On Jan. 17, 1961, US President Eisenhower gave the nation a dire warning about what he described as a threat to democratic government. He called it the military-industrial complex.

He warned, “In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists, and will persist.”

Its been over 50 years since that warning and, apparently, no one listened. And in the last 50 years, it has gotten more gargantuan and out of control.

By the turn of the millennium, The Department of Offense (they call it the Department of Defense even though that is the opposite of what it does) announced it was missing $2.3 trillion.

Not $2.3 million… that would have been bad enough. Not $2.3 billion, that would have been an unbelievable amount. But, one thousand times more, $2.3 trillion!

The Rest…HERE
