Skip to comments.State Dept. misplaced $6B under Hillary Clinton: IG report
Posted on 05/28/2014 8:41:34 PM PDT by afraidfortherepublic
The State Department misplaced and lost some $6 billion due to the improper filing of contracts during the past six years, mainly during the tenure of former Secretary of State Hilary Clinton, according to a newly released Inspector General report.
The $6 billion in unaccounted funds poses a significant financial risk and demonstrates a lack of internal control over the Departments contract actions, according to the report.
The alert, originally sent on March 20 and just released this week, warns that the missing contracting fundscould expose the department to substantial financial losses.
The report centered on State Department contracts worth more than $6 billion in which contract files were incomplete or could not be located at all, according to the alert.
The failure to maintain contract files adequately creates significant financial risk and demonstrates a lack of internal control over the Departments contract actions, the alert states.
The situation creates conditions conducive to fraud, as corrupt individuals may attempt to conceal evidence of illicit behavior by omitting key documents from the contract file, the report concluded.
The State Departments inability to properly file its paperwork is causing most of the losses, according to the report.
The IG found repeated examples of poor contract file administration over the years, the report said.
Contracts related to the U.S. war in Iraq, for instance, could not be produced in 33 out of 115 instances, according to the report.
A recent OIG audit of the closeout process for contracts supporting the U.S. Mission in Iraq revealed that contracting officials were unable to provide 33 of 115 contract files requested in accordance with the audit sampling plan, the report states.

Well, Well, Well!
Mrs. Bill Clinton now has a new 6 BILLION Dollar question to answer.
..... WELL ....... Just ... OOPS! ... Sorry.
Did you see this?
If not, ping.
What difference at this time does it make?!
If I were investigating this as a theft,
the first place I would look is in the CLINTON FOUNDATION.
Then maybe the Clinton Library.
Here’s to Senator Ron Johnson of the great state of Wisconsin for getting Hillary to lose her cool and make that stupid statement! Priceless!
And the Obama Administration managed to ship, and leave unguarded, American weapons, armored vehicles and night vision equipment in the last several months in Libya that was “stolen”. All part of the Democrat’s bloody deal with Al Qaeda. We are governed by thieves, traitors and cowards.
Sure you did...
Check under the sofa cushions in Hillary’s $3 million dollar Washington DC home.
Finally - someone located one of Hillary’s accomplishments as SoS
6 billion to Muslim groups. BUT BUT BUT.... Ms. Clinton traveled over a million miles. That’s only $6000 per mile lost on her trips. If you don’t like it... THAT’S RACIST. I mean sexist.
This sounds like a carbon copy of the Rose Law Firm billing records. This “woman” definitely has a problem keeping things in proper order, most notably her husband.
If I am not mistaken, that "What difference does it make" statement was scripted. She read it! She was waiting for a chance to deliver a rejoinder that she (and her handlers) thought would close the book on Benghazi.
Little did they know...
I looked it up, and you know what?
$6 billion is more than the annual GDP of Licthenstein or Monaco.
It’s what Hillary lost and mostly IT IS NOT REALLY EVEN NEWS..!
Can u imagine if you dropped $6 billion out of your wallet and u succeeded in covering it up from your whole family?
Yet Hillary did that in one of the most visible jobs in the most visible country in the world.
“This sounds like a carbon copy of the Rose Law Firm billing records. This woman definitely has a problem keeping things in proper order, most notably her husband.”
But Ole Hil will make it all right with the taxpayers, because as we all know, she did remarkably well with “cattle futures” a while back.
Hillary also hides chestnuts in her cheeks just because she can.
Hillary: “What difference does it make...it’s not like it was my money.”
Knowing the American news media I am assuming that this will be the first and LAST time I see this story anywhere....
No question, it’s in her war chest.
State Dept. misplaced $6B under Hillary Clinton: IG report...” <<
What difference does it make now!......../s
One of the few times I see the exact quote. Love it.
Now we know where they got the funds to arm Syrian terrorists.
No wonder she could only find $200k for Amb. Stevens’ security detail! /s
Let's put this in proper perspective :
$200,000.oo for Ambassador Steven's security, that she didn't pony up !
but missing is $6,000,000,000.oo from the State Dept. receipts ?... totally unaccounted for ?
That's a lot of MANPADS , and marischino cherries !!
But as the "Queen" has said :" ..at this point , WHAT DOES IT MATTER .. ? " /s
I find it hard to believe that people cannot see Liberals, i.e. about 99% of the US State Dept, are nothing but con artists and swindlers. I provided security for these morons and their ilk for over 4 years in Iraq.
All they did was come up with idiotic ways to waste taxpayer money on the Iraqi’s and funnel money to their friends, who had somehow been able to start up a company that was able to do business with the US government. The whole thing is nothing more than what Solyndra, etc have done
Hillary Clinton on State Dept. budget for FY 2012.
FY 2012 Budget Request March 10, 2011
"The second part of our request funds the extraordinary, temporary portion of our war effort the same way the Pentagons request is funded: in a separate Overseas Contingency Operations account known as OCO. Instead of covering war expenses through supplemental appropriations, we are now taking a more transparent approach that fully reflects the integrated civilian-military efforts. Our share of the Presidents $126 billion request for exceptional wartime costs is $8.7 billion. So all told, we have a $47 billion operational account and an $8.7 billion Overseas Contingency Operations account."
"But let me just quickly walk you through this, because on this issue of our $8.7 billion Overseas Contingency Operations, we have the strongest support from Secretary Gates, from Admiral Mullen. And next week I was speaking with General Petraeus last night. He will be here on the Hill strongly supporting the civilian effort that goes hand-in-hand with what he is doing so heroically in Afghanistan. So we are funding vital civilian missions in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Iraq with this $8.7 billion."
With $6Billion they could have brought all of Benghazi city.
Misplaced? Uh huh. More likely PIAPS and/or her pals are now billionaires.
6 Billion? That means The Rodham had enough money to buy 1 Million
copies of her own book, and transfer them to a storage facility.
Mucho dinero for the wife of Monica’s boyfriend.
check Hillary’s bank account
In the late 1960s a bookkeeper friend of mine told me an Army auditor friend of his couldn’t find 12 Sherman tanks of ours in Europe.
The head of government department seems to be missing billions? This is stupendous earth shattering news.
My first thought — how much went to Huma and her Mooselimb Brotherhoods?
If Hillary runs, will the R candidate take the Mitten’s approach and politely not mention it? Along with cattle futures, Rose Law Firm, Travelgate, FBI files, Benghazi etc.?
The plunder of the republic continues via the United Socialists of America.
Socialism Is Legal Plunder - Bastiat
DEFUND/DISMANTLE socialist collectives, foreign and domestic. DEFUND/DISMANTLE the Department of State.
Unaccountable bureaucrats are socialists. Socialism is unsustainable.
It was for the SARIN, MANPADs and SAMs and the payoffs
all for al Qaeda against America.
And a little bit for Huma-the-traitor and
Nice “catch22” sub reference. She is not as smart as Orr though
The federal government is a den of thieves.
I’m sorry, I misplaced six dollars when I filled out my 1040 last year. We’re cool- right?
Now probably awaiting an audit :(
“State Dept. misplaced $6B under Hillary Clinton: IG report.”.....
“What Difference Does It Make” seems to be the appropriate answer.
When somebody ,like Clinton, looses $6 BILIION Dollars out of an $8.7 Billion budget, a loss of almost 3/4ths of money appropriated..
I would call that " GROSS INCOMPETANCE AND GROSS NEGLECT "
which would typify what I would expect of a Clinton administration following up a 17 TRILLION deficit run up by the current administration.
What a great campaign donation. Or a tidy retirement.
Just to be clear here; that is a Hillbilly Clinton quote in your post. Those are not my words.
No harm intended by me .
Hitlery is totally capable of bringing the entire country into bankruptcy , all by herself.
I meant to say : If you can misplace $6 BILLION DOLLARS during your term as SOS, just think what you (and Saul Alinsky) could do to the country !!
