34. Estimates of the cost of the Global War on Terror since 9/11 are really nuts
The Congressional Research Service/CRS estimated $859 billion in a report sent to the 110th Congress on July 14, 2008, but this same Congress just passed even more during the world financial crisis and "DISAGREEMENT" over a financial "bailout".

The Cost of Iraq, Afghanistan, and other Global War on Terror Operations Since 9/11 (CRS RL33110-pdf archived by Federation of American Scientists))

You'd have to be MAD to believe this report today, considering the FACT that RUMSFELD'S DoD "lost" a TRILLION DOLLARS-and the DoD's Inspector General's office couldn't find it either...
