announced the Defense Department. That amount included the appropriations for the military intelligence program in the Pentagon’s base budget and in its overseas contingency operations accounts, according to the Oct. 30 release. “The department determined that releasing this topline figure does not jeopardize any classified activities,” states the release. DOD
had requested a total of $18.6 billion in Fiscal 2014 for the MIP, but the final topline turned out to be $1.2 billion less. DOD officials said they would not release additional details on the MIP “as they remain classified for national security reasons.” In Fiscal 2013, the Pentagon
received $18.6 billion for the MIP, which comprises the projects that support the Defense Secretary's intelligence, counterintelligence, and related responsibilities.
