    Those items were likely sold, and are being used by someone in Turkmenistan, China, or maybe Brazil. Either that or they never existed in the first place. Not physically at least. They're probably paper transactions that got someone's company some free cash for service not rendered (in this case equipment not rendered). You've got to love government. Why would anyone care that there's waste? It's not like people will be fired, or the cash comes out of someone's pocket on site. It's tax money you know. It grows on trees.
