$4 Trillion + Missing Money: What’s the Action?

By Catherine Austin Fitts

Someone called last night to talk about “the missing money” – or $4 trillion plus missing from the United States government. They were keen to figure out what the solution was, given that the US government has had many years to produce audited financial statements.

The requirement kicked in as of 1995. Sixteen years later, citizens still can’t get clean financials. Numerous agencies can not balance their books, with outstanding undocumentable adjustments and liabilities of enormous size.

In terms of dollar size, the Department of Defense is the mother load of missing money. Question is, can we understand, let alone solve the problem by changing DOD or how their money works?

If you step back and look at the financial flows in and around DOD, the problem is far bigger than something the US military can control. Our challenge is a global central banking warfare model involving millions of enterprises and billions of people. That is why I believe step #1 is transparency. Before we craft solutions, let’s ask and answer some important questions.

Where has all the missing money gone?

How do we get the money back? Or title/ownership to the assets financed? Or a common law offset against the assets of those who spent it outside of the law?

What is the black budget and what is it funding? Who governs it and why are they behaving the way they do?

Why are private defense contractors allowed to own and control classified technology? Why should government resources fund them doing so?

What invisible technology and advanced weaponry has been funded by the black budgets? It is possible to induce earthquakes, tsunamis  and other forms of weather manipulation?

Why are defense contractors operating DOD systems related to accounting and payment?

Why are the contracting budgets at DOD not public information?

Did the missing money and bailouts fund private endowments to finance private armies controlled by private investment and corporate interests?

If yes, do we need the DOD to protect us against them?

I believe that whatever the reforms considered, one of the critical questions is whether it returns the governance of national security resources to career military as opposed to private investment and corporate interests.

I don’t know about you, but I have more confidence in the Office of Naval Intelligence than in Goldman Sachs.
