    Default Silly American government, when will you learn?

    "In a holdover from the Cold War when the number really did matter to national security, the size of the US national intelligence budget remains one of the government's most closely guarded secrets. The Office of the Director of National Intelligence, the highest intelligence agency in the country that oversees all federal intelligence agencies, appears to have inadvertently released the keys to that number in an unclassified PowerPoint presentation now posted on the website of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA). By reverse engineering the numbers in an underlying data element embedded in the presentation, it seems that the total budget of the 16 US intelligence agencies in fiscal year 2005 was $60 billion, almost 25% higher than previously believed."

    Man, our U.S. intelligence departments are depressing. When since J. Edgar Hoover have they actually done anything right? They failed multiple times to assassinate various dictators including Castro several times. They didn't find information about 9/11, and they were wrong about WMD's in Iraq. I wonder what they do with all that money anyway. Cocaine and hooker parties for all I'm guessing.

    What a bunch of screwups. That funding needs major cuts.
