ARJUN WALIA - The Pentagon Black Budget: $21 Trillion Dollars Gone Missing

There is often talk of the Pentagon's missing trillions, but now we know where the money went, on top secret organisations and project. A massive amount of money is spent on projects Americans know nothing about. Hmm, I bet a lot of that money made some people very rich indeed. KV

Secrecy is the backbone of America. According to some historians’ estimates, each year, more than 500 million pages of documents are classified by the United States alone. The United States has also had a history of government agencies existing in secret for years. The National Security Agency (NSA), for example, was founded in 1952, but its existence was hidden until the mid 1960s.
Even more secretive is the National Reconnaissance Office, which was founded in 1960 but remained completely secret for 30 years. On top of that, we’ve had numerous presidents, politicians, and others tell the world a secret government exists that controls both parties and all media, and dictates government policy. The latest to acknowledge this secret group was Vladimir Putin, who described how men provide instruction to the president after they’ve been elected.
The bottom line is that this world of secrecy requires funding. And since these intelligence agencies were completely secret, that funding came from the Black Budget. This money is invested into programs that are completely exempt from disclosure to Congress. When former Canadian Defence Minister Paul Hellyer said thousands of billions of dollars have been spent on projects about which both the Congress and the Commander in Chief have been kept deliberately in the dark,” he wasn’t kidding.

Much has been written about this topic lately. Pentagon fraud and corruption is staggering.

Average people shrug their shoulders and say, “There’s nothing we can do about it. Besides, the U.S. government can print infinite dollars.”

But when you suggest that we should have a program like Universal Medicare, average people respond with, “How will you pay for it?”

This is why they remain impoverished slaves for life.

Incidentally the article begins with, “Secrecy is the backbone of America.”

I say that selfishness and greed are the backbone of America. Secrecy is a euphemism for lies, fraud, theft, self-delusion, and bullshyte. Secrecy is code for “Screw you; I’ve got mine.”

“National security” is code for “Shut up and obey.”

“$21 Trillion Dollars Gone Missing“

Yeah right... these kinds of stories are all phony...

They must have went to the same Accounting classes as Wray with his “$29T bailout!” ...

Kaivey said...

So none of these secret organizations exist, and so they never needed funding?

Matt Franko said...

There is not $29T missing...

Konrad said...

@ Kaivey: Clearly the individual above did not read the article, nor any of the other articles about this subject that have lately been appearing on the Internet. Why take the trouble to read, think, and respond logically when you can get attention by being a moron?

TRIVIA

This brings up a memory from my travels in rural Mexico, where villages were typically called “ranchos.” Whenever I visited a new “rancho,” I asked the people there who the local “chapusa” was. “Chapusa” was short for “chapusero” -- i.e. a cowardly thief and trouble maker who was always in and out of jail, and always harassing everyone. Villagers would stop for a second and look at me with an expression, “How does he know about our “chapusa?” Then I would say to them, “Every rancho has at least one chapusa.” The villagers would smile, because it was true.

Likewise, every blog has at least one loser like the individual above.

Konrad,

You don’t know what you are talking about here neither does Kaivey or the journo who wrote this article...

All Treasury withdrawals and deposits are accounted for in the Daily Treasury Statement... including amounts previously appropriated for classified Defense Dept projects...

Matt Franko said...

You guys are borderline paranoid delusional...

Konrad said...

A. Did you know that the Pentagon has never been audited, and that billions and even trillions of dollars have quietly disappeared into various parties' bank accounts over the years? Did you know that the "black budget" is classified for reasons of "national security"? Did you know that the budget for "Overseas Contingency Operations" (i.e. for the war OF terror) is largely classified, and is separate from spending on the Pentagon? Did you know that ---

B. You're paranoid delusional!

Right.
You forgot to also call us "conspiracy theorists."

There is not $29T missing...

Exactly right. Nobody knows how much is missing, but it is a very large number.

Just for kicks research Black Eagle Trust. There is an annotated and footnoted 50-odd page document that is compelling reading.

Hey do you guys think Jim Morrison is really dead??????

What about Elvis?????

Noah Way said...

@ FRANKO

We don't think Morrison is alive, but we've got overwhelming evidence that you are suffering from a sever medical condition known as a cranial rectal inversion.

If we're "anti-war biased pacifists" (a label I am proud to wear) that would seem to make you a pro-war militarist, but in reality you're just another chickenshit chickenhawk troll.

FYI articles below on CNN, Reuters, and Forbes. Maybe you should try removing your head from your ass occasionally.
