Rumsfeld says $2.3 trillion missing

FROM THE COINCIDENCE FILE:

The day after US Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld announced that the military had lost $2.3 trillion, the accountants responsible for tracking the money were killed when American Airlines Flight 77 crashed into the Pentagon.

“One Army office in the Pentagon lost 34 of its 65 employees in the attack,” reported The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette on Dec. 20, 2001. “Most of those killed in the office, called Resource Services Washington, were civilian accountants, bookkeepers and budget analysts. They were at their desks when American Airlines Flight 77 struck.”

In total, 184 people--including those onboard the hijacked airplane and inside the building--died as a result of the attack on the Pentagon.
