Pentagon audit


The Pentagon failed an independent audit of its accounting systems for the sixth consecutive year. Auditors found that half of the department’s claimed assets could not be accounted for. Required by law, the annual audit assesses the record-keeping processes for the Pentagon’s weapons systems, military personnel and property around the world. Approximately 1,600 auditors visited over 700 sites for the investigation. The annual exercise has helped the vast bureaucracy locate and tally arms, saving money and making it easier to find and ship weapons and technology to Ukraine. On this episode of 360 View, Scottie Nell Hughes asks her panel of experts (Robert Patillo, Political Analyst; Angie Wong, Co-host of the Final Countdown; Col. Rob Maness, host of The Rob Maness Show) how we can continue to write a blank check to a department that can’t account for what has already been spent.
