The people who did this transfer of control 3 minutes before Biden's inauguration need to be investigated and we need to find out how high up this conspiracy went.

So the Pentagon conducts a major, secretive cybersecurity operation with only minutes to spare in the wildly corrupt Trump administration, giving control of coveted IP addresses to a startup with no structure. Excuse me for wondering WTF this was about.

""The decision to launch and the scheduling of the DDS pilot effort was agnostic of administration change."

Very strange wording. I do consider myself to be agnostic but I have never heard it used in a context like that.

Why do cl0wns seem to think you can actually be a 1st world country while operating as a 3rd world dictatorship? It always leads to revolution or self-destruction due to self-indulgence. Right now, the cl0wn brigade is all about destroying socialism while doing exactly the things that make it seem so attractive.

The GAO consistently issue a disclaimer audit report available because there are insufficient records as to where 40% of our budget is spent.

"GAO found that DOD and DFAS policies and procedures for accounting
adjustments are insufficient, outdated, and inconsistently implemented. For
example, DOD's current policies do not define what constitutes adequate
supporting documentation for system-generated adjustments, nor have DOD and
DFAS established policies for identifying the cause of the adjustments,
developing and implementing action plans to reduce the need for adjustments,
and monitoring the effectiveness of those action plans. Because DOD and DFAS
are not ensuring that their policies and procedures are up-to-date and
consistently implemented, there is an increased risk that inaccurate, invalid, or
unapproved adjustments will be recorded in DOD's core financial reporting
system, resulting in a misstatement in DOD's consolidated financial statements."

Since Trump did it, it's about the same thing it's always about. One way or another, he's the one who profited from it . . . either as a favor to some congressman or . . . he wanted those IP address to keep spreading his lies and propaganda for 2024 or (my favorite) . . . to threaten contractors with cancellation of existing and future military contracts if they bailed out on supporting him, i.e. send him money NOW or else.

He should be able to splain it. Or maybe he was told not to because we need all the internet security we can get.

Personally, I don't think anything came of this while the IPs were leased or handed over to the company.
