SHOCKER: Pentagon fails first-ever audit.

“We never thought we were going to pass an audit, everyone was betting against us that we wouldn’t even do the audit,” he added.

But Shanahan also made it clear the agency intended to take the audit seriously, saying he was concerned about the effect on future Pentagon funding if the agency was unable to resolve the issues identified.

“If I’m a taxpayer what I want to see is, ‘that’s great, you did the audit and you have all these findings – how long is it going to take for you to fix those?’ ” Shanahan said.

“And then show me next year that it takes less to audit and you have fewer findings. That’s what I’d want to see.”

This should have been done decades ago.
