Did any of you actually bother to read the IG report? Because it doesn’t contain a single substantiated example of anything actually going missing. The vast majority of problems appear to result from multiple counting of transfers. For example one system transfers $50 billion from one finance code to another. So that’s $50 billion out of finance code A, plus $50 billion into finance code B. A grand total of $100 billion that is probably documented manually somewhere but not in the automated record keeping systems. Or $50 billion is taken in by finance code A, and when funds are released, transferred to finance code B. Sloppy, yes, but massive multiple counting is the only way you can have trillions of unaccounted transfers with a budget of less than a trillion dollars.

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
