here is a set of figures dug from the US gov. under a FOIA request. Its for the research and development and also classified procurement funding
These figures are going to stun you.
First lets look at the US Navy.
Classified R&D takes up 14 % of the budget.
Classified procurement takes up 0 % of their budget.
Now lets look at the USAF. This is mind boggling.
Classified R&D takes up 42 % of their budget.
Classified procurement takes up 41 % of their budget !
Out of their entire procurement budget, 41 % of that is on classified projects. 41 %, thats a mind numbing 14 BILLION DOLLARS.
14 BILLION dollars on classified tech that we have not idea about ??
I am stunned !
Don't take my word for it, the Pdf file has it all in black and white for you to look through at your leisure.
