PentAgon, not PentEgon. Penta is Greek for the number 5, like the 5 sides of the Pentagon, you moron.

They never found found the money that went missing under GWB, did they Groucho? I wonder where it went. I know if you found it, you'd spend the whole pile on Cheetos and lube, but I do wonder where it went.

Congress approved the 1st Bush budget in May 2001 for the budget year 2002

WASHINGTON {AP}— A divided Congress approved a final 2002 budget Thursday as moderate Democrats supplied pivotal support for a measure clearing a path for President Bush's goals of cutting taxes and reining spending.

The Senate gave final congressional approval to the $1.95 trillion fiscal plan by a mostly party line 53-47 vote. In a chamber divided 50-50 between the two parties, the difference was that while two Republicans voted against the GOP-written blueprint, five Democrats supported it.


So far Ms. McKinny only identifies years of Clinton budget problems.....

We already know he didn't balance anything

On September 10, 2001, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld admitted that the Pentagon had lost, by the estimate he chose to use for his speech, 2.3 trillion dollars. Many of you good readers know about this, and are asking where the money went. That's a good question, but what really intrigues me is:

Where did it come from?

If you add up the entire US defense budgets from 1996 to 2001, you only come up with circa 1.6 trillion. Yet, according to Rummy, not only was that much money lost, but an ADDITIONAL 700 BILLION dollars has disappeared. Remember, we're talking about 2.3 trillion dollars "missing."

Exact figures very by source, but are close to each other, so I'll deal in round numbers. To come up with 2.3 trillion dollars of military spending, you have to add up all the defense budgets from about 1991 to 2001. For all those years, the Pentagon spent hundreds of billions and didn't get a single receipt, didn't account for a single dime? Not possible, and no one's claiming that it happened. The missing money was part of some budget, but it's a number bigger than the defense budgets we're to believe it's a "part" of, so it was a part of some OTHER budget, one we don't know about.

1996 through 2001 is a lot of years for the Government Accounting Office (GAO) to fail to notice that the entire defense budget went missing. I don't believe they did fail to notice it, because the missing money wasn't on the books to begin with. It couldn't have been; it's more money than we gave them.

This is not an accounting error. We know the soldiers and sailors got paid, the tanks and planes got bought, and the missiles got purchased, because the companies that made them cashed the checks, and the banks issued statements showing that the money went out and to whom it went. We know that most of that money got properly accounted for, because the GAO and OMB have been checking figures, making recommendations for savings, etc., and would have spotted a gap of any real size. We also suspect the usual drugs, cars, mansions, and hookers of all ages and sexes. But all these only add up to the official hundreds of billions, not the missing thousands of billions.

Who was president during those years?


Looking for some facts from CRAnky...

cranky must be one of those 9/11 truthers and yes.... Moonbat, you brought up 9/11...

No talking points or misinformation Groucho, those are your specialities, and I leave them to you.

What year did the money go missing from the military coffers, and who was ultimately responsible, as commander in chief of the military, at that time?

Also, this is the third and final time I'm saying it: You're complaining that the Corzine isn't being reported, I mentioned that Rumsfeld's report came out on 9/10, explaining it's short lifespan in the headlines. I wasn't linking the two, you moron.

Hey fellow gentleman politifaker:

We're talking about some problems you had with Clinton's accountants at the pentagon.... I think that's fairly well established . Even Cythnia McClueless can only mention Clinton budget years....

If you want to discuss Corzine, which up to this point you haven't....There's a politifake set up just for that.

Now what was your problem again with Clinton accounting?

I think you've discovered where that Clinton surplus wasn't as well...

This story seemed to have cranky's panties in a bunch... But he disappeared once he was shown how teabagged he is.... He's still hurling his non-starters in comments.
