The documents, according to Politico, renew questions about whether the Department of Defense as a bureau can handle managing its $700 billion annual budget.

“If you can’t follow the money, you aren’t going to be able to do an audit,” said Iowa Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley. Read more at POLITICO.
