Ah Yes, that old 'Black Budget'.

The 'public' has never been able to 'see the particulars' of that 'budget'.

Apparently now we can via Edward Snowden !!




U.S. spy agencies have built an intelligence-gathering colossus since the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, but remain unable to provide critical information to the president on a range of national security threats, according to the government’s top secret budget.

The $52.6 billion “black budget” for fiscal 2013, obtained by The Washington Post from former intelligence contractor Edward Snowden, maps a bureaucratic and operational landscape that has never been subject to public scrutiny. Although the government has annually released its overall level of intelligence spending since 2007, it has not divulged how it uses those funds or how it performs against the goals set by the president and Congress.

Inside the secret 'black budget'

View select pages from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence's top-secret 2013 budget with key sections annotated by The Washington Post.

The 178-page budget summary for the National Intelligence Program details the successes, failures and objectives of the 16 spy agencies that make up the U.S. intelligence community, which has 107,035 employees.

That's only the intelligence black budget. The really good stuff is in the military black budgets.

More interesting stuff divulged.
I wonder what all Mr. Snowden brought with him when he left the NSA?

I have so little patience, but unlike Anon, Mr. Snowden does deliver.
