Pentagon wastes $125 billion; Obama missing in action
The Washington Post reported that the Pentagon buried a report about $125 billion in waste without once mentioning that Obama is president and that Obama did nothing about it.
The Post headline dated December 6, 2016 blared, "Pentagon buries evidence of $125 billion in bureaucratic waste." The substance of the story:
The Pentagon has buried an internal study that exposed $125 billion in administrative waste in its business operations amid fears Congress would use the findings as an excuse to slash the defense budget, according to interviews and confidential memos obtained by The Washington Post.
The report recommended that the bureaucracy be trimmed because it is overstaffed and overfunded. It describes the infighting at the Pentagon, with everyone shifting the blame to others.
But the missing name in the story is the name of President Obama. If you read the story, you could conclude that we do not have a president to make the decision to save $125 billion. It is all the fault of Congress, or the generals or the system or defense secretaries. The Washington Post must not know that the president should make the decisions and is responsible. But what is $125 billion to Obama? It is not the fault of Obama. Nothing is ever the fault of Obama, according to the MSM.
This is consistent with the report that Hillary Clinton "lost" $6 billion while secretary of state. I would bet that Hillary can account for every penny at the Clinton Foundation.
Meanwhile Trump, has called for cancelation of the Boeing presidential plane that costs $4 billion.
But Obama just spent $5 million of our money on his latest vacation, bringing the total for eight years to $85 million.
The Pentagon wastes $125 billion. The Hillary State Department loses $6 billion. Obama spends $85 million on vacations. Obama orders a $4-billion Boeing. Obama doubles the national debt. But Obama is not at fault or responsible.
