Media: Snowden declassified the "black" budget of US special services

36
Former CIA officer Edward Snowden revealed the shadow budget for US intelligence in 2013. It turned out that their content would cost Washington $ 52,6 billion, writes The Washington Post.


The project "intelligence budget" provides that most of these funds will be allocated to the CIA - $ 14,7 billion. The National Security Agency (NSA) and the National Aerospace Intelligence Agency will receive comparable amounts - by 10,8 and 10,3 billion respectively.

The report, which was at the disposal of the newspaper, notes that after the 11 September 2001 attacks, the security services were seriously strengthened, but even now they cannot provide the US authorities with important information in a number of areas related to threats to national security. During this time, $ 500 billion was allocated to intelligence services, RBC reports.

Terrorism is called a major threat to national security. In addition to anti-terrorism activities, the intelligence officers set themselves four other goals: preventing the spread of nuclear and other weapons mass destruction, protection against foreign espionage, protection against cyber operations, warning the US leadership about critical situations abroad.

In addition, as the newspaper writes, the NSA budget has a sum of several hundred million dollars, which this agency pays American companies every year for secret penetration into their communication networks.

Recall 10 August, US President Barack Obama announced the beginning of the reform of the National Security Agency (NSA), which will increase the transparency of its programs. In turn, the head of the scandalous WikiLeaks site, Julian Assange, called Obama's statement a "victory" for Snowden. A quick intelligence officer received refugee status in Russia.

      There is a possibility, even if it’s small, that Snowden is a deserted Cossack and cannot be blindly trusted. I think the FSB understands everything and will figure it out.

            He did not break anything. I just took what I saw fit. For reference, he worked inside the network and not outside, albeit as a thin client, as we are told here, this does not change ...

            About the disa? And the point is that we need to disinfect him? He has already been building a world scandal with far-reaching consequences, and note our SVR has nothing to do with it. He certainly squeezed out from us for everything that was deemed necessary and gave him refuge. And after a year, either the donkey or the emperor may die.

        Anyway, the hype raised in the media around Snowden was already fed up with the order. The "great fellow", of course, that opened the eyes of the "housewives" a great secret. The fact that "everyone watches everyone", using any opportunities for this, is "an open secret." Well, sore point already ....

        In such a case, there is a joke (with some truth) that is very common among bankers:
        A little old woman comes into the National Bank, holding a bag of money. She insists that she should speak only with the president of the bank about opening a savings account, because "This is a lot of money!" After considerable wrangling and debate, the bank staff finally escorted her to the president’s office (the client is always right!). The president of the bank then asked her how much she wanted to deposit in her account. The old woman replied: "165 thousand dollars!" and dumped the money from her bag onto his desk. The president, of course, was curious where she got all this cash from, and he asked her a question: "Madame, I am surprised that you carry so much cash with you. Where did you get so much money from?" The old woman replied: "I bet." - "Bet? What kind of bet?" - "Well, for example, I can argue with you for 25 thousand dollars that you have square eggs." “Ha,” the president laughed. “This is a stupid bet. You will never win such a bet!” - "So you accept my bet?" the old woman asked defiantly. - "Of course, I bet $ 25000 that my eggs are not square!" “Well, however, since this is a large sum, will I bring my lawyer with me as a witness tomorrow at 10:00?” - "Of course." - the confident president answered.
        That night, the president was very nervous about the bet and spent a lot of time in front of the mirror, checking his balls, turning from side to side, again and again. He carefully checked them until he was convinced that under no circumstances could his eggs be called square, and he would easily win the bet.
        The next morning, at exactly 10:00, the old woman and her lawyer were in the office of the president. She introduced the lawyer to the president and repeated the terms of the bet: "$ 25000 is against the president’s square eggs!" The president agreed again with the bet, and the old woman asked him to lower his pants so that they could watch. The president granted the request. The old woman gazed steadily at the eggs and then asked if she could check them by touch. “Okay,” the president said, “25000 is a lot of money, and I think you should absolutely make sure.” At that moment, he noticed that the lawyer was quietly banging his head against the wall. To the president’s question, “What the hell is going to happen to your adocat?”, The old woman replied: “Nothing, except that I argued with him for $ 100, which I’ll hold at the National Bank’s president’s eggs today at 10:00 "
        PS No matter who Snowden is and what he says. Important - what is the purpose of his sayings.

        This is the global practice of all special services. hi There are “black” budget items; otherwise, auditors and accountants will know how many agents and how much they receive (it will be possible to calculate the agent’s rank) wink The police (now the police) also allocate amounts for operating expenses for agents, which are mostly drunk by the operas themselves (I know for sure) drinks

    An interesting article on how the police in America earn premiums

    The valiant police at the airport stopped a woman whose luggage was noticed by a dog trained to search for drugs. During the search, no drugs were found in the suitcase, but $ 39 in cash were found there. Despite the fact that their woman was not charged with any crimes, and the money was not subject to declaration, since the flight was internal, the amount immediately passed into the ownership of the police. The hostess, of course, did not see them anymore.
    Not so long ago, a policeman stopped a girl for speeding, however, instead of a fine, she took from her “in favor of the state” an expensive pectoral cross. Moreover, I issued an exemption protocol.
    The secretary of the Pentecostal church, Victor Guttsman, was subjected by a policeman, who stopped him for speeding, to “confiscate” 28 thousand dollars donated by parishioners. Guttsman transported a large amount of cash in order to acquire land for his church, which was confirmed by all necessary documents. However, law enforcement officers did not listen to the arguments of the minister of the church, and withdrew the money.

And what's the use of knowing the budgets of the CIA and the NSA?

    I completely agree! In this situation, I see one explanation - the skillful sending of an agent! They wanted to watch the plane ... you know who - it worked out very well! He is simply a technician from whom they made an agent whom no one knows, who plays a certain role in order to become part of a certain operation of the US special services!
