www.wired.com

Figuring out exactly who’s cashing in on the post-9/11 boom in secret programs just got a whole lot easier.

U.S. spy agencies, the State Department and the White House had a collective panic attack Friday over a new Washington Post exposé on the intelligence-industrial complex. Reporters Dana Priest and William Arkin let it drop Monday morning.

It includes a searchable database cataloging what an estimated 854,000 employees and legions of contractors are apparently up to. Users can now to see just how much money these government agencies are spending and where those top secret contrac

Very informative article, lots of links in the Wired article to round out the entire story.

Apparently, there is some transparency... Yay!


But, it appears that the Gov't didn't intend for this to be transparent... go figure.

Check out the source, pretty interesting article.

I don't know. Did you try searching the other ways?

It says there is 4 there, but there are other ways to search the data I think.

I can't remember now, but earlier I was looking at ones in New Mexico, Los Alamos and Albacurqee(or whatever).

It just shows dots and if it is a government or private company.

It doesn't appear to show the names of the organizations/company..interesting but kind of disappointed.

So than I would assume that any Homeland Security office, FEMA office or company that received any funding from the gov would be listed? Kind of a no brainer. Pretty much any and all emergency organizations have received some kind of funding for training and or equipment post 9/11...I haven't read the entire article however in case I am missing something.

Of course I have always believed that most of that money was misspent and not allocated appropriately. If another 9/11 event did take place, I don't believe we are much better equipped to handle it than we were back than. But who knows, maybe all these 'secret' organizations will pop out of the wood work.
