Newsbud Exclusive Report- A Distillation of DOD Funding Priorities for September 2017

DOD spent $45,526,070,000+ on 681 individual contracts in September 2017

The U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) spent at least $45,526,070,000 on 681 individual contracts during September 2017.  This amount does not include 52 Foreign Military Sales transactions worth $4,891,400,000.

The month of September marks the end of the Pentagon’s fiscal year, hence the uptick in the number of contracts issued.

Peruse the five PDF documents below. See for yourself how the Pentagon wastes U.S. tax dollars.

Foreign Military Sales, Drones, Combatant Commands, Academia

Fixed-wing and Rotary-wing Aircraft

Navy Ships, Boats, Vessels, & Equipment

Cyber, IT, Communications, Satellites, Ordnance, Gear, Training

Energy, Medicine, Transportation, Environment, Base Support, Construction

*Keep in mind, the corrupt U.S. Senate recently approved an $80 billion increase in annual Pentagon spending. For what? More waste. More war. More death.
