Calls for Pentagon to stop faking accounts

8 posts in this topic

(Reuters) - Four senators have called on the Defense Department to end a practice that involves deliberately inserting false numbers into the Pentagon's accounting ledgers and financial reports.

The senators sent a letter to Defense Department Comptroller Robert Hale urging the Pentagon to stop an accounting practice widely known as "plugging." The letter, dated June 12, 2014, said that plugs are fictitious dollar amounts inserted into financial ledgers to make it appear that the Pentagon’s books balance.

The letter (1.usa.gov/1kwEY2X) was sent by Charles Grassley, Tom Coburn, Thomas Carper and Ron Johnson. The four senators have been pressing for a solution to severe accounting problems at the Pentagon, whose spending accounts for the largest chunk by far of the annual federal budget approved by Congress. Grassley is the senior Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee; the others hold top positions on the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee.

Into projects that are not supervised nor authorized by the legislative.

Looks like the Pentagon is converting itself into a uncontrolled entity... something like a state within the state.

Oh heck, what is the Pentagon going to do if it cannot employ Smoke & Mirrors in its accounting procedures?

They can't do that, it would mean having to reveal the Stargate program, and the world isn't ready to know about the Goa'uld!

That's Scary. .. and then we have the CIA , independent and uncontrolled by design. Both of them 'networking' with BIG Money and Business.

Put them all together and we get our " Foreign Policy " ? :blink:
