State Department Misplaced $6 Billion Under Hillary

012413

Just think how much the country will misplace if she ever reaches the White House.

The State Department misplaced and lost some $6 billion due to the improper filing of contracts during the past six years, mainly during the tenure of former Secretary of State Hilary Clinton, according to a newly released Inspector General report.

The $6 billion in unaccounted funds poses a “significant financial risk and demonstrates a lack of internal control over the Department’s contract actions,” according to the report.

The alert, originally sent on March 20 and just released this week, warns that the missing contracting funds “could expose the department to substantial financial losses.”

You don’t say. And that’s just from misfiling contracts. Imagine how much money is truly being wasted in Foggy Bottom.

    All that comes to mind for me is, how many waitresses, fast-food workers, laborers etc., have to work to pay for these “Democrat” excesses? These self-annointed mandarins have lost touch with reality, that regular folks deal with everyday.

    How do you LOSE 5,000 MILLION DOLLARS? This is really beyond belief. This is actually a massive amount of money if you stop and think about it. We, the people who paid for it with our taxes, deserve to know where it went to.

        5,000 million is 5 billion.

    In my opinion, they spent it on BS and then claimed they “misplaced it”. Probably spent on personal items using departmental issued credit cards. That seems to be what has happened in other departments during this administration. Actually, it really doesn’t matter who is in power since all the bureaucracies are loaded with and run by liberals. The socialists have been growing the government and packing it with socialists for years and years.

      Maybe they started getting uncomfortable from being exposed to the stupid things they waste money on and decided to throw away a bunch of invoices. Better to “lose” five or six billion than to have to explain why you bought more Muslim rock statues or some other bullshit.

      And actually buying art is a great way to funnel money illicitly. It seemed like a good idea but their judgment was so bad that even that became an issue. So throw away the rest of the invoices and take the hit all at once when the public is distracted over the much larger waste of Deficit and Destruction Care.

      Usually you hear of Department of Defense contracting officers going to prison. Maybe a few more State Department officials need to go to jail than what are being prosecuted. Seems like way to many people have get out of jail free cards due to their political connections. Throwing a few sops like the one linked below is not enough.

    Print another trillion so we can stop fighting over budgets. Conservatives are so mean and petty. People are suffering!!!

    Hillary has a history of finding important documents years after they are relevant. http://www.latimes.com/nation/politics/politicsnow/la-pn-hillary-clinton-memo-scandal-20140315,0,3729533.story#axzz2y44WoQRO

    I’m unclear as why this would come as any kind of surprise or profound revelation of anything new. After all, the leader of Canada’s federal Liberal opposition party Justin Trudeau (yes, son of Fidel’s good friend, Pierre) says that “the budget will balance itself”.
