90% of the claims are dismissed without even being investigated.

I don’t know if I’d have the nerve to be a whistleblower. But to blow the whistle on a huge organization with a lot of power, likely drawing that power to come crashing down on your head – that takes some serious spine-age. I’m speaking, of course, of the US Department of Defense.

Pentagon books so wrong on every level it’s impossible to detect fraud – (https://www.rt.com/usa/456593-matt-taibbi-redacted-tonight/)
Yet thousands, even tens of thousands, of people have taken that step over the past five years. All the while our organized human murder machine continues its work around the world. Eleven months ago I covered $21 trillion (https://www.truthdig.com/articles/the-pentagon-cant-account-for-21-trillion/) of unaccounted-for adjustments at the Pentagon over the past 20 years. The New York Times and Vox (https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2018/12/3/18122947/pentagon-accounting-error-medicare-for-all) both claimed the $21 trillion is merely the result of large-scale misdocumentation and therefore doesn’t matter at all. (It’s the Death Star if officials at the Death Star spent $10,000 (https://www.military.com/defensetech/2018/07/11/air-force-no-longer-spending-10000-toilet-seats-officials-say.html)on a toilet seat.)

It’s nearly 100,000. We are being lied into war again – Lee Camp (https://www.rt.com/op-ed/453716-war-lies-media-iraq-syria/) 95,613 whistleblower complaints over five years. When you have $21 trillion of unaccounted-for adjustments, it means a seizure-inducing amount of money, parts, pieces, bombs, missiles, manpower and devices are flying around with no accountability – likely creating loads of fraud, which would probably create loads of whistleblowers.

For example, there’s the time in 2003 when the US flew $12 billion in cash to Iraq and promptly lost track of it. As the Guardian makes clear in this article (https://www.theguardian.com/world/2007/feb/08/usa.iraq1), this was not an instance of hackers on a computer system stealing a bunch of ones and zeroes. This was giant pallets of cash money vanishing without a trace. In fact, it was 281 million $100 bills, weighing in at 363 tons. The Army lost and then found 39 helicopters. The Air Force lost and then found 478 buildings. How does one lose a goddamn building? Those who work at the Pentagon have no idea where or how the money is spent. They make up many of the numbers resulting in tens of trillions of dollars of unaccounted-for adjustments. They lose helicopters, buildings and, in a few instances, even nuclear warheads (https://www.nbcnews.com/id/20427730/ns/us_news-military/t/air-force-official-fired-after-nukes-fly-over-us/#.XLSww6QpCbg).
