How Much for "Intelligence"?

The DoD has released the "top line" budget for the past three fiscal years.

The Department of Defense released today the military intelligence program (MIP) appropriated top line budgets for fiscal 2007, 2008, and 2009. The totals, which include both the base budget and supplemental appropriations, are $20.0 billion for fiscal 2007, $22.9 billion for fiscal 2008, and $26.4 billion for fiscal 2009.

The secretary of defense previously approved the public release of the $27.0 billion FY 2010 MIP appropriated top line. The department determined that releasing these top line figures do not jeopardize any classified activities within the MIP. No other MIP budget figures or program details will be released, as they remain classified for national security reasons.

This should be enough for the CIA to contuine training terroist and death squads in Fort Benning, Georgia. You can be sure they are planning to help institute civil unrest in Iran in the near future.As they have done in the past in so many third world countries put a dictator in power to further US interest. All long as they cooperate they will stay in power. I studied about CIA planning of the massacre in El Mazote in Eucador. An goverment backed organization that is responsible for six million deaths. Mostly civilians. Our tax dollars at work! Most Americans don't want to know about their activites. It is important to know because it helps to explain why the US is so hated by many third world countries. El Mazote is one example of many. The CIA is responsible to no one. They have to have a certain mentality. I for one don't have that type of mentality. I couldn't kill innocent men, women and children. Many being elderly. Patroit Act has taken away more of our freedom.Why doesn't the average American care enough to be informed about the workings of our goverment?

You do know that the CIA budget isn't included in this money, right? This is just the DoD funding, and the CIA has its own line in the budget.
