It was forgotten in the wake of 9-11, but on 9-10 the Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld said:
On September 10, 2001, Donald Rumsfeld gave a speech at the Pentagon where he stated:
“According to some estimates, we cannot track $2.3 Trillion dollars in transactions.”
“The adversary is closer to home, it’s the Pentagon bureaucracy.”
“In fact, it could be said that it’s a matter of life and death.”
Let me be clear that I am NOT trying to draw a parallel between the timing
of Rumsfeld's statement and 9-11....this is NOT a 'CT' thing.
But, as the right revisits 'welfare queens' with 'Obama phones', I think it's a fair question to ask.
