“Biden national security adviser Jake Sullivan was grilled on CNN Sunday after the Pentagon revealed that the U.S. made at least a $3 billion accounting error in valuing the weapons that it has sent to Ukraine. ‘There was this very bizarre admission from the Pentagon this week of an accounting error that suggested that the U.S. has at least $3 billion that it didn’t know it had that it can use for Ukraine aid,’ CNN anchor Jaker Tapper said. ‘That’s a hell of an accounting error.’ … The Pentagon admitted Thursday that it overestimated the value of weapons it has sent to Ukraine by $3 billion amidst criticism from GOP members of Congress that American funding for the war in Ukraine threatens further escalation of the conflict, according to AP News.” (05/22/23)
