Intelligence Agencies Wasted "Billions" Committee Says

“‘The American public would be outraged if they knew,’ Sen. Christopher S. Bond, Missouri Republican, told The Washington Times. ‘Billions and billions of taxpayer dollars have been wasted.’ Mr. Bond said he was unable to provide details or exact figures because the programs are classified. ‘I wish I could, but I can’t,’ he said, adding that ‘many billions of dollars’ were wasted on ‘just one program’ that had been canceled recently.” (Washington Times, Tuesday)

Pun: Classified waste is no national secret.
