September 10th 2001 !
"Oops" says Donald Rumsfeld when he was Secretary of Defence, "it seems that 2.3Trillion dollars can't be accounted for, this all due to bad accounting at the Pentagon obviously...!?" This message was delivered to a senate hearing on September 10th 2001 - then obviously the events of September 11th 2001 took over and the news about the missing trillions got buried - very helpful - kinda took the heat off of the Pentagon didnt it!
