Technically, Rumsfeld acknowledged, not announced, the missing money.
Normal budget monitoring revealed the discrepancy, and Congress properly investigated the issue. Cynthia McKinney chaired the House committee investigating the purloined public funds.
really -- what does it matter-- technically or not-- that is one --big heap-- of money, think what sought of mischief you could get up to, with that in your purse.
GO --- Cynthia Mckinney, I hope you are still elected, [not up with the American political scene], but have a bit to do with a genuine political member here-- that lady shows all the good signs.
Again [not up with the responsibilities] of the Secretary of Defence, but if I were there and saw him gasping for air like a fish out of water, I would certainly have not been putting any water back.
If any of that missing money should be found, to have 'found' its way into the things we are all concerned about, what ever way, that would be one very useful ,'catch of the day'.
I think it would be the same in America, as here, good politicians need good bait put on their hook, and fishing is a very 'patient' game, fish always need to swim in the pool, without water, they are at a distinct disadvantage.
