DoD IG Unsure How Much Money US Gave to China 'for Research Related to Enhancement of Pathogens'

Sarah D.

The country's not in the best of hands.

But you already knew that. 

I'll kick off today's example of that with a Department of Defense Office of the Inspector General outline of a report they were asked to compile (emphasis mine):

Section 252 of the FY 2024 NDAA requires that the DoD Inspector General submit a report to the congressional defense committees within 180 days of December 22, 2023. The legislation requires a report on the amount of Federal funds awarded by the DoD, directly or indirectly, through grants, contracts, subgrants, subcontracts, or any other type of agreement or collaboration, to Chinese research labs or to fund research or experiments in China or other foreign countries that could have reasonably resulted in the enhancement of pathogens of pandemic potential, from 2014 through 2023. In addition, the legislation specifically named Chinese government entities, affiliates, and one government contractor, as being part of the study. 

Oh, this should be interesting, right? We finally get to find out how much money the U.S. government has been shoveling to the CCP to play with viruses that could end up killing us all. 

But... no, we're not going to be told how much money the U.S. has been spending on something Dr. Fauci has claimed never happens.

Why? Tracking system "limitations," that's why:

Yep, you read that right.

Here's the report's conclusion:

We found significant limitations with the adequacy of data, similar to the observations the GAO found in its reports. Specifically, the DoD did not track funding at the level of detail necessary to determine whether the DoD provided funding to Chinese research laboratories or other foreign countries for research related to enhancement of pathogens of pandemic potential. In addition, DoD organizations did not have visibility of subaward information throughout the life of contracts and grants. In addition, except for the CDMRP electronic grants system, DoD organizations could not effectively search award systems to identify all contracts, subcontracts, grants, and subgrants that may have been related to pathogen research performed by China and other foreign countries. As a result, DoD organizations could not produce a complete population of pathogen research grants and subawards necessary for us to conclude on the use of DoD funds provided for pathogen research.

Unreal.

It appears that the government doesn't want anybody to know how much American taxpayers are giving to the CCP to toy around with pathogens.

They're either incredibly incompetent or lying. Neither option is comforting.
