After four years of fighting the good fight and spending countless hours at my computer documenting the rampant Fraud, Waste and Abuse of U.S. tax dollars in the hands of DoD contractors, I have submitted a petition on We the People.
We the People was set up by President Obama to take action on important issues facing our country. I think lying and stealing from the taxpayer is an important issue. Harming our troops in the name of profit is an important issue. I believe violating the FAR/DFAR is an important issue. I think the powers that be, need to get off their collective asses and hold someone accountable.
If you agree with the contents of the petition, I ask that you please sign it. I believe MsSparky.com readers are as fed up and disgusted with this as I am. If the petition meets the signature threshold of 25,000 signatures in 30 days, it will be reviewed by the Administration and an official response will be issued. Here is the link (Click HERE).
If you are not already registered with We The People, there is a VERY short registration required before you can sign or generate petitions. While you are there, please peruse the list of other petitions and sign those that are important to you and if you have an issue, by all means generate a petition. My petition is below:
We petition the Obama Administration to:
Enforce the law by prosecuting the corporations & criminals who have stolen $60 billion from the U.S. taxpayer
The Commission on Wartime Contracting estimates waste and fraud have amounted to as much as $60B during operations in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Defense contractors have subjected US military personnel to substandard services, shoddy work and chemical exposure resulting in permanent injury and death.
While the Pentagon may deem egregious behavior as satisfactory and indemnify this negligence as a cost of doing business, we the people do not. We call upon our government to hold accountable the corporate entities and individuals responsible for the heinous acts committed against the citizens of the United States and prosecute them to the fullest extent of the law.
War profiteering has never been so profitable for the wrongdoer and so dangerous for our troops and the taxpayer. (SIGN HERE)
We want out $60 Billion back! And if someone ended up going to jail for it, that would be nice too!
