The amount of money assigned by the United States to classified "black projects" has now exceeded over $56 billion. New advances in military technology such as the stealth bomber were in development as black projects for years before finally being revealed to the public, in this modern age what technical marvels are currently being worked on behind closed doors that we still know nothing about ?

"The Defense Department just released its king-sized, $708 billion budget for the next fiscal year. Much of the proposed spending is fairly detailed — noting exactly how many helicopters the Pentagon plans to buy and how many troops it plans on playing."

And don't forget DARPA, essentially the civilian military defense research arm, which has all kinds of crazy projects listed, and their budget books are online, detailing their experiments and their costs. It is mind boggling.

  • Most info on anything you may want to know is out there. Go find it. Do research!

Umm.... Only 56 billion? Wow thats wierd! The Pentagon and DOD have been audited. In 1998, 1999, and 2000 the amount of money that would disappear with out a single trace was in the neighborhood of 2.3 TRILLION. That was each of those 3 years. In 2001, just a few days before 9-11 and amount of 3 TRILLION disappeared with out a single trace. The 56 billion is microscopic potatoes! 56 billion  :lol: what a joke!
