I agree with Lt Col Shaffer – the DOD MUST HAVE AN AUDIT. Then we will see if the budget should be busted. “The lack of global strategy and strategic thinking has left the Pentagon with no way to gauge whether it is spending its money in an effective manner. The Defense Department is the only federal agency that has not completed an audit. This is “simply unacceptable,” in the words of Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.V.) .
One critical step to pushing for an “effective” over “expensive” Pentagon must be an audit (or, due to its size, a series of audits). So rather than throwing billions more dollars at the DOD without any accountability or oversight, job number one of the Pentagon’s leadership is to figure out how to properly allocate the money it already has.
