. And it could easily be
trillions more and we would never have any way to know.
This tells me that the DOD has been using this kind of technique for decades to keep certain projects, programs and technology secret. The DOD budget
usually includes money for black programs though - some call it "The Black Budget". Not even Congress knows, nor will they ever know, where that
So if the black budget is accounted for in the annual military budgeting process, how do trillions of dollars end up missing for no apparent
Why isn't this all over the news and why aren't American taxpayers demanding answers from their government?
Is it just a coincidence that the estimated dollar amount of the unaccounted-for funds is the same as it was in 2001? Is the DOD using this as a
tactic as a whitewash? And, if so, what in the world is the DOD doing with that kind of money that they want to keep hidden?
I'll keep searching for that magazine article I saw and any other related news stories on the subject from March 2012. In the meantime, what is your
take on all this guys & gals?
Is the government secretly preparing for something big later on in 2012? A sign of simple incompetence?
