Leaked Department of Defense Report Blames Budget Cuts For Lax Security at Naval Yard
Daily Mail reported:
Budget cuts may have been the cause for lax security at the Washington D.C. Navy Yards where 12 people were shot dead and eight others were injured on Monday morning.
A yet-to-be-released government audit reveals that federal oversight investigators concluded that the reduced security measures at the base left security risks unaddressed.
A report by the Department of Defense Inspector General’s office shows that they were concerned about the access that would be granted to outside contractors- like that of Aaron Alexis, the suspect who was killed by police during the Monday morning shooting. The report states that the Navy ‘did not effectively mitigate access control risks associated with contractor installation access’ to the Navy Yards.
Despite the budget cuts, the Obama’s have not cut their living expenses or lavish vacations that cost the taxpayers $1.4 billion per year.
