How many of America's tax dollars go into the U.S. intelligence budget? "No one knows exactly what the figure is because the intelligence agencies have successfully argued that nobody, including Congress, should know how much they get, for fear that the mere size of the budget would provide useful information to America's enemies," Dave Lindorff writes for the political newsletter CounterPunch. In spite of that secrecy, the Intelligence Resource Program has estimated that in 2004 there was spending in excess of over $40 billion on intelligence, which represents $150 per year from every man, woman and child in America.

New Hypersonic Vehicles

As part of its Falcon program (PDF file), the Pentagon is developing a suborbital space capsule called the Common Aero Vehicle (CAV). The unmanned "hypersonic glide vehicle," expected to launch by 2010, will be able to travel at five times the speed of sound and carry up to 1,000 pounds of munitions. The next generation of the craft, the Enhanced Common Aero Vehicle (pictured), would offer even greater range and maneuverability. The program reflects the Pentagon's planned usage of space for increasingly militaristic purposes. For more, see articles from the Washington Post and Space Daily.
