Hundreds of Millions Unaccounted for in Search for WMD

Washington Post

"Congress allotted hundreds of millions of dollars for the weapons hunt, and there has been no public accounting of the money. A spokesman for the Pentagon's Defense Intelligence Agency said the entire budget and the expenditures would remain classified." -- Washington Post, January 12, 2005


There are certainly times when secrecy is necessary for the greater good of the nation and the world. Yet secrecy for reasons of "national security" can often be misused to cover-up major problems and scandals within government. Those involved in the deception simply claim that national security would be threatened if the information were to be released. This is especially true when money is involved.

When hundreds of millions of dollars cannot be accounted for, the public needs to know where our tax dollars have gone. Too much of the hundreds of billions of tax dollars that flow into the military-industrial complex routinely disappears down black holes. A CBS article quotes Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld stating, "According to some estimates we cannot track $2.3 trillion in transactions." Let us all join together in calling for greater transparency in government. Yet let us not forget, as well, to work towards greater openness and transparency in our own lives. Where are each of us not in integrity around money in our lives? Take care and have a great day!
