US allocates $14.6 bn for military intelligence
Washington: The Pentagon has said its military intelligence budget for the fiscal 2014 is USD 14.6 billion.
This is for the second year in succession that the Pentagon has released the amount of military intelligence budget but has refrained from going into the details.
The total Military Intelligence Program (MIP) has requested for USD 14.6 billion in 2014 fiscal year, it said yesterday.
"The department determined that releasing this figure does not jeopardise any classified activities within the MIP," said Department of Defence.
"No other figures of MIP budget or program details will be released, as they remain classified for national security reasons," it said, adding the Overseas Contingency Operations (OCO) funding request for the MIP in 2014 will be submitted at a later date.
Last year, USD 21.5 billion was allocated for both MIP and OCO.
