State Department Lost Track Of $6 Billion

A State Department Inspector General's report found that auditors were unable to account for at least $6 billion in spending over the past six years, a third of which related to contracts supporting the U.S. mission in Iraq. Thirty-three of the 115 contracts related to Iraq were missing altogether, which accounted for $2.1 billion in spending. The Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement lost track of a $1 billion contract in Afghanistan where the CIA operates the largest international heroin trafficking ring in the world. Where did the money go? Did we ever learn what happened to the more than $2 trillion in lost Defense spending that former Secretary Donald Rumfeld announced the day before a plane supposedly crashed into the ring of the Pentagon and killed most of the Defense people working in the controller's office who raised questions about this missing money?

I'll tell you where it went. It went into the pockets of the corrupt, elitists scumbags who make up the military/industrial complex. They're the people whose businesses and executives are maxing out political contributions to our corrupt politicians every election cycle and finding other corrupt ways of funneling money into the politicians' bank accounts to make them all multi-millionaires. Most members of Congress are the recipients of illicit transfers into their bank accounts. Check their financial disclosure statements before and during the time they entered the Congress. As incomplete as their reporting entails, it gives you enough information to figure out that virtually everyone who becomes a member of Congress becomes a multi-millionaire regardless of how little money they had before entering Congress. Members of Congress no longer care about what you think; they only care about the people enriching them and their family members. The American voter has become irrelevant in the American political system. A Republican form of government envisioned by our founders exists only in the figment of our imaginations.

Horribly true, Gary. I do give Indiana Republican primary voters props for voting out Lugar, and will always wonder whether Richard Mourdock might have proven to be the exception, if Indiana general voters had given him the chance.
