i think they'd be more interested in a story about the time machine trump used to go back to 2010:

In 2010, Congress included a requirement in the National Defense Authorization Act that gave the military "an extra seven years to clean up the books and get ready," as Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa said last year....

It costs tons of money. There are several of the big accounting firms on this.

Funny how while never have been audited, and having YEARS to prep for this, the Republican Congress still gave them an addition $700 BILLION.

IMO, an audit will be a waste of money. there are so many secret projects the pentagon is involved with that even a president (any president) will never know about them. they're that secret.

It's Academi nowadays. Blackwater Worldwide became Xe Services in 2009, then Academi in 2011.

Obama. He's the one who signed it into law. I doubt Trump even knows it's happening.

Have only seen the article on OANN so far. I wonder if opposition media will touch this story or be more interested in what Trump eats for Christmas dinner.
Trump didn't order it.

As others have noted, Congress passed it when Obama was president, and Obama signed it.

This was reported by all the usual news media at the time, it's not their fault you were taking a nap and missed it.

But I agree, it will be VERY interesting to see the reports as they come out. Do you want us to wake you?

Trillions of dollars have gone missing from the DOD since 2000. If they can figure out where only a billion of it went, it's makes god financial sense.
