    If you don't even live here, why would you care?

    We must make the world go round or something.

    Not sure where I said it effected me personally. Its not my money.

    I'm also posting in the Israel Palestine thread and I don't live their either...

    Who is "we"? International corporate giants? I don't believe you are one.

    Fact: An international story is an international story. If you don't think that a heist/ loss of 21 TRILLION dollars is interesting then I don't know what to say to you.

    I could damn easily make the argument that he's Your Trump. Not mine.

    You guys did way more than I to help his ass get in there.

    You can believe it or not.

    OK.

    I just think if I was in the South Pacific I'd be watching out for my own area. Unless that black ops money was affecting you somehow.

    Of cause your military is threating the area....that's local news, as is the up coming election and the budget, trade talks with England with Brixit coming up. The international news of whats happening in Indonesia, Unrest in Russia and the comedy that is the Brexit saga. Lots going on.

    Sorry if I don't just pay attention to the local news and current affairs.

    I don't know much about the topic and don't want to get too involved here but that unaccounted money, what about black programs and projects and departments? The kind that don't have any oversight? The kind where even the president is on a need-to-know basis if they are looking for info?

    Its still a lot of money and even "black programmes " have budgets and over sights.

    I bet somebody just hasn't cashed some checks. I do the same sometimes.

    No doubt it's a lot of money, but how can we be sure of what kind of oversight there is, and how is it supposed to be labeled if it's meant to be secretive as to what it's paying for? Obviously, they wouldn't be able to be specific. I'm not tying to start a back and forth, but no one person knows what kind of deep level shit that's going on here. We know it's all compartmentalized, even for those who's job it is to know. Checks and balances fall apart when you have nothing to balance it against. The amount that is unaccounted for and the relative light exposure that it's been (or hasn't been) given speaks volumes on its own. I can't say with any more certainty what is or isn't anymore or less than any one here can. We'll never, ever know, so I won't let it bother me too much.

    I guess it's fun to entertain what's really going on...until it's not fun anymore

    Its just such a shit load of money in a small time frame..its not 21 billion..or even a hundred billion..its 21 Trillion. Such a large number its impossible to imagine.
    It would just about pay off Americas whole national debt. http://www.usdebtclock.org/

    Black budgets, as I understand it come out of budgets. For eg the air force may get 20 billion for the next 5 years, they may then funnel a few billion into a "black fund". That money is still over seen and accounted for- every $. otherwise some one could and would transfer it to themselves.

    Are there? I was only taught the one way.

    I'm not sure why this thread has your goat up. I'm sorry if I have somehow offended you. I assure you it was not intentional.
    I mealy thought that 21 Trillion dollars having gone missing in a short time was interesting. If 21 trillion dollars of art had of gone missing from The Louvre or a diamond mine id also be interested. I love a good robbery!

    I don't mind the odd quid and 21 Trillion is just such ALOT of cash.
