A soon-to-be-released government audit (Now public, see update below) says the Navy, in an attempt to reduce costs, let down its guard to risks posed by outside contractors at the Washington Navy Yard and other facilities, a federal official with access to the report tells TIME.
The Navy “did not effectively mitigate access-control risks associated with contractor-installation access” at Navy Yard and other Navy installations, the report by the Department of Defense Inspector General’s office says. Parts of the audit were read to TIME by a federal official with access to the document.
Why was the Navy reducing costs? What did the Republican House force upon us as a condition of the continued existence of the country? Hint: it starts with an “S” and the last syllable rhymes with “fester”.
I’ll lay off this topic after this post, but I wish a motherfucker would hang this around Ted Cruz and Louie Gohmert’s neck, among others.
