Was having this conversation. What stuff is actually defense related, but is budgeted under other areas in order to hide the size of the defense budget?

Black Programs under CIA, NSA, DIA, Spec Ops under Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Delta Force, DEA, Etc. If a program cost less than $1 Million dollars it is easy to hide, right. It doesn't have to go on any budget as long as the budget originates in a major budget line. This is true for the US only.

The Church Committe was supposed to have oversight over the CIA after 1970, Watergate Scandal.

We know from history that the CIA and the US Military has been involved in sabotaging elections in foreign countries and in all out battles.
