$2.3 Trillion Missing Money – Here’s How “Fact Checking” Works

Click here for a short CBS news clip and links provided by Catherine Austin Fitts.

“Here’s how “fact checking” works. Watch Secretary Donald Rumsfeld saying there is $2.3 trillion unaccounted for at the Pentagon on September 10, 2001. This video is from Solari’s missing money collection – it was published by CBS. Here are the fact checkers saying it is not so even though they were directed to our Missing Money documentation page at DOD and HUD $21 Trillion Missing Money: Report & Supporting Documentation and our Missing Money video page. For lots of great videos on the $21 trillion missing from DOD and HUD, check out the Missing Money Video Page.”

I was contacted by the “fact checker” and provided ample information and links to sources, but despite the evidence the “fact checker” concluded that there was no missing money. Very frustrating.

  1. Have you considered that maybe the whole purpose of the fact-checker and other entities is to have you waste your time and be frustrated so that you cannot do and reveal more damage?
