Secrecy News on Pentagon's Black Budget

Pentagon's Black Budget Soars to Cold War Heights:

The Department of Defense budget request for 2007 includes about $30.1 billion in classified or 'black' spending, according to a new analysis by the Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments.

'In real (inflation-adjusted) terms the $30.1 billion FY 2007 request includes more classified acquisition funding than any other defense budget since FY 1988, near the end of the Cold War, when DoD received $19.7 billion ($29.4 billion in FY 2007 dollars) for these programs,' wrote author Steven Kosiak.
