Pentagon Fails Its First-Ever Audit

After generations of being a black hole down which money goes, never to return, a team of 1,200 auditors tried to give the Pentagon its first ever comprehensive audit, just to see where all that money went. Unsurprisingly, it went poorly, and was declared a failure.

How bad the failure was is something of a mystery at this point, with officials refusing to disclose the exact results, or even ballpark how much money is unaccounted for. The only clue to the sheer scope of the matter is that they believe it will take “years” to sort out.

 

And if there was one thing more dependable than the Pentagon failing an audit and missing an undisclosed, but vast, amount of money, it’s officials downplaying the matter. Deputy Defense Secretary Pat Shanahan told reporters that the Pentagon “never expected to pass it” in the first place.

Indeed, Shanahan insisted that even though the Pentagon failed the audit, the fact that they even bothered to do an audit at all “is substantial,” and shows effort toward compliance. That said, he said the issue of audits is “irritating to me.”

  1. While I appreciate the subject and this serves as a “door-opener” for me to delve into some of my own research – have to say this was a hard article to follow, even as short as it is. All of the ads (?) placed throughout the length of the page was a huge & almost dizzying distraction, to say the least.

    1. Thank you for sharing your perspective, and I am sorry that the two ads in that article were a bit too much for you. I assure you I would love to have no ads, but it is necessary to keep this site up. The alternative would be no more TLAV. Eventually with enough people-support, those will be the first to go. In addition, TLAV has much fewer ads than most all other sites. As for the article, it seems very lucid, specific and to the point from my end, but as always, I will consider your thoughts.

  2. Great article. I will be dealing with a few of these issues as well..
