On Sept. 10, 2001, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld declared war. However, it was not on foreign terrorists, he said,
“the adversary’s closer to home. It’s the Pentagon bureaucracy,”
Donald Rumsfeld explained that the money wasted by the military poses a serious threat and “in fact, it could be said it’s a matter of life and death.”
Rumsfeld promised change, but the very next day — Sept. 11th– the world changed and in the rush to fund the war on terrorism, the war on waste seemed to have been forgotten.
“According to some estimates we cannot track $2.3 trillion in transactions,” Rumsfeld admitted.
$2.3 TRILLION ($2,300,000,000.00)— that’s $8,000 for every man, woman and child in America.
