Oops! State Department under Hillary Clinton lost track of $6 billion.

Chalk up another dubious achievement former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton can add to her accomplishments — right up there with getting an Ambassador murdered and giving Russia a reset button. Oops, the State Department seems to have lost track of $6 billion it used to pay its contractors.

It’s Spring Break and instead of “Girls Gone Wild” we have “Government Gone Wild.”

According to CNBC,”The State Department has no idea what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors. In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years.”

I wonder if the special “management alert” is like those “Amber Alerts” broadcast publicly? It should be.

That $6 billion number sounds familiar. Oh yeah, now I remember, Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA) and Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) came up with a budget compromise that would cut the cost of living allowance (COLA) for military retirees and service disabled retirees under the age of 62 — since according to Ryan, they could still go out and work — and that was supposed to save the federal budget $6 billion. Funny how we few retirees, all 860,000 of us, had to be the bill payers for the money somehow misplaced by the U.S. State Department.

In the memo, the inspector general detailed “repeated examples of poor contract file administration.” For instance, a recent investigation of the closeout process for contracts supporting the mission in Iraq, showed that auditors couldn’t find 33 of the 115 contract files totaling about $2.1 billion. Of the remaining 82 files, auditors said 48 contained insufficient documents required by federal law. In another instance, the Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement issued a $1 billion contract in Afghanistan that was deemed “incomplete.”

In a blinding flash of the obvious, the State Department made this acute observation and response, “saying it concurred with the recommendations to address the “vulnerability” in its contracting process.”

Before current State Department IG Linick took office last fall, the State Department had been without an inspector general position for five years—the longest inspector general vacancy in the government’s history, as noted in The Washington Post. Talk about money being misplaced – so was leadership.

And the person in charge at that time, Mrs. Clinton, is supposed to be the hands down, frontrunner to be the next president of the United States of America?

That is indeed worth a special “leadership alert” for the country. Hey folks, never forget the words of Plato: “The heaviest penalty for declining to rule is to be ruled by someone inferior to yourself.”

Let’s not allow liberal progressive socialist lightning to strike thrice in the same place — 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

Clearly you are just too “simple” to understand how politics actually work.

No I’m not a “liberal” or a “conservative.” Politics isn’t as black and white as that.

I would agree that they are not all perverts and criminals. My experiences with most of them is that they are, for the most part, ignorant as to the path that their party is currently going down, they are vacant as to knowledge of the history of America, and the Socialistic country they are attempting to make us. They have not a clue that every socialist country since the Roman Empire up to current times have been total failures, except their rulers live extremely well while the serfs pay for it.

Could it be that life is just not fair? In my opinion, progressivism is the surest way to not be stagnant. Unfortunately most people who air on the side of Conservism aren’t all that into progress and just want things to never change, even in a world that is changing at a very rapid rate.

You just said you want people to freely make their own decisions right? Did you not read your own statements? All of it has to do with forcing your opnions onto someone else.

I’m not sure where you’re getting that I am forcing people to be a certain way.

Good to know and fair enough, no one is trying to take your weapons from you. But please understand that the second amendment actually doesn’t grant the right for privatized citizens to own weapons.
