Defense budget over runs/oversight

Defense Budget over runs and oversight

Ralph Nader’s perspective paraphrased

From pages 71 and 72 of Unstoppable

The Department of Defense (D.O.D.) is not audited by the Government Accountability Office (G.A.O.). The pentagon does internal auditing of its own. The defense budget accounts for one half the discretionary spending budget of our country.

Ralph Nader believes all government budgets should be open for transparent auditing.  Mr. Nader obviously believes that bringing the defense budget out into the light of day would lead inevitably to reductions in defense spending.
