Are you getting your $50 billion worth?

We learn today that U.S. spending on "intelligence" (and no, that isn't the education budget) is just over $50 billion. You know, that valuable "intelligence" that informed the world that Iraq had WMD and was in cahoots with Osama bin Laden, that "informs" the world that Iran is busy working on nuclear weapons, and so on.

Of course it isn't all just "intelligence" gathering. Plenty of that money goes for creating things as well - things like creating phony "resistance" groups like Ahmed Chalabi's (who also then serve the purpose of providing some of that "intelligence"), funding anti-Cuban terrorists out of Miami, and no doubt many things we can only guess at, like attempting to overthrow Hugo Chavez (I'm referring to the future, not the past attempt), plotting a "transition" in Cuba, and lots more.
