Here’s further proof that government spending is completely out of control. Shouldn’t the Pentagon be able to pass a basic audit? No one seems to be in charge.
Legal Insurrection reported:
Pentagon Cannot Pass a $6.5 TRILLION Audit Due to Horrible Bookkeeping
The Department of Defense inspector general found that the Pentagon cannot maintain proper bookkeeping on expenses, which means they have not audited $6.5 TRILLION they spent on wars, equipment, etc. Lorin Venable, the assistant inspector general wrote:
Army and Defense Finance and Accounting Service Indianapolis personnel did not adequately support $2.8 trillion in third quarter adjustments and $6.5 trillion in yearend adjustments made to the Army General Fund data during FY2015 financial statement compilation. We conducted this audit in accordance with generlly accepted government auditing standards.
$6.5 TRILLION in ONE year. Could you imagine what the IRS would do to a private company if they did this? How about an average American?
That’s a little disturbing, isn’t it?
