Earlier this year, a Michigan State University economist, working with graduate students and a former government official, found $21 trillion in unauthorized spending in the departments of Defense and Housing and Urban Development for the years 1998-2015.
The work of Mark Skidmore and his team, which included digging into government websites and repeated queries to U.S. agencies that went unanswered, coincided with the Office of Inspector General, at one point, disabling the links to all key documents showing the unsupported spending. (Luckily, the researchers downloaded and stored the documents.)
Now, the Department of Defense has announced it will conduct the first department-wide, independent financial audit in its history (read the Dec. 7 announcement here).
The Defense Department did not say specifically what led to the audit. But the announcement came four days after Skidmore discussed his team’s findings on USAWatchdog, a news outlet run by former CNN and ABC News correspondent Greg Hunter.

Missing Trillions

Rumsfeld Buries Admission of Missing 2+ Trillion Dollars in 9/10/01 Press Conference

On September 10, 2001, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld held a press conference to disclose that over $2,000,000,000,000 in Pentagon funds could not be accounted for. Rumsfeld stated: “According to some estimates we cannot track $2.3 trillion in transactions.” According to a report by the Inspector General, the Pentagon cannot account for 25 percent of what it spends. 1   2 

The entire money supply (M3) of the United States is about $14 trillion.
You can’t be “missing” twice the amount of what actually exists

  1. Hope this won’t turn out to be yet another “Clinton investigation”: “We noticed that the Deep State has stolen 29 trillion for back ops in order to create ISIS, overthrow the Ukrainian government, attempt a (failed) color revolution in Iran, overthrow Venezuela’s democratically elected government, demonize Russia, and more. But we conclude that no reasonable prosecutor would file charges, therefore we’re dropping the case.”

  2. Face it. That $ is gone and no way to get it back. I’m sure a good portion of it went to private and government state of the art survival bunkers. This may well be the trigger to get WWIII going. The Pentagon and accountability only works in practice if there is a “no” in the statement. The distraction worked on 9/11.

  3. “The entire money supply (M3) of the United States is about $14 trillion. You can’t be “missing” twice the amount of what actually exists.” Oh Yeah? If I wrote a check for twice as much in my bank account, it would be called a hot check.

    • Ever hear about the secret space command? No I am not joking. Black funds also go into building deep underground military bases (DUMB). Remember the aircraft full of cash Obama sent to Iran? I’ll bet there are no paper receipts on it.

      • That was Iran’s money. They bought a whole bunch of military stuff from us. But then a revolution toppled that government, and we opposed the new one. We didn’t give them the weapons they bought from us, but we kept their money. That’s what Obama gave back. It was never ours in the first place.

    • It couldn’t. Someone would’ve noticed, you cant keep that amount of money secret. It would require so many people to work to keep it hidden that someone would’ve leaked information roughly.. 7 years ago.
      Its likely the person who put this story together got a bit confused. There is a large amount of money unaccounted for. Trillions of dollars. but nowhere near 29 trillion.

  4. It is literally impossible for that much money to be missing. I think someone who wrote this story got confused. Because that’s more money than the entire country has. People would’ve noticed that going missing way before now.
    There is a substantial amount of money unaccounted for, don’t get me wrong. its a few trillion and that’s really not good. But its nowhere near 29 trillion.
