pentagon agency ‘loses track’ of $800m

The Pentagon has reportedly “lost track” of hundreds of millions of dollars worth of military spending, according to an internal audit.Auditing firm Ernst & Young found that the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) “failed to properly document more than $800 million in construction projects” during the 2016 fiscal year, according to Politico.The DLA is one of the Pentagon’s largest agencies, responsible for managing the US military’s supply chain, including “the majority of its food, fuel and spare parts,” CNN says.See related The Pentagon's secret UFO programme Pentagon to allow transgender military recruitsA spokesperson for the agency acknowledged that the audit was accurate and said that the agency “did not anticipate achieving a ‘clean’ audit opinion”.However, the DLA sought to play down th

fanny blankers-koen, dutch runner, celebrated in google doodle

Google is celebrating the 100th birthday of the late Dutch runner Fanny Blankers-Koen, a historic Olympic athlete, with its new Google Doodle.Blankers-Koen, born in 1918 in the Netherlands, was a track star, acing events like the 200m race, the 800m race and the high jump. By the age of 17, she had set a national record for the women’s 800m, and at age 18, she competed in the 1936 Summer Olympics in Berlin, placing fifth in the 4x100m race and sixth in high jump.The track star was unable to compete in the Olympics after 1936, because the 1940 and 1944 games were cancelled. By the time the 1948 Olympics came around, Blankers-Koen was 30 and a mother of two — which hardly stopped her. Despite criticism from many people saying she should stay home instead of competing, Blankers-Koen decided t

north korea: pentagon will try to shoot down test missile

(WASHINGTON) — Preparing for North Korea's growing threat, the Pentagon will try to shoot down an intercontinental-range missile for the first time in a test next week. The goal is to more closely simulate a North Korean ICBM aimed at the U.S. homeland, officials said FridayThe American interceptor has a spotty track record, succeeding in nine of 17 attempts since 1999. The most recent test, in June 2014, was a success, but that followed three straight failures. The system has evolved from the multibillion-dollar effort triggered by President Ronald Reagan's 1983 push for a "Star Wars" solution to ballistic missile threats during the Cold War — when the Soviet Union was the only major worry.North Korea is now the focus of U.S. efforts because its leader, Kim Jong Un, has vowed to field a n

presstv-2,000 us troops in syria, pentagon admits

The US military has finally acknowledged that there are around 2,000 US troops in Syria, confirming reports that it previously disputed about the real troop levels in the Arab country.Pentagon spokesman Army Colonel Rob Manning announced the new number on Wednesday, claiming that it was declining.Washington was going to take a “conditions-based” approach to removing its forces from Syria, Manning said.Although the number does not mean that the US has been sending additional troops, it still confirms earlier government data that contradicted the Pentagon’s official count.While the Pentagon insisted a month ago that it had only sent 503 troops in Syria, a quarterly report by the Defense Manpower Data Center (DMDC) put the number at around 1,720, more than three times higher.The same report,

k-pop boy band pentagon 'shine' in new song

K-pop group Pentagon returned Monday (April 2) with their new album, Positive. Fronted by the song “Shine,” it’s the act’s sixth set since its debut in 2016.With a brassy, funky beat, cowbells, and playful piano melody driving the swaying hip-pop track, “Shine” is one of the brightest singles Pentagon’s put forward yet. Switching between rhythmic raps and harmonious, chanting choruses, the single is fun in its minimal nature, a trend that’s increasingly becoming popular among K-pop boy bands.Like other Pentagon songs, members E'Dawn and Hui co-composed the song with frequent collaborators Flow Blow. Rappers Yuto and Wooseok also had a hand in writing lyrics for “Shine.”The song was released with an accompanying music video that, like the song, emphasizes a softer side to Pentagon, moving t

Gold Coast: Caster Semenya says the 800 metres world record could be only three months away, but beyond that she's looking to go as far as 10,000m.After becoming the first athlete to take the Commonwealth Games 800-1500 double since 1986 with a commanding win in the 800m in a Games record on Friday night, the South African has more goals to fulfil.

presstv-‘us military lost track of $1bn worth of arms’

The US military has admitted to losing track of around $1 billion worth of weapons in Iraq and Kuwait, according to a US Defense Department audit reviewed by Amnesty International.In the September 2016 document, which was obtained through Freedom of Information Act requests, the Pentagon stated that it “did not have accurate, up-to-date records on the quantity and location” of a large amount of weapons it had moved into Iraq and Kuwait to arm the Iraqi government forces, Amnesty reported Wednesday.The transfers were part of the Iraq Train and Equip Fund (ITEF) program and following appropriation by Congress of $1.6 billion to allegedly stop Daesh (ISIL)’s advances in 2015.The items included tens of thousands of assault rifles worth $28 million, hundreds of mortar rounds and hundreds of Hum

presstv-pentagon denies striking syria mosque

The Pentagon has claimed that a US airstrike in northern Syria has not struck a mosque, but rather a nearby building.According to reports, at least 42 Syrian civilians lost their lives when US warplanes bombed a mosque full of worshipers on Thursday night during evening prayers in a village west of Aleppo.The Pentagon however asserted on Friday that the airstrike targeted “dozens" of Al-Qaeda militants in a building near the mosque, and it showed reporters what it claimed was an image captured following the attack.This is the image released by the Pentagon on March 17, 2017 of the site it said US warplanes hit on March 16, 2017."The mosque is still standing and relatively unscathed," Pentagon spokesman Navy Captain Jeff Davis claimed."The building we targeted was adjacent" and the strike "

india loses contact with a recently launched satellite

The launch, aboard the GSLV-F08 rocket, appeared to go smoothly, and the satellite successfully completed an orbital maneuver following its deployment into geosynchronous transfer orbit. GSAT-6A was then supposed to execute another operation to raise its orbit a day later. About four minutes after that maneuver occurred, officials lost contact with the satellite.The successful launch of GSAT-6A was seen as a huge triumph for India's space program, so this is certainly a setback. The country has been developing a robust space program capable of competing on the world stage for years. It doesn't help that this is the second satellite that the agency has lost in the last six months; the last failure was one of the launch vehicle PSLV, rather than the satellite itself.Still, all is not lost.

It didn't work.Semenya sat in comfortably didn't look stressed and ran home like she was running her own race mildly inconvenienced by those around her. She won the gold, of course, in a new games record time of 4:00.71.Two and a half seconds separated her from the next runner, Kenya's Beatrice Chepkoech, but six tenths of a second separated runners two to four.

hp enterprise let russia review the pentagon's security software

Echelon says it's required to report software vulnerabilities to the Russian government but only after letting the software makers know. And HPE told Reuters that reviews are done at an HPE facility under the supervision of HPE staff and that no vulnerabilities were found during this particular review.Even if a vulnerability was discovered and not disclosed, it wouldn't allow attackers to just waltz into US military networks, but it could, in theory, make it easier to hide an ongoing attack, delaying defense responses and upping the chance of a successful breach. The review took place around the same time that the US was accusing Russia of initiating cyber attacks against a number of US agenciesandpoliticians.A Pentagon Defense Information Systems Agency spokesperson told Reuters that HPE

u.s. soldiers killed in suicide attack in afghanistan

(KABUL, Afghanistan) — A suicide bombing attack on a NATO convoy in southern Afghanistan on Wednesday left two American service members dead, a Pentagon spokesman said, despite repeated refusals by the U.S. military in Afghanistan to say whether there were any deaths in the assault claimed by the Taliban.Navy Capt. Jeff Davis confirmed the casualties in the attack near Kandahar city. The Pentagon's decision to release the figures seemed to contradict orders issued two months ago by Army Gen. John Nicholson, the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan, barring information about U.S. combat deaths until days after the incident.There was no information on the number of troops wounded.U.S. military officials in Afghanistan refused to give any information about casualties, even after the Pentagon rel
