Pentagon fails its first-ever audit, official says
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The Pentagon has failed what is being called its first-ever comprehensive audit, a senior official said on Thursday, finding U.S. Defense Department accounting discrepancies that could take years to resolve.
“We failed the audit, but we never expected to pass it,” Deputy Secretary of Defense Patrick Shanahan told reporters, adding that the findings showed the need for greater discipline in financial matters within the Pentagon.
So let’s get this straight. They don’t do an audit for generations, as required by law. Then the Pentagon fails an audit the first time it is done. Then no one is charged with a crime and the whole thing is whitewashed, despite losing TRILLIONS in taxpayer money.
Let’s celebrate the good ol boys network, where failure is rewarded, and criminals get to run free to commit theft, chaos, murder and mayhem.
