Pentagon Wasting Millions On Ammunition, Report Says

 

 

 

ammo destruction

 

 

” The Pentagon plans to destroy more than $1 billion worth of ammunition although some of those bullets and missiles could still be used by troops, according to the Pentagon and congressional sources.

  It’s impossible to know what portion of the arsenal slated for destruction — valued at $1.2 billion by the Pentagon — remains viable because the Defense Department’s inventory systems can’t share data effectively, according to a Government Accountability Office report obtained by USA TODAY.

  The result: potential waste of unknown value.

” There is a huge opportunity to save millions, if not billions of dollars if the (Pentagon) can make some common-sense improvements to how it manages ammunition,” said Sen. Tom Carper, D-Del., and chairman of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee. “Despite years of effort, the Army, Navy and Air Force still don’t have an efficient process for doing something as basic as sharing excess bullets. This Government Accountability Office (GAO) report clearly shows that our military’s antiquated systems lead to millions of dollars in wasteful ammunition purchases.”

Study: ABC, CBS & NBC Hype Romney’s ‘Binders’ Over Biden’s ‘Bullets’ by 11 to 1 Margin

“The Big Three networks (ABC, CBS and NBC) gave the faux furor over Mitt Romney’s “binders full of women” statement in Tuesday’s debate a whopping 22 mentions through Friday morning. Yet when Vice President Joe Biden, on Thursday, told an audience member that Republican  “young guns” like Vice Presidential nominee Paul Ryan had “bullets” aimed at him the networks delivered just a scant two total mentions (on NBC and CBS, ABC skipped the gaffe entirely.)”

 

In case you missed “Uncle Joe” ‘s remarks …

 

  Let’s play name that party . Who do you suppose I am quoting below ?

1) Mitt Romney
2) Ron Paul
3) New York Times
4) Black Panthers

  “Mr. Obama’s policies have not corrected the economic troubles of America, they have gotten worse,” Kweli wrote. “The debt continues to expand [into the trillions], and the administration’s handling of international relations has hardened dialogue with foreign nations. Mr. Obama’s policies have been especially harsh to us the Black community. He [Obama] bailed out Wall Street and the auto makers but kept us at the top of the unemployment ladder.”

Congratulations if you picked number 4 . You are our winner .

My how things have “changed” .

  What I would really like to know is why they limit their options to either the Left , who have just used them for generations , or revolution which is certain to end badly for us all , but worse for them ?
  I guess it must be that they could never think to vote for that “racist” party , the republicans . Everyone knows all about the republicans and the Klan , sorry that’s the dems .

Alright , one more for fun then back to business . This is what happens when you loosen hold of the inner kid , even for just a moment .
