Pentagon Loses Track of $800 Million

Yahoo News

The Defense Logistics Agency has 25,000 employees and processes 100,000 orders a day from the military and other federal agencies, for everything from food and fuel to maps and medical supplies.

According to Politico, the $40 billion-a-year logistics agency failed to document construction projects worth $800 million in 2016 alone, raising serious questions about the ongoing audit of the Pentagon that is scheduled to be completed this year. 

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA), who has long pushed for a comprehensive audit of the Defense Department, said, “If you can’t follow the money, you aren’t going to be able to do an audit.”

    1. Just look at how filthy rich all the government stooges are

      like they earned it all?

      everyone knows the answer , and yet we all still aint hung em

  1. Only 800 million….?

    That was a close one.

    I thought it said 800 trillion….

    Well I know where its at…

    Its in the lost and found department at the DOD.

    Right next to the bins with keys, wallets and golf clubs.

    I call dibs.

  2. “If you can’t follow the money, you aren’t going to be able to do an audit.”

    And if you’re foolish enough to try, you’ll end up like the Pentagon auditors on 9/11.

  3. 800 million? Really? Are they trying to say that the DoD is actually IMPROVING?!?!? In their accountability? Whatever happened to the unaccounted-for $2.3 trillion from 2001? 800M is a drop in the bucket.
