Audit Reveals The Pentagon Doesn’t Know Where $6.5 Trillion Dollars Has Gone

warBy Jay Syrmopoulos

A new Department of Defense Inspector General’s report, released last week, has left Americans stunned at the jaw-dropping lack of accountability and oversight. The glaring report revealed the Pentagon couldn’t account for $6.5 trillion dollars worth of Army general fund transactions and data, according to a report by the Fiscal Times.

The Pentagon, which has been notoriously lax in its accounting practices, has never completed an audit, would reveal how the agency has specifically spent the trillions of dollars allocated for wars, equipment, personnel, housing, healthcare and procurements allotted to them by Congress.

Beginning in 1996 all federal agencies were mandated by law to conduct regular financial audits. However, the Pentagon has NEVER complied with that federal law. In 20 years, it has never accounted for the trillions of dollars in taxpayer funds it has spent, in part because “fudging” the numbers has become standard operating procedure at the Department of Defense, as revealed in a 2013 Reuters investigation by Scot Paltrow.

According to the report by the Fiscal Times:

An increasingly impatient Congress has demanded that the Army achieve “audit readiness” for the first time by Sept. 30, 2017, so that lawmakers can get a better handle on military spending. But Pentagon watchdogs think that may be mission impossible, and for good reason…

The Defense Finance and Accounting Service (DFAS), the behemoth Indianapolis-based agency that provides finance and accounting services for the Pentagon’s civilian and military members, could not provide adequate documentation for $6.5 trillion worth of year-end adjustments to Army general fund transactions and data.

The DFAS has the sole responsibility for paying all DOD military and personnel, retirees and annuitants, along with Pentagon contractors and vendors. The agency is also in charge of electronic government initiatives, including within the Executive Office of the President, the Department of Energy and the Departing of Veterans Affairs.

While there is nothing in the IG’s report specifying that the money has been stolen, the mere fact that the Pentagon can’t account for how it spent the money reveals a potentially far greater problem than simple theft alone.

For every transaction, a so-called “journal voucher” that provides serial numbers, transaction dates and the amount of the expenditure is supposed to be produced. The report specifies that the agency has done such a poor job in providing documentation of their transactions, that there is no way to actually know how $6.5 trillion dollars has been spent. Essentially, the government has no way of knowing how the Pentagon has spent the trillions of taxpayer dollars allocated by Congress for national defense.

In turn, employees of the DFAS were routinely told by superiors to take “unsubstantiated change actions” commonly referred to as “plugging” the numbers. These “plugs” – which amounted to falsifying financial records – were then used to create the appearance that the military’s financial data matched that of the U.S. Treasury Department’s numbers when discrepancies in the financial data couldn’t be accounted for, according to the Reuters investigation.

According to that Reuters investigation:

For two decades, the U.S. military has been unable to submit to an audit, flouting federal law and concealing waste and fraud totaling billions of dollars.

Linda Woodford spent the last 15 years of her career inserting phony numbers in the U.S. Department of Defense’s accounts.

Every month until she retired in 2011, she says, the day came when the Navy would start dumping numbers on the Cleveland, Ohio DFAS…. Using the data they received, Woodford and her fellow accountants there set about preparing monthly reports to square the Navy’s books with the U.S. Treasury’s…. And every month, they encountered the same problem. Numbers were missing. Numbers were clearly wrong. Numbers came with no explanation of how the money had been spent or which congressional appropriation it came from.

While many of the problems occurred due to bookkeeping errors rather than actual financial losses, the DFAS has failed to provide the necessary tracking information essential to performing an accurate audit of Pentagon spending and obligations, according to the IG’s report.

“Army and Defense Finance and Accounting Service Indianapolis personnel did not adequately support $2.8 trillion in third quarter adjustments and $6.5 trillion in year-end adjustments made to Army General Fund data during FY 2015 financial statement compilation,” wrote Lorin T. Venable, the assistant inspector general for financial management and reporting. “We conducted this audit in accordance with generally accepted government auditing standards.”

The Pentagon has a chronic failure to keep track of its money – how much it has, how much it pays out and how much is wasted or stolen. Adding to the appearance of impropriety is the fact that thousands of documents that should be on file have been removed and disappeared without any reasonable explanation.

DFAS “did not document or support why the Defense Departmental Reporting System . . . removed at least 16,513 of 1.3 million records during Q3 FY 2015. As a result, the data used to prepare the FY 2015 AGF third quarter and year-end financial statements were unreliable and lacked an adequate audit trail,” according to the IG’s report stated.

The accounting errors and manipulated numbers, though obviously problems in their own right, highlight a far greater problem for the Defense Department than only bad recording keeping and wasteful spending habits. In reality, they are a representation of the poor decision making, and lack of oversight and accountability that plague our nation’s government as a whole.

While the Department of Defense can’t account for $6.5 trillion dollars of taxpayer funds, in 2014 there were 47 million people, including over 15 million children, living in poverty in the U.S. – %15 of the U.S. population, which is the largest total number in poverty since records began being kept 52 years ago.

Please share this story if you are appalled by the fact that there are Americans that are homeless and hungry, including U.S. combat veterans — while the government is unable to account for $6.5 trillion dollars of taxpayer money.

      Consice, straight to the point, and exact.
      The majority of this nations money goes toward defense, and he way they are handling it not only should they be removed, they should face imprisonment.
      You mentioned crazy on our part. By our response to this grand theft we reward these criminals at the top.
      Rumsfeld made a similar admission in around 2000, 2001.
      He openly told congress they couldn’t account for 2.2 trillion.
      Nobody batted an eye. We no longer have a government, we have a mafia.

        and they didn’t have to see all those Americans. They could have just brazenly stolen it like they normally do.

      • No Bull Nonofit

        Agree. But don’t forget your opponent’s were and still are humans too. American Zionist international policy causes polarisation of people and creates war and profit. If people in all countries wake up to the fact that the 1% who control our money and form our ideas through schools and media have only their interest in mind, there could actually be peace. The world has enough resources for us all to live plentiful natural lives. The hate of socialism in US society is so ingrained as is Islam phobia when frankly, it is the Zionist movement that is both the seen and hidden hand which dips into the federal reserve.

      • disqus_BAvz0LV7zw

        Your ignorance is worst than grade school student. Senators and Congressmen don’t hold money. The Treasury does. Congress only appropriates money to be funded to the different department. Those are figures, not money. The money are held in the bank accounts under the Dept, of Treasury. And the GAO must audits those every year to be reported to the American people.

        • used_to_be_a_liberal

          You are correct to a point, but then explain how so much money disappears, why “slush” funds are so large, why far too many of these so-called responsible representatives end up being multi-millionaires, a number of them who have done nothing outside of government, yet become millionaires.

          Really? Audit every year when I just today read a story that Congress was having a devil of a time getting the Army to audit their records going way back to the mid 90’s!! ummm
          What Arthur meant is not that the Treasury doesn’t hole the money, but HOW a bunch of them go in POOR and COME OUT RICH!! Kind of like from “Rags to Riches”, sorta thing!!

        • Common Sense

          It is far better to be silent and thought a fool than to make an incredible naive comment and remove all doubt.
          Do you honestly think the only way money is moved and hidden is the way laws and procedure dictate? You believe audits are performed and the truth is then revealed?
          What world are you living in???
          These guys have more ways of cheating than you realize and your ignorance is just what the corrupt system LOVES.

    What’s interesting to me is that corruption, bribery, extortion, murder, murder for hire, deceit, fudging, lying, etc. etc. is totally pervasive throughout the United States, from top to bottom, White House to Pentagon, Congress to Wall Street, Big Corporations and Big Pharma to States and permeates every level of Local government and Schools. It seems that 99.99% of us are for sale. It seems that 99.99% of us will do anything for money. It seems that those with power will abuse and misuse it no matter what, even when it’s not necessary. It seems that lying whether it’s the lies of Nancy Pelosi or Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama or Jeff Ryan is common and easy. No one’s nose gets longer. The corrupt liars only get richer and more powerful. When humans are stopped by law enforcement, it’s the poor and the young. It seems that the double standard is so ingrained and entrenched that a 9 year old stealing food for dinner, a 9 year old from a home where there’s no food, will get a harsher sentence than that merited by Hillary Clinton’s betrayal of national security and misuse of Taxpayer funds. Cops are killing children, and the most deceitful and dishonest who’ve risen to the “top”, the ones must willing to take your guns, are escorted by weapon carrying cops everywhere they go. The Elite make billions selling drugs and making drugs readily available in the poorest communities and on the streets. Those of us who live in this sordid system raise our voices to protect rights for all, only to be shouted down by the “protesters” hired by the DNC to disrupt Trump’s speeches, who are no different than the thugs of 100-130 years ago who had been hired to disrupt union organizing and union protests. When the Elite can rely on buying everyone who matters or paying common folk to snitch and tattle, disrupt, beat up, kill and harm other common folks, then the Elite have nothing to fear. The Trillions of missing dollars have been stolen, and the bankers know by whom. The money never helped any veterans. That same money could have been used for good, but until Americans stop harming and fighting with each other, we can accomplish nothing.

WHY no one has awoken to this truth is beyond me. There are many of us from the inside disclosing with actual hard evidence and yet no one is listening nor sighting the evidence WE keep displaying.

    2. Kwajalein Atoll, in the MARSHALL Islands

    4. South America.

    … to name a few.

      Got it. Thanks for that. Are you saying that only some insiders at the Pentagon know the exact destination for these trillions? That only those insiders have any control over the monies, and that Washington DC insiders “know” that it’s going on, and every Insider discretely looks the other way to keep the secret from the public. It’s all pretense and phony accounting because these projects (the 6 you name above) are part of our efforts to remain as an Empire over this planet and in synch with off-planet beings (including those with secret bases on Earth). Are there any nonPentagon personnel with access to this information? From what I understand the thoughts are that the expenditures are necessary from the perspective of these Agendas, and that no one is willing to share the existence of these location stations with Americans, setting aside the basic issue of defining what is an American today. There are people on the planet, including in the US and Australia, who have been tracking some of these locstats and projects to the best of our abilities given the absence of clear information in usual sources. If you are part of the disclosures, then, thank you very, very much. Some of us want to know the truth. Some of us are paying attention, truly. As for the 31 sites across the Middle East with the real WMDs, including RAQQA and ALEPPO, are the secret cash funding projects being used to eliminate those sites, as it sounds like regular military bombing is being used to hit the sites, and forgive me for not knowing, but what really is located at those sites, and why are American bombs striking those sites?

      • Peter GNG

        Dear See Janus,

        I am RESTRICTED from disclosing as I too have been threatened again, and again, and I have family ! They can’t kill off people like myself, because WE are a significant threat to them , even as individuals (and our brotherhood (aka ‘The Double Diamonds’) is very, very close – however THEY target our parents, siblings, wives; even our children for those of us with son’s and daughters.

        If you have a private email – please disclose and I will gladly communicate privately with you whatever it is you MUST KNOW ! Unfortunately for me, I KNOW far too much; and I emphasise FAR TOO MUCH !

        Everything I’ve posted is true; lying to you, or anyone for that matter is just flat out wrong. My Great Uncle, and my Grandfather , both remarkable men, held me front, and centre before signing up, “If you know something that is true, you have an obligation to disclose that truth, no matter how they may feel, they are responsible for their reactions, not you – just tell the truth”.

        And that’s what I’m doing. I hope you will email me so I can disclose what it is you seek to know. I have an G+ account (Kyokushin-kai-kan = The Society of The Ultimate Truth).

        P.S. I don’t sleep very well, and haven’t for many years.

  • Common Sense

    In a normal and healthy society, theft and fraud at this magnitude would result everything being stopped IMMEDIATELY and those found guilty to pay the price any of us are held to according to the law. If you took out a loan for jus a few thousands dollars and claimed you couldn’t account for the spending of it and could not pay it back you know exactly what would happen. You would be charged and have to defend yourself in court. More than likely go to jail, or prison. But somehow, the pentagon can claim ignorance and viola, nothing is done. The fact the American people allow this to stand is consent to anything, and I mean ANYTHING, that this rogue government/mafia wants to do.
    Yes, I’m aware of all the well memorized excuses that free us from our responsibility to hold criminals accountable, and that is all they are. Criminals. No different than a terrorists we are all conditioned to fear and hate. We have no problem seeking death for those who kill people by the masses, but when many deaths occur due to drone bombings, grand theft, extortion, undeclared and completely unnecessary wars, it’s okay because somehow when it’s the leaders everything changes. We enter a bizarre alternate world where complete criminality somehow becomes completely acceptable.
    This is the ugly truth that screams us as being the frauds who go along with this kind of madness. We know these people are criminals and we do nothing about it.

    The next time you hear of any crime whatsoever committed by an ordinary citizen, tell yourself, it’s okay, they are allowed to lie, steal or kill because we allow our leaders to do the same.

    IF THE LAW DOES NOT APPLY EQUALLY TO EVERYONE, IT IS NO GOOD FOR ANYONE.

We will never wake everyone so forget that idea completely. We must start small so we can build confidence with our successes. People are suffering from helplessness syndrome and the best cure is reinforcing positive action and success.
        Another smart man once said if we did all the things we are capable of we would truly astound ourselves. Fear keeps us from even attempting sometimes. If we try and fail, we learn what not works, but giving up would make the failure in vain.

        If we find a police chief who would join the cause of true justice, alone it’s a few deputies, lawyer, and judge, we could begin to turn things around. Start small with the little criminals locally. Volunteer to be deputized and work for free. You would be amazed at how effective 100 deputies in uniform just standing there would be Just the visual is all that would be needed. I don’t care how many connections the crook has, they won’t go against those numbers.

        Even the longest journey begins with the first step.

        We have to stop lying to ourselves and dying there is nothing we can do. We can do anything but winning is in the will.

    Corrupt dishonest PATHETIC individuals are running this world….most likely without possessing a soul or conscience…truly sad for their eternity.

  • wandamurline

    6.5 Trillion is 1/3 of our national debt….there should be heads rolling right now. This has got to stop and we simply cannot allow The Clinton Crime Family to move back in to our house because if we do, nothing will change, it will only get worse, because her and Slick Willie will steal us blind.

  • John McClain

    Wouldn’t it be fun to see what Trump would do with this disaster!! HEADS WOULD ROLL…lmao

  • FreeOregon

    Ask Hillary and the Bush family?

    Does the Pentagon share with the CIA?

  • Nina Ferguson

    Why not, the State Department lost $6BILLION on her watch. BUT THIS IS ABSURD!!!!!!!!! $6.5TRILLION???? How much of that was given to the Iranians?

    .
    The taxpayer funded disabled Veterans Administration has spent over
    $20 million on useless artwork & sculptures to decorate their VA offices and lobbies
    and added nearly 40,000 non-care of disabled veteran jobs,…..

    …all this while over a thousand disabled veterans died awaiting needed medical care.

    Remember what happened the day after Donald Rumsfeld “declared war” on money wasted by the military.
    Saying,” in fact it could be a matter of life and death.”
    Then it was 2.3 trillion in transactions that couldn’t be tracked.
    The next day the pentagon was hit by a “plane”.
    Problem solved!

  • Michael

    6.5 trillion missing, and the Marine Corps are pulling parts off of museum  f-18’s to keep them flying.
    Also, the Army has now fallen to the smallest level since before World War II.
    I think we all know were the money is going.

  • D Lll

    The last time they announced trillions of dollars unaccounted for, the office in the pentagon that was investigating it got hit by a plane

  • $500 hammers and toilet seats anyone?

  • RelocationQuotes

    NO BIG DEAL JUST RAISE THE TAXES..

    The State Department misplaced and lost some $6 billion due to the improper filing
    of contracts during the past six years, mainly during the tenure of
    former Secretary of State Hilary Clinton, according to a newly released
    Inspector General report.

  • HDMania

    Didnt Rumsfield say the same thing right before 9 / 11 ?…sounds like the same amount $$ then as it is now..?

  • HDMania

    And right where the missle entered the building is where they kept the $$$ records..coincidence ?

  • southie55

    For sure the money didn’t go for the Vets.

  • HDMania

    Went into someones corrupt pocket..

  • MuslimLuvChrist

    this government is totally corrupt

  • disqus_BAvz0LV7zw

    The GAO must have required annual audits of the Pentagon. All government offices or departments must comply with the annual financial audit every fiscal year. They must comply with the Government Accounting Standard Board. Why is Pentagon exempted from providing that report?
    This is the strangest news I’ve read concerning the accountability of the Pentagon’s financial activities. Has no one even bothered asking that question? When did this criminal activities start? Is it since 2009 up t the present or earlier than that? What about the banks that should have kept that money every time, it had been transferred to the Pentagon. There must be bank records, and the banks could provide that.
    But I bet, many could be multi-billionaires on this. Perhaps a number of them could have enriched their bank accounts. What happened to the 297 general and officers that Obama removed, and replaced with those who agreed with his management style? The accountability office must know that also. The Commander-in-Chief is President Obama who would know activities of this national department. And this anomalies were only fund and discovered during his tenure.

    Dear Bedbugger,

    The “black Ops” you mention are in truth “Unacknowledged Special Access Projects” (USAP’s) governed and managed by an ‘Off Line’ group since detached from the NSA known as ‘ULTRA’. This is WHY Ed left – he accidentally came across accounts and wire transfers he shouldn’t have. These money’s are in fact used for construction. This construction is NOT for here on Earth. I sincerely apologise for my response offending you, however its true – all of it !

    Sincerely,

    • Bedbugger

      No offense taken my friend. No doubt the secret space program has taken up a fair chunk of the money. Gary McKinnon spotted a list of ‘non-terrestial officers’ when he was browsing around the Pentagram. He also discovered two spaceships, named USSS LeMay and the USSS Hillenkoetter. Luckily for Gary he was let off the hook with a smack on the wrist and gagging order.

      • Peter GNG

        Dear Bedbugger,

        I know because my Great Uncle was a Major GENERAL. I must correct you though on one of the names of the two Main Fleet carriers. The ‘Le MAY’ is correct however the other was the KRISTOFFERSON. His son , now elderly can tell you some pretty amazing truths on this also.

        Gary is also a pleasant chap, and bright , much like Edward, and Julian. RUMSFELD even presented a specific group of USMC members their awards at Station No. “?”.

        Thought you might be interested.

        P.S. Gary is NOT off the hook – he works for THEM now – that is WHAT CAMERON negotiated with OBAMA (although it was Jacob, and David whom really did ALL the negotiating) – CAMERON and OBAMA is the smoke screen, ‘Punch and Judy’ charade to the public!

        Sincerely,

  • JIMBO

    Remember. As the report states the defense department is the responsible financial office responsible for establishing and maintaining proper accounting audit trails for the Executive Office Of the President. The Commander In Chief

    of the Armed forces of this country. Kind of makes you wonder.

  • Isabella

    Maybe, they build underground safe shelters for the elite ones. Like, Washington – Colorado,North Carolina and others we, ordinary americans have no idea.Closed Wallmart,supply them with the necessary nourishments. So,if any natural catastrofe,ISIS attacks, they are OK. At least that I red in YouTube. Coud be tru??

  • Joe Pewter

    people should study freemasons/illuminati would then relize how this stuff happens an its connections..why its mostly ignored..then others not included will blackmail or demand a political position as payment gov/senate even Pres become elected by design from rockafellers/Soros others of one world order agendas..lotta detail of actions/sequences there i believe it easily

  • Behind every blade of glass!

    Interesting, very interesting!! The very first time I laid eyes on that Richard Bryan, I knew he was dirty! You could just feel the corruption seething from this guy and the same with Harry Reid. What we have going on in this country is NOTHING MORE, THAN A BUNCH OF DIRTY-THEIVING GANGSTERS from the top to the bottom!
    It was only apparent that there was more going on with that Bundy’s ranch ordeal than what they were saying, but I thought the Bundy’s were mormon’s, too??
    The only thing that would be nice for you to do – is ‘clean up the post somewhat’ to make it a little easier to read! Everyone needs to read this – to get a better understanding of what’s happening inasmuch that is some very serious COVER-UPS taking place – right in plain sight!!
    Pretty much sums up what the BIG RUCKUS was all about with the Bundy’s Ranch – if it’s true that these two old goats were “cutting deals and getting paid for something they don’t even own”!!

  • Behind every blade of glass!

    NOW, its mislaid and misspoken in place of “theft and lies”! They must really have themselves convinced that “WE ARE STUPID”!!

  • disqus_BAvz0LV7zw

    Every governmental department has LEGAL OBLIGATIONS to present audited financial reports in accordance with the Generally Accounting Standard Board. Those who don’t comply or in violations of the standard operations must be in jail. It is the law.
    But the problem of our government at present is LAWLESS! That is how they operate. That is why we the people the ultimate decision makers must change these crooks running the system.

    • Mike

      Amen brother. Hillary ain’t going to do it! Trump might!

  • Mike

    Go back and investigate every person who had access to the accounts and lost their financial statements. That would be a start.
    I’d venture to say better than half went to Isis and other terrorist groups. By the way? Where was all these past and current administrations in holding the DOD and other agencies accountable?
    Where was congressional oversight?
    No wonder we’re in debt over $21 trillion.

    As a retired mil. & civilan analyst, the funds are being used to chem-spray the entire globe literally. This program was militarized in the 80’s and morphed into Climate Sparying. Haarp and other programs are wrapped into this. Rmemeber the bird flocks suddenly dying in mid-flight? the chemicals were inhaled, and their lungs froze at the spongy level.

    Try looking in the pockets of some of the UN personnel, when they are not made to account for where the money is spent it makes it easier to (borrow) They should have to complete an audit or face jail time for stealing

  • Ronald Starkey

    The money went to support the super secret secret service with a name like “The Company”

  • magnetik

    They got away with stealing trillions before 9/11 with no accountability…why wouldn’t they do it again? and again… and again

  • Nohwhat

    Don’t they offer medication for this

  • #GaryMcKinnon
    @Freegary

  • Coonhound

    anyone recall what happened the last time it came out the DOD was missing trillions? ((Rumsfeld)) made the announcement on Sept 10, 2001.

  • Barbara W Sox

    Of course, the Pentagon doesn’t know where it has gone. But we do, it has been stolen by our President and his cronies. No matter what deal was made in l979, after going to war in Iraq, and after losing so many of our soldiers, and after all the US $$ spent on this issue, any $$ we owed them became null and void. Any missing money, including the $400,000.00 and the over $1,000,000,000.00 has all gone the same way, to the Islamic terrorists so they can make weapons of mass destruction to bring over to America. Obama himself should be impeached. And I am beginning to think that all of our elected officials should also be impeached, since they did not know, and could not stop him from taking this heinous action. And the Pentagon should know where the money is. I am certain that I could do a much better job of taking care of the US Tax $$. b.sox

  • You are awesome! Thanks.

  • Strayhorse

    Dark ops, Offworlfd Star ops, ISIS/ISIL/AlQuida, State Dept/CIA ops, Geo-Engineering, Domestic ops, and NGO payoffs/kickbacks.
