What's All That Intel Costing Us?

The DoD has released the "Military Intelligence Program Appropriated Top Line Budget for Fiscal 2011", AKA, the "classified stuff."

The Department of Defense released today the MIP appropriated top line budget for fiscal 2011.
The total request, which includes both the base budget and Overseas Contingency Operations appropriations, is $24 billion.

The department determined that releasing this top line figure does 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.

$24 billion buys a lot of black ops...
Oh yeah, and this is just the DoD budget. This doesn't include the CIA, NGA, NSA or any of the other TLAs that aren't part of the DoD.
