The Pentagon and HUD can't account for $21 trillion over just the past 17 years—enough money to pay back the current U.S. national debt.

This article claims the Pentagon and HUD lost $21 trillion over a 17 year period from 1998 to 2015, and cites reports from the Office of the Inspector General and the Office of the Comptroller. This figure seems highly dubious on its face given that the lost funds claimed would amount to $1.24 trillion per year, but the entire DOD budget is about $600 billion, and the entire HUD budget is about $33 billion. I suspect a more thorough review of the reports cited in the article will reveal major errors in this article's understanding of their conclusions.
