The Pentagon was audited and couldn’t account for 61% of its assets. If a company did this, the executives would be in jail. How can Congress demand to review President Trump’s tax returns, when they can’t even keep track of their own funds?

Even as this happened, there is some PFC somewhere getting smoked because he didn’t tie a dummy cord to his NODs or some sailor is getting accused of gundecking because he used a 4 inch screwdriver when the MRC said it was supposed to be a 6 inch.

And if an FFL makes a typo they put them out of business.

Huh, I remember in the ancient times when I was playing Army we had 3 sets of equipment… One we actually used/took to the field/deployed with, one that was the “inspection set” that was kept locked up and hidden only to be laid out for the infrequent inspections and one that was the “trade stock” where we’d trade with others to get equipment we needed since “supply” was “less reliable” a source/the BN CO would spend our budgets for more field rotations at the expense of maintenance…

So, given the “bottom up” view, it is less surprising that the Pentagon has no clue where a lot of their stuff is… That does not even begin to account for what was “lost” when they fled Afghanistan

Did they forget to write off all the “assets” left behind in Afghanistan or those allegedly shipped to Ukraine?
