Posted:

WASHINGTON (WKOW) – The entire U.S. intelligence budget has been published for the first time, showing it is more than $80 billion for 2010.

Figures show $27 billion of that money is dedicated to military intelligence.

Thursday's release is "the most complete disclosure we have ever had," according to Steven Aftergood, a secrecy specialist at the Federation of American Scientists.

The new Director of National Intelligence James Clapper had promised the budget release.

His office says its share is $53.1 billion. That covers the CIA and some of the other 16 intelligence agencies.
