My 34 years of military and government service taught me about the IG system. It don’t work! The IRS IG did nothing about 15 years of illegal refunds to illegal aliens at the same address!
IG’s work for the agencies, departments, brigades, wings and instillations and typically try to keep the agency’s from being embarrassed about mismanagement, fraud, waste and abuse.
Every government worker and military member knows that reporting FW&A is the career ending kiss of death. The whistleblowers get investigated, hounded and discredited. They become the focus just like Snowden.
There is an investigative organization with an outstanding unblemished record, the United States Government Accountability Office or GAO. They call a shovel a “shovel” and know what “is” means. I absolutely trust GAO Audits.
The GAO operates under Congress and can’t be fired by a rogue agency chief or cabinet member.
Clearly OUR government has become a loose cannon. OUR Tax money is being wasted. OUR security has been compromised. Federal workers have become abusive. OUR intelligence agencies have become ineffective. OUR military has become weakened. OUR welfare system is a black hole. OUR country is beyond broke with National Debt and Unfunded Requirements amounting to over $500,000 per family. That’s right, it would take over half a million dollars per family to get the United States out of debt. Even drunken sailors stop spending when they’re broke.
Here is what I am asking for: The most comprehensive audit in the history of the world. It should be led by the GAO and augmented with investigators from each of the 50 states.
Up until now we have been giving aspirins to OUR critically ill patient when radical surgery was indicated. Drastic situations require drastic actions. Are you with me?
