On September 10th, 2001, then Secretary of Defense, Donald Rumsfeld, announced that the Pentagon was missing $2.3 trillion. The next day, the United States faced the worst terrorist attack in its history, and an airliner crashed into the Pentagon’s budgeting office, vaporizing all traces of the missing $2.3 trillion.
Today, the Department of Defense is reporting that they can’t account for $6.5 trillion in taxpayer money; roughly three times the amount that Rumsfeld was missing 15 years ago.
This new mystery is coming amidst a wave of ISIS attacks on the West, and threats of continued violence. Reports of the missing $6.5 trillion also come just one week after it came to light that Hillary Clinton was a director of a company which was funding and arming ISIS.
This could all be mere coincidence, but given what happened 15 years ago, there is good reason to be uncomfortable about these revelations.
