  1. Government is exempt from their own regulations, audits and laws.

    Wonder what the new 87,000 IRS agent will do?
    You don’t have to imagine what trouble and prosecution would be if we the people failed one IRS Audit let alone five audits.

    We are to be transparent while the government is secretive and hides 100s of $Billions of their expenditures of “our” tax money.
    How much is government corruption? 20%, 30%,50% ????

  2. REALLY?!?

    …every time I get a records audit, DLA/FDA/USDA/bunch of A’s spends a week with a microscope and uses a colonoscope to shove it so far in they can see what last night’s dinner was.

    Sure would be nice if the Pentagon would apply the same standards to themselves, n’est-ce pas?

    …Bet Brad knows what I’m on about…

  3. Remember, on September 10, 2001, Donald Rumsfeld report that the Pentagon could not account for 2.3 trillion dollars. The next day nothing else was ever said about that.

  4. SNS
    We only see the penny pinchers show up on IDPO orders, 5 year contracts, or FMS Contracts, Foreign Military Sales. And it ALWAYS comes down to shipping costs.
    Speaken or Foreign Military Sales, wouldn’t you think there would be a bunch of them for the Uke? Nope. Never seen one. Regardless of who’s paying for it. Makes you suspicious.

  5. The American Industrial War Complex has been skimming taxpayer funds for decades.
    Nothing here comes as a surprise. I don’t blame the Pentagon as much as the politicians that encourage this crap. They most likely get their cut as well.
