Reps to Pentagon: Prepare for First-Ever Audit or Lose Money

Move over, “Audit the Fed!”

An anti-war California liberal and a Texas conservative who once spoke approvingly about impeaching President Barack Obama are demanding an immediate audit of the Pentagon.

The bipartisan team is introducing legislation Thursday that would reduce funds to spending areas the Department of Defense says are unauditable.

This is pointless

The black budget programs are exempt from review by law, so what's the point? All they have to do is say that missing 900 quadrillion dollars was allocated to classified projects. Case closed, thank you for your time. Not even the Commander in Chief knows what the money goes to. And anyone who tries to ask about it gets their head blown off in public like JFK did.

They better have their "drone insurance" paid up.

Next thing you will hear is they are going to audit the CIA.

It is hard to imagine a more stupid or more dangerous way of making decisions than by putting those decisions in the hands of people that pay no price for being wrong.

Wait, what?

Congress is going to do it's job?

You were supposed to forget about that.

The 2.3 trillion was announced missing on Sept. 10, 2001. The next day was 9/11, and the story about the missing money -- went missing. Probably just a coincidence. But are you sure you want to bring up the subject again? The next distraction-event might be nuclear.
