Report: DoD Surpasses $1.4T in Post-9/11 War Spending

A new report from the Defense Department says the U.S. government has exceeded $1.46 trillion in direct war-related spending since Sept. 11, 2001.

The 74-page DoD report obtained by Secrecy News provides details on war-related appropriations and expenditures, including costs of military operations, deployed troop support and personnel and equipment transportation, the Federation of American Scientists said Sunday.

The figure includes $83 billion in classified spending, but does not cover non-DoD classified projects such as those run by the CIA.

War-related costs exclude indirect expenditures such as veterans’ benefits, healthcare support for injured personnel and post-conflict reconstruction or stabilization programs.

Total war spending, including indirect costs, exceeded $1.6 trillion in 2014, FAS said.
