• https://www.thegatewaypundit.com By Mike LaChance

In early October, it was reported that the Pentagon was crying broke to Congress, now this.

Considering that the world is on fire under Biden, now would be a good time to have our Defense Department in order, but no such luck.

The Daily Caller reports:

Pentagon Fails Sixth Straight Audit With Little Improvement From Last Year

The Department of Defense (DOD) failed its sixth straight audit with little positive change from the year prior, despite pledges from Pentagon leaders to make improvements on the massive undertaking each year.

Auditors gave seven of the department's 29 sub-agencies a clean audit in 2023, with no change from the 2022 audit, according to a Wednesday statement. Although it's not a surprise that the DOD hasn't yet been able to account for its $3.8 trillion enterprise and $4 trillion in liabilities, scattered across 50 states and 4,500 sites globally, DOD officials previously said they expected to see incremental improvement, Defense News reported.

"Auditing the Department's $3.8 trillion in assets and $4.0 trillion in liabilities is a massive undertaking," said Pentagon comptroller Michael McCord, "but the improvements and changes we are making every day as a result of these audits positively affect every soldier, sailor, airman, marine, guardian and DOD civilian."
